Ellie’s Bake Sale is back following a two year break.
Ellie Feaga is hosting her community fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. at 15211 Frederick Road. Delicious baked goods, a chili cook-off and some interesting raffles will raise money for Labs for Liberty, the charity Ellie chose for this year.
Labs for Liberty is an organization that raises and trains Labrador retrievers to help veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or physical impairments. A service dog is given to the veteran after being trained to meet the needs of that veteran. Veterans from all generations and conflicts are eligible. Once again, Ellie, a junior at Glenelg High School, is “Making a difference one cupcake at a time.”
At the end of September, the Glenwood Lions Club donated copies of “In Carrie’s Footprints – The Long Walk of Warren Dorsey” to five local schools. This book, about Warren Dorsey’s family, tells the story of an African American family living in the Sykesville area early in the 20th century. The book is written by Jack McBride White, a resident of Sykesville, with the collaboration of Dorsey, who will turn 98 in November.
In January of 2018, White and Dorsey gave a talk to the Lions Club about the book, inspiring the Lions to purchase copies for the local middle and high schools. Books were donated to Glenelg and Marriotts Ridge high schools and Folly Quarter, Glenwood and Mount View middle schools. The Lions want the students to be able to learn about the history and evolution of equal educational opportunities in Western Howard County.
