Allnations dancers are set to perform at North County High


THE PERFORMING Arts Association of Linthicum will feature a concert by the Allnations Dance Company at 8 p.m. Saturday at North County High School.

The U.S.-based multinational dance ensemble will perform "Joy in Every Land," a narrated, capsule tour of dance around the world.

In 1963, dancers living at International House on the campus of Columbia University in New York formed the professional company to offer dances and folklore from many countries. Today, they maintain a full schedule of performances at schools and universities.

During the concert's intermission, an art exhibit will be shown in the cafeteria. Senior students of Martha Lenhoff, who teaches at the Pascal Senior Center, will display their pastels, watercolors and oils.

Season tickets cost $20.

Benefit is successful

Nan Duerling reports that the recent benefit concert at Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church for Habitat for Humanity was a tremendous success.

"It was a wonderful afternoon, there was a good turnout from the community and the free-will offering made almost $1,000," she said.

Her husband, Craig, is a member of the Classic Brass Quintette that donated its time for the fund-raiser.

Westinghouse Corp. recently joined the project as a corporate sponsor, but one church partner still is needed. Construction of the house, on Key Avenue in Pumphrey, is to begin in July.

'Penny Wars' for good cause

St. Philip Neri School students are waging "The Penny Wars" today through Friday to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Each homeroom has a jar to fill with as many pennies as possible.The school's goal is $1,500.

The contest gives the students room to "sabotage" each other's efforts and add to their collection.

Cystic fibrosis has taken the lives of two former St. Philip Neri students.

Troop 550 renews charter

When Boy Scout Troop 550 was formed 32 years ago, Lyndon Johnson was president and "My Fair Lady" won the Oscar for best picture.

The group recently renewed its charter during a dinner celebration.

Del. James E. Rzepkowski presented the troop with a new Maryland flag and a Maryland House of Delegates citation recognizing its achievements.

During the evening, rank advancement cards were presented to Scouts and adult leaders, and Scout mothers were recognized for their support.
