Five bands, varied units set for parade


AT 10 A.M. Saturday, the Crofton Civic Association will sponsor the 7th Annual Armed Forces Day Parade. The route begins at Crofton Woods Elementary School and continues around Crofton Parkway to Crofton Elementary School.

Many musical groups and organizations are involved in this year's parade. The Arundel High School Marching Band will perform, along with four out-of-state bands -- which will be in the area to compete at a music festival.

Parade watchers will also enjoy motorcycle riders from the Boumi Temple, Prince George's Bag Pipe Unit, the Zamboni from Skate Nation in Piney Orchard, Crofton Athletic Council baseball and softball players, political notables from the area, the Maryland State Police Annapolis J Barracks Color Guard, floats, military vehicles from Fort Meade and other participants in the celebration of patriotism and community spirit.

The parade is fun to watch. But if you miss it, Jones Commun- ications will televise the event and present it on Channel 22 throughout May.

For more information, call Linda Van Sickel at Crofton Town Hall, 410-721-2301.

Club cleanup

Saturday was cold, dreary and drizzly. That doesn't sound like a great day for a pool party, does it?

A group of energetic souls from the Crofton Swim and Tennis Club ignored the weather and took part in the club's annual cleanup day, preparing for the swim season. Bob Meger, Peter Jensen and my husband George installed rails on the pool-house deck. Larry Schneider spent hours grooming the volleyball court. Vicki Zwainz, her son Jon, and Ron Fries prepared the pool entrance. Jim Engleman and his son worked on a drainage project to control erosion in the play areas. Hank Kuzma got the basketball court ready.

The pool opens May 23. Membership is open to residents of the Crofton Triangle.

Call Mary Ann Davis for information at 410-721-3133.


The Christian German-American Women's Group will meet Monday at noon in the Blue Hall at the Chapel Center on Grandea Road in Fort Meade.

For more information, call Irene Kucholik at 301-621-7862 or Lisa Beilke at 301-604-5880.
