Happy New Year.
I hope 2019 is full of good health, love and success for you and your family.
This past year was one of athletic accomplishments for Reservoir High School student Emily Dorn. She excelled at soccer and basketball and enjoyed much success on the field and the court. She recently scored her 1,000th point and had a career-high 34 points in an overtime win to help the Lady Gators win the Catonsville Holiday Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 22.
Emily was presented with the game ball and named to the All-Tournament team along with teammate Tiffany Hooker.
The Savage Historical Society has already started planning meetings and events for the year. The first meeting will be on Monday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. Come to the Faith and Ministry Center at 9032 Baltimore Ave. in Savage for “Treasure’s One and All.”
You are invited to bring an item you cherish and share how you received it and why it is special to you. If Savage is your hometown, you are encouraged to bring something that represents the town.
Call 301-725-1241 if you have more questions or new more information.
If you are planning to have a new student at Reservoir High School in the 2019 -2020 school year, plan to attend the New Family Orientation on Thursday, Jan. 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Information about the school, academics, clubs and teams will be shared.

Looking ahead to February, Savage Mill will be the place for all the ladies on Feb. 7, from 4 to 8 p.m. for Girls Night Out. Stores will be having sales, giveaways, drawings and prizes and wine tastings.
Recently, I came upon an article titled “19 Thoughts for 2019.” While I can’t fit all 19 ideas in one article, I want to stress this one: Never forget the journey. It is important to plan for the future but don't neglect each moment. While it can be difficult sometimes to remember it, each of us is blessed. “It seems the happiest people are those that appreciate the good in their lives. There will be clouds and rain for all of us. But there will be sunshine and gentle breezes as well. Always take a moment to enjoy life, appreciate beauty and say please and thank you. Self-improvement involves what we do. Never forget why you do it.”
