Program to focus on child care for working mothers


Inspired by temperatures far too perfect for the unpredictable month of March, Mother Nature shed her patent leather high-tops, hiked up her gingham skirt and cavorted among the crocuses, providing gleeful residents with a rosy preview of things to come. I call it her Spring Tease.


Plans are set for "Child Care for Working Moms," a program sponsored by the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce. It will be held at noon tomorrow at the Severna Park library. The cost for an executive box lunch and the program is $7 for members, $10 for nonmembers. Call 987-6625 today.

The Severna Park, West Anne Arundel County and Greater Crofton Chambers of Commerce will hold a seminar on increasing leadership and productivity through time management from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 24, at Piney Orchard Visitors Center in Odenton. Call 987-6625.

The chamber is sponsoring a blood drive with the American Red Cross April 7 in Park Plaza. For more information, call Nancy Fox at 544-6250.

Deadline for becoming part of the chamber's 1995 business guide is fast approaching. The publication is distributed to more than 20,000 homes in greater Severna Park. Only members are included. For more information, call 987-6625.


Foreign language students studying French at Severna Park Middle School will be able to practice with the pros when 25 students and their teachers from Buc, France, near Versailles, arrive April 10 for a three-week stay.

The French students will be introduced during a schoolwide assembly April 12. By the time they attend a farewell pizza party and concert at the school at 7 p.m. April 25, they will have become, no doubt, very Americanized. They return home April 28.

The French club is selling pizza kits, dessert kits and bread sticks until March 20 to help finance its activities. Information: 647-7900.


The Ladies of the Knights of Columbus, Holy Trinity Council #3413, is planning a spring fashion show and luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 25 at the Columbian Center on Ritchie Highway. There will be a trombola table, door prizes and a mini-bazaar. Tickets are $10. Information: 766-5212.


Thanks to the fund-raising efforts of sports boosters, parents, alumni, and community leaders and friends, Archbishop Spalding High School will dedicate its new athletic complex at 10:30 a.m. March 25.

Two lacrosse games will be played after the ceremony. Spalding plays the Park School girls at 11 a.m. The boys will play at 1 p.m. Information: 969-9105.


If you're just a little bogged down with the responsibilities of motherhood, the Greater Severna Park Moms Club thinks spring is the perfect time to take a fresh approach.

The nonprofit organization that provides a network for mothers of all ages to meet each other and share information about rearing children. It also provides an outlet for artisans and sponsors trips and social functions.

New members are always welcome. For more information, call Sharon Crum at 987-0244, or Tracy Britten at 544-5781.
