LAST WEEK, Forest Ridge Elementary School and the local Pizza Hut held a fund-raising event at the restaurant.
The restaurant gave the school's PTA a portion of the receipts for the night.
Well, it seems that no one ate at home that night. The PTA is now $560 richer.
Special thanks go to Maribeth Donohue and to Sheila Abrams for all the work they did to make the night a success.
A new civic organization is being formed.
Residents of North Laurel and Scaggsville are invited to join the new Rocky Gorge/Scaggsville Regional Association.
Its mission is to keep local residents informed about new zoning, traffic and other changes, and to let local officials know about residents' concerns.
For more information, call 725-5754.
Pop's temporarily closing
Pop's General Store, famed for the quantity of nickel candy available, is closing temporarily today.
Jake Croston plans to reopen in January. He hopes to rearrange the shelves and redecorate a bit.
If you feel like you've lived here for a while but barely know the neighbors, there's a solution to the problem.
Come to the Savage Community Association's holiday party.
Celebrate Kwanzaa, Solstice, Hanukkah and Christmas with the community.
Rosemary Houghton is coordinating this fun-filled event.
There will be a disc jockey, crafts, goodies, a raffle, games and a special visit from an elderly gentleman in a red suit.
Come for the fun, and, at the same time, get the names of the most reliable baby sitters, plumbers and mechanics. Find out who lives in that mysterious house you pass each day.
Get to know the neighbors.
The party will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, at the Savage Volunteer Fire Company Hall on Lincoln Street.
For details, directions, and especially to offer help, call Houghton at (301) 725-0544.
Ever wonder where pilots and rocket scientists come from?
Well, the answer is from Savage.
Jesse Adami, son of longtime residents Carole and Jack Adami, has graduated from Embry Riddle in Florida in aeronautical engineering.
He's hoping to become a professional pilot and is well on his way to reaching that goal. He has logged more than 900 hours in the air.
Area residents may remember his flight-related activities as youngster. With his dad, he flew radio-controlled airplanes. He'd earned just about every flight-related merit badge while a member of Boy Scout Troop 454 in Savage.
He participated in the rocketry program offered by the 4-H Club, and he attended the Space Camp in Atlanta as a middle schooler.
As you vacation over the next few years, pay attention to the voice welcoming you aboard the plane. It may well be Captain Adami.
