Glad to see my pic peering out from the top corner of my column last week. Week before last, I was surprised to see Beverly smiling at me from both her Perryville column as well as from my Port Deposit column. Who would have thought I'd be a victim of "identity theft?" Ha!
Several of Cecil County's Fire Prevention Ambassadors were quite busy last weekend. On Saturday, Perryville's fire prevention ambassadors worked a quarter auction in Minker Hall, Perryville, proceeds from which benefited their programs. Then on Sunday, Junior Fire Chiefs, Little Misses, Junior Misses and Miss Fire Preventions from both Cecil and Harford County worked a basket bingo at Singerly Fire Hall, Elkton. The proceeds of the Sunday afternoon bingo benefited the Cecil County Ladies Auxiliary.
