Area Scouts plan activities for day in the park


The Glen Burnie Park Scouting community is planning a "Scouts in the Park Day" Saturday at the Glen Burnie Park Recreation area off Marlboro Road.

Activities, sponsored by Cub Pack 873, Boy Scout Troop 873 and the Girl Scouts of Glen Burnie Park, will include a parade, skills demonstrations and contests and an overnight camp-out.

Organizers of this outing said they hope to share the positive contributions Scouting makes to a community.

"We are trying to show the children of Glen Burnie Park that they do have other things they can get involved with. Scouting offers so many opportunities," said Assistant Scoutmaster Alice Neary.

Opening ceremonies are at 8:30 a.m. A parade will leave Glen Burnie Park Elementary School and travel through the neighborhood.

Once the marchers have returned to the recreation area behind the school, they can participate in skills stations ranging from first aid to knot making. After lunch, they can demonstrate their new-found skills during a relay race.

Supper will be cooked and served by the Scouts for their family members at 4 p.m.

Songs and stories by the campfire will round out the day as Scouts prepare to spend the night under the stars. Only tent camping will be allowed, and each family must provide its own equipment.

While the day's activities are open to the community, the evening camp-out is limited to Scouts and their families.

For information on the event, call Alice Neary, 766-4458, or Gary Hawk, 761-3937.


Planning your family's financial future will be the topic tomorrow night at the general meeting of the Point Pleasant-Shoreland Improvement Association.

After a business meeting, lawyer Greg Howard will discuss "Living Trusts" and "Taxes After Death."

Members are encouraged to bring a nonperishable donation for the local food bank.

The meeting is at 7:30 p.m. at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 1451 Furnace Ave.

For information, call Joan Valenti, 766-4310.


The Maryland Science Center puts the fizz, foam and flash in chemistry when it presents "What's the Matter" today at the North County Library, 1010 Eastway. Demonstrations are scheduled for 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The performance, part of the library's Summer Reading Program, is open to all children entering grades kindergarten through sixth. Advance registration is not required, but seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For information, call 222-6270.


Brownie Troop 941 of Harundale Presbyterian Church is sponsoring a free carwash from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Roy Rogers restaurant, Fifth Avenue and Ritchie Highway.

Troop members have been collecting sponsors, who will make donations based on the number of cars each girl washes.

A second carwash is planned for Aug. 12.
