FREDERICK, Md. - Frederick Community College will have a 40th anniversary and presidential retirement celebration honoring Lee John Betts from 4 to 8 p.m. today at the college's field house.
U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett, R-Md., and state Sen. John W. Derr are expected to participate in the program.
Members of Soroptimist International of Hagerstown on Monday will join Soroptimists worldwide in a campaign to educate people about domestic abuse.
Group members will distribute purple cards with information about domestic abuse in the restrooms and eating areas of local workplaces.
Purple is the color associated with domestic violence.
"The workplace is the ideal place to help women facing domestic violence because it's where these women spend at least eight hours a day away from their abusers," said Marilyn Smith, president of the Hagerstown club. "By distributing these cards, we will be taking the first step in creating awareness of this important issue."
