With approach of summer, few chances left to catch student musicians in concert

There are only a few more opportunities to hear young local musicians in concert before the close of the school year on June 14.

The Clarksville Elementary School chorus will present a concert at the school on Monday, June 10. The Clarksville Middle School orchestra is scheduled for its concert on Wednesday, June 12.


Happy birthday to Mun Pan Sumlat. The perky young lady turned 4 on June 3. Have a great year, Mun Pan.

Clarksville Middle held its second annual Family Fun Run recently. More than 100 runners — including parents, students and staff — participated. Many more came to cheer them on, dance to the music of an entertaining disc jockey and enjoy a picnic dinner. Renee Lennon, Elizabeth Harris and Lee Ann Pazulski did a fine job of organizing the fun run with plenty of help form parent volunteers.


Boys' winners were first place, Rahul Reddy; second place, Chris Young; and third place, Sam Johnson.

Girls' winners were first place, Owen Dannely; second place, Ally Merwitz; and third place, Elana Hamet.

Congratulations to the winners and all runners. Most of us can use all the exercise we can get; you took advantage of the opportunity to have fun with exercise.

The Fun Run was immediately followed by the school's annual Enrichment Fair. The school was filled with students engaging in live debates, projects and demonstrations, an art gallery, and seminars covering a wide variety of interests.

Congratulations to Caleb and Daniel Woo who recently graduated from Howard Community College at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. The boys are the sons of Donna and Richard Woo, of Wayside Drive.

The two will continue their studies at the University of Maryland. Caleb Woo will be in the Clark School of Engineering. While Daniel Woo will study biology.

Best wishes as you continue your studies.

There is an abundance of good news coming from the Parmar family.


Puja Parmar is delighted to have a summer internship with Northrup Grummen. Internships and summer jobs can be a wonderful enhancement to classroom studies.

Her proud mom, Clarksville dentist Dr. Rashmi Parmar, also had good news to share. Parmar was recently designated as a Master Dental Sleep Physician from the Elite Dental Institute's annual Collaborative Sleep Symposium. This was the first occasion for which the MDSP designation was awarded, thus making Parmar an innovator and leader in the field.

Parmar and office business administrator Evelyn Bayles were thrilled to be nominated for the Excellence in Community Service Award by the Arc of Howard County. Parmar has been serving our community since 1991.

Bayles has more than two decades of experience in the field of dental office management. She coordinates patient care for Parmar Family and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Both ladies look forward to continued service in the community.
