Music with a message
Bethel Assembly of God in Savage will play host to a special presentation by Y. C. Vocal Band at 10 a.m. Sunday.
This traveling musical group brings an anti-drug message in a mix of rap music, humor and testimony.
Bernie and Cathy Gillott will lead the "Team," as the cast is called in this effort. It's a lively way to spend a late August Sunday morning.
The permance will take place at Bethel Christian Academy, the church's temporary home while it waits for its building to go up.
Information: (301) 498-3344.
Hit the courts
For other ways to spend these last days of summer, check out the refurbished tennis courts in Savage Park.
Last year, the courts looked like a set for a bad horror movie -- peeling red and green surfaces, oozing asphalt, broken fencing.
That's all changed.
The fencing is new, the courts are resurfaced and green. Dig out the old rackets from the garage and get moving while the days are long and cool.
While at the park, I spoke to Mark Fisher, one of the staff members there.
He was getting ready to paint the trim in and around the buildings.
Others on the staff have stained the new wood fencing around the parking lots. They also are trying to maintain the playground.
Vandalism has been a problem in the past. But the park does look good. Future projects include regrading the volleyball court and refinishing park benches.
Howard County Library Savage Branch presents "You and Me Babe," a popular library experience for 1-year-olds.
This short program will take place at 10: 30 a.m. Sept. 4. Registration starts Aug. 28.
A limited number of seats are available.
Information: (410) 880-5978.
See new exhibits
For those who can look past the opening of school and all the travail it entails, Montpelier Cultural Arts Center offers three new exhibits.
Baltimore artist Catherine Jones exhibits a collection of landscape paintings at the Main Gallery from Sept. 1 to Oct. 25.
She received her master of fine arts degree from Maryland Institute, College of Art. She is represented by the Resurgam Gallery in Baltimore, and has had solo exhibits in galleries in New York, Baltimore and at Rockland Arts Center in Ellicott City.
Ceramic artist Linda Bernard will show her "Medieval Reliefs and Raku Refractions," in the center's Resident Artist's Gallery Sept. 5 through Sept. 30. It's an unusual mix, medieval themes interpreted in a Japanese ceramic technique.
Printmaker Debora Wood will exhibit her works from Sept. 6 through Oct. 27. This internationally known artist has exhibited in the Netherlands and across the United States. Her works have been collected by the University of Dallas, the University of Mississippi and the Madison Art Center.
