Barbara Sollner-Webb elected West Laurel Civic Association president [West Laurel]

The West Laurel Civic Association held its Fall General Meeting last week with the newly elected president, Barbara Sollner-Webb. After eight years as the president, Melissa Daston has stepped down. Daston was dedicated, enthusiastic, hard-working and just wonderful as our past president. Our West Laurel community is forever grateful to her for all the continuous years of being vigilant and effective in all ways possible.

Now Barbara has taken those reins and she will have quite the "volunteer" job of president of the West Laurel Civic Association. Many people are already aware of this, but the West Laurel Civic Association is an integral part of this community.

So thank you, West Laurel Community Association.

Joe Murchison started off the meeting with a presentation about Side By Side's Great Start Program, which is a series of workshop evenings at six Laurel elementary schools. It is for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first- and second-grade parents to learn ways to help their children develop strong foundations in behavior, reading and math. There are activities for the children while the parents are in the workshops. Last year, 226 children and parents participated at Bond Mill Elementary School alone.

Bond Mill Elementary will hold its annual Fall Craft Show Nov. 22. Craftors are signing up now to rent tables. Six-foot tables are only $25. This is a very well-attended annual event. If interested in renting a table or two, call the Bond Mill office between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Jack and Linda Barcheski are celebrating the birth of their newest grandchild. Their daughter, Brooke, gave birth to Everett Hank Moore Oct.17. He weighed 9 pounds 2 ounces. Brooke and her husband, Jeremy, delivered their baby together at their home. Though it was a planned home birth, the midwife got to their home right after little Everett was born. Almost 2-year-old Ronin was there to welcome his little brother with his parents. All are doing well and are ecstatic with joy and love.
