Help! Student volunteers are urgently needed immediately.
Logan McDonough is finishing her junior year at Glenelg High School and is in the process of completing her Girl Scout Gold Award involving peer tutoring in the HCPSS Comprehensive Summer School Program. Logan needs HCPSS students to help by volunteering as a peer tutor for any period of time during the June 23-Aug. 1 session. She is encouraging all students to volunteer to help in any subject/level offered in Summer School.
Logan touts this as a great opportunity to help students from all over the county and it will demonstrate and enforce knowledge of your favorite subject. Often the best way to learn is with a fellow student. Give it a try. Contact Logan immediately to volunteer or just to ask questions and learn more about how you can help.

Relay for Life of Western Howard County is inviting the entire community to come to Western Regional Park on June 13 for a free, fun-filled overnight event to celebrate cancer survivorship and raise money for the American Cancer Society. Opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 p.m. That's this Friday evening, June 13, at 6:30 p.m.
Relay is a non-competitive, overnight walk-a-thon, but you do not need to stay all night to participate. Come enjoy the entertainment and try to stay until at least after the lighting of the luminaria. It's a beautiful sight and an impressive reminder of those lost in the battle against cancer. In the 2012 and 2013 event, Western Howard County Relay raised over $145,000 thanks to great community support. Won't you help to make this a banner year?
Carol and Marvin Lintz of Wayside Drive celebrated something very special on May 24, the wedding of their granddaughter Christine Taylor of Elkridge to Joel Rogers of Wisconsin. The ceremony took place at the Patuxent Female Institute. Mother Nature did her part by providing perfect weather. Everything was gorgeous.
Christina's parents are Bradley Lintz and his wife Deana of Elkridge and Linda Reynolds of Baltimore. Her other grandparents are Linda and Harold Bell of Columbia.
You might wonder how this Maryland and Wisconsin couple met. They were both college students in Chicago. Following graduation, both found jobs in Los Angeles. Grandma Carol's only lament is that California is so far away. Still, she wishes them much happiness and continued career success. Best wishes for a long and happy marriage to Joel and Christine Rogers.
