Eighth-graders to explore Italy, Greece next month


So, what are you doing for spring break?

Forty-four eighth-graders from Severn School will spend March 5 to 16 touring Italy and Greece.

I'm not sure who will get the biggest kick out of this trip -- the pupils or the 28 chaperones.

Under the direction of Linda Bourdelaise, assistant director of the middle school, the youngsters, faculty members and parents will visit attractions in Delphi and Athens, and then board a ferry for a picturesque sail to Rome.

In the Eternal City they'll visit the Sistine Chapel, the Catacombs and the Appian Way, followed by trips to Capri and Sorrento.

Because of the generosity of some anonymous Severn families, three students and a teacher will enjoy the trip all-expenses paid.

Severn School can be reached by calling 410-647-7700.

Holistic healing planned

An afternoon of holistic healing will be available to the community from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. March 14 at Unity by the Bay Church in the Severna Park Business Center (behind Severna Park Bowling Lanes) on Ritchie Highway.

Unity by the Bay is a nondenominational church under the leadership of the Rev. Judith Ballard.

The afternoon sessions, scheduled every other month, offer therapeutic and seated massage, Reiki, chiropractic, energy balancing, acupuncture, aromatherapy and more.

Participation is informal, and visitors are invited to try the therapies that interest them.

A donation of $10 per 15-minute session is suggested. Information: 410-544-7990.

Severna Park tackles graffiti

Graffiti is a continuing problem in Central County. This vandalism can be destructive and a serious threat to the welfare of a community.

Paul Grabarek, whose company, P. F. Grabarek & Associates, specializes in paint, sealers, waterproofing and cleaning, will discuss the problems associated with cleanup and repair of graffiti from 5: 30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Chartwell Country Club.

The event is sponsored by the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce. Information: 410-647- 3900.

Craft show coming up

The annual spring craft show is coming up at Old Mill High School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 20 in the school cafeteria.

Sponsored by the school's band booster club, the show offers an opportunity for artisans to sell their gift and decorating items for spring and Easter.

Only a few spaces are available for artisans, who should call for applications: 410-987-4095.
