Beautiful balloon signs were painted for us by Merry van Em- maril<. Mary Sodano and her fam- ily worked for days on end to help bring order to much of the rummage. Scouts from both Cabin John and Bannockburn hauled hun- dreds of boxes to the school and then set up the entire book so’~- tion of the sale. Pat Duff showed up on Saturday with her Calcu)ator in hand to work as she has for many years now as a cashier. Linda Wichmann got up out of a sick bed to do the same. Nancy Fisher helped for hours every day that last week. Frank McKinney brought us tables to use from the Gibson 5rove Church and then, in spite of the fact that a relative was getting married st the ~ time of the sale, h~ went ho,e and baked ginger- bread for our bakery table. that was manned by the Children’s Committee for Cabin John? The CCCJ created itself in February as several community children watched their parents prepars for the fundraiser. Tired of be- ing rummage sale orphans each Spring, they decided to create their own contributions to the fundraiser. Handicraft items were made, cookies baked, a qame devised, and signs made. And, by the end of the day, these children had made £46 for the 3~4 Year Old School! Very, very special thanks to Martha Patch (known on the big day as the “pocket lady”), Mary Ann and Ginny Haas, Amy Earp, Jennifer Burke, Mia Keefe and Alisha Morgan.

CORRECTION A story in our last issue inti- mated that Elizabeth Scull, our county ~epresenhative, had not been helpful in p~ovidinu infe– rmation about the now shoppin? center slated or the 79th street area. Ns. Scull ~,as never even contacted in regard to the ~hoppin~ center. She has always been helpful to o~,r community 3i. the past, and conti~:~es to be interested in our welfare. AN APPRECIATION As has been time case for the past several years, the success of the fundraisar for the 3&4 year old school has been dub to the generosity of e large num- ber of our friends in Cabin 3ohq. We expected that the ~ar- ents Of the young st6dents in the school would give of their time and their efforts to insure the financial integrity of the program and they shouldered that responsibility willingly and without complaint. What was not expected, and therefore cher- ished all the more, is the tremendous he-lp we get from those selfless and devoted friends in the community who volunteer year after year for no other reason than they third< it is the right thing to do. These people have been rightly sinsled out in the article that appears elsewhere on this page. Cabin John is the pleasant place it is because of them. ~;f all thos~ who worked hard and sacrificed, there were two who provided the motiva£ion and to- tal commitment that stimulated the rest of us. Katy Glakas, as Chairperson of the rummage sale, had what was probably the most difficult job, but carried i~ through with such aplomb that one would third< she had been doing it ell her life. She provided the atmosphere that made it difficult for the rest ofus to say no. And Cappio Mor- gan, with her enerNy, dedica- tion end uncanny ahility to stay on too of every detail, provided the structure that brousht meaning (as well as valuable corporate memory) to the ant.ire endeavor. ~!lth- out these two magnificent people, the fundraisor would not have been possible. –Joel Fischman EAT WELL AT CHURCI!! Mark your calenders for some of the best home cooking that Cabin John has to offer. 3L, ne 14 and July 12, the Church of AME Zion will sponsor a barb~- cue, from 1″I a.n. on, rair, or shine.

I~TTO0 YOUR DOS Recently an unusually large number of Cabin John dogs have been reported lost. What can be done about it? Dr. David loller, our neighbor- hood veterinarian, suggests that dog owners contact the Montgomery County SPCA about their tattoo clinic. Even tho- ugh Dr. Zoiler provides tattoo services, he recommends ~hat pet owners u~the County s~r- vice because the SPCA also reci- sters the dog, maki~9 identifit cation easier.
