Woman's club recognizes members' accomplishments


The Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights conducted its annual Awards Luncheon last Tuesday at the Rolling Road Golf Club.

President Anne Yakaitis presented several awards, won by the club and by individual members last month at the Maryland Federation of Woman's Clubs Convention at the BWI Marriott.

The luncheon's special guests were Chelsea Dansworth, the club's 1992 Hugh O'Brien Youth (HOBY) representative, and her mother. Chelsea, a sophomore at North County High School, discussed the leadership seminar and how much the weekend meant to her.

The club also honored two of its members, Eloise Vaughan and Marge Smith. Vaughan was recognized for her work with the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum (PAAL) and the Concerts in Linthicum Park series last summer.

Smith received the Regional Award from Soroptimist International for her contribution to the environment. She spends hours planting flowers and trees and clearing debris to beautify community sites. The award was presented by Anne Skillman, )) the Soroptimist's South Atlantic Region chairwoman of the Making a Difference for Women Committee.

The new officers are Celeste Riddle, president; Rosalie Falter, first vice-president; Colein Fischbach, second vice-president; Karen Bowers, recording secretary; Carol Novak, corresponding secretary; and Elizabeth Higdon, treasurer.

Community cleanup days are coming. Get your spring yard work and house cleaning completed, and take your refuse to the parking lot of Linthicum Park on Benton Avenue. The trash containers will be there from 8 a.m. May 27 to 8 a.m. May 29. Please note that the trash containers will be removed very early Friday morning. Do not leave any trash if you do not see the truck.

Everyone is asked to please load their debris into the back of the trash containers first in order to fill them more efficiently. No commercial waste and hazardous or toxic materials (like oil, paint or pesticides) may be placed in the containers. The county tentatively has set a hazardous waste collection day for June 6.
