Health association to hold its last meeting of summer


The North County Neighbors column in yesterday's Anne Arundel edition of The Sun incorrectly states the cost of transportation to summer school at Glen Burnie High School. The bus service will be free.

The Sun regrets the error.

Community members are invited to attend a meeting of the Brooklyn Park Health Association at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Brooklyn Park Health Center, 300 Hammonds Lane. This will be the last meeting for the summer. Meetings will resume in September.

Association officers for the 1995-1996 season are: Cecelia Fabula, president; Cecelia Olszewski, vice president; Elizabeth Hildt, secretary; and Minnie Grady, treasurer.


North County High School's offices will be open this summer from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. New students need to register for classes as soon as possible. You can do so by making an appointment with the Guidance Office, 222-6970. Proof of residence must be provided before new students will be admitted for registration.


High school students may register for summer school from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at Glen Burnie High School. Classes will begin July 11 and end with final exams Aug. 10. Registration is $125 per course plus a $125 school bus transportation fee that must be paid in full at the time of registration. Any student planning to attend summer school must get a registration form from his or her guidance counselor.


Looking for something to do to keep cool this summer? Why not visit the Brooklyn Park Library and register for the Summer Reading Program. Children entering grades kindergarten through sixth in the fall are invited to participate. Pick up a Summer Reading Starter Kit when you register and start keeping track of the books you read this summer. Everyone who registers will receive a free pass to the Baltimore Zoo and can earn coupons for treats at Wendy's, Friendly's, 7-Eleven and McDonald's. Take time to visit the library now.


Harbor Hospital Center needs volunteers to help in several departments. The patient representative needs energetic individuals who can help deliver newspapers to patients, listen to their concerns and help supply information about hospital services. Volunteers also are needed to transport wheelchair-bound patients between departments and make deliveries. For more information, call 347-3478.

* The Diabetes Center needs relatives of community members with Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Trial. The test is designed to find out if insulin can prevent or delay the onset of Type 1 diabetes. The trials are being held in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health. Harbor Hospital is one of four area hospitals selected as a screening site for this major national study. For more information, call 347-2563.
