Savage Mill turned elegant for a good cause recently. The group the Perfect 10 Event hosted a fundraiser called an Evening of Elegance at the Savage Mill to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
The event was held throughout the Mill with food from over 20 local restaurants. The shops were all open in support and supporters could dance to live music and mingle with celebrity guests while supporting a good cause.
If you would like to learn more ways to support such a worthwhile cause, go to http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.
The Savage Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting on Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Faith and Ministry Center at 9032 Baltimore St. The entrance is on the side.

The North Laurel Leaders are the local 4-H club. They are always active and recently the club made dog toys from fleece and collected items for pets, including food, and donated them to the local animal shelter.
The club also attended the Howard County 4-H Achievement Program, where many received awards for their projects in crafts, babysitting, public speaking and other craft-related events.
Members recently held their Halloween party and the theme was a Who-Dun-It costume party. Members had to figure out who committed the crime by finding clues in different rooms. The rooms each held activities for the members. 4-H is open to anyone 8 years old and oldeer and has Clovers for kids ages 5 to 7. For more information, contact them at NorthLaurelLeaders@Howard4-H.org.
Do not forget that the PTA Council of Howard County is giving away winter coats, hats and gloves at the North Laurel Community Center on Nov. 17, 9 a.m. to noon. This winter could be a very cold one, so make sure everyone is well covered.
Terrapin Adventures is more than a local business. Last month it held a special event called Zombie Apocalypse Survival Training, which was a big success. It donated some proceeds to the Baltimore Inner City Outings, a nonprofit that serves Baltimore City kids by providing educational yet enjoyable, safe outdoor experiences for them at no cost.
Terrapin Adventures is at the Savage Mill and will be open every weekend in November. For more information, to go http://www.terrapinadventures.com.
