THE OWEN BROWN village board has appointed Susan Mead and Richard Diener to fill vacancies on the board. They will serve until the next board elections in April 1997.
Former members were Wanda Hurt, who was elected to represent the village on the Columbia Council, and Catherine Hester, who resigned.
Also in Owen Brown, village manager Ruth Bothse and her staff will miss Othella Rogers. She has been on the village staff for six years and has resigned to accept a position at the Columbia Association's Member Service Center at The Mall in Columbia.
The staff will assume her responsibilities as receptionist/clerk.
Magic and meeting
Magician Steve Nystrom will entertain children while their parents attend the Phelps Luck Elementary School's Parent Teacher Association meeting at 7: 30 p.m. Sept. 11.
It's a great opportunity for the parents to get to know each other, the school's staff and faculty. Children will enjoy the evening, too.
Information: (410) 313-6886.
Welcome to PTA
Owen Brown Middle School Parent Teacher Association President Wanda Hurt welcomes fellow officers Estelle O'Connor, vice president; Marsha Pruitt, secretary; and Tim Rainey, treasurer.
Rainey also volunteers as a delegate to the PTA Council with April Worth.
Hurt invites the school's parents to volunteer their time and interest as recording or corresponding secretary.
PTA events benefit students and keep parents in touch with what's new at school. Call (410) 313-7607 to volunteer or leave your name at the school office, 6700 Cradlerock Way.
It's a wonder
Two Owen Brown village neighborhoods may have no traffic problems! Or, so it would seem.
Owen Brown village's traffic action committee would like to know if residents of the Elkhorn and Dasher Green neighborhoods have traffic concerns -- and if they'd like to share them.
Committee Chairman John Durante has been inviting representatives from each neighborhood to volunteer to be part of the traffic committee.
To date, no one has called (410) 381-9439, or (410) 381-8447.
It's not too late to apply to be a member of the Kings Contrivance board of directors.
Kings Contrivance manager Anne Dodd has extended the application deadline to mid-September.
Many residents have been away on vacations, and Dodd does not want anyone to miss the opportunity to work for the community.
Bring your letter of interest to Amherst House in the Kings Contrivance Village Center or mail it to the Village Board, 7251 Eden Brook Drive, Columbia, Md. 21046.
John Kaye has volunteered to be second vice chairman of the Kings Contrivance resident architectural committee.
You can call Dodd, (410) 381-9600 for details on meetings and community involvement.
Owen Brown village also needs residents to join its resident architectural committee.
Interested residents can attend the 7: 30 p.m. Aug. 28 Village Board meeting at the Owen Brown Community Center, or call (410) 381-0202.
Architectural committee members are Owen Brown neighbors who meet once a month to review resident applications for exterior alterations and in-home businesses.
By popular request, the Other Barn at Oakland Mills has coordinated another Bridal Gala, this one for Sept. 29.
A similar event last spring was a sellout. The audience left with door prizes as well as information about planning a beautiful wedding.
The September gala will offer a new twist to bridal fashions -- "convertible" wedding dresses.
After the wedding, the bride may take her gown back to Bridal Path Apparel and Weddings, to "convert" the dress into day or evening wear.
Photographers, caterers and florists will offer advice and door prizes.
Tickets are $5 in advance, $7 at the door. For information, call (410) 730-4610 or (410) 596-5237.
Everybody's talking -- some for it, some not -- about the proposed West Side Athletic Facility. Here's a chance for East Columbia residents to talk to Rob Goldman at 7: 30 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Owen Brown Community Center, 6900 Cradlerock Way.
Goldman represents the Columbia Association as vice president of membership services. Information: (410) 381-0202.
