Around South Hagerstown

April 21, 2008|By STACI CLIPP


It sure has been nice having chilly mornings knowing that by the afternoon it'll be warm.

Parents, remember there is a 2 1/2-hour-early dismissal Friday for Washington County schools, so make plans now.

Way to go, Patrick

Congratulations are in order for South Hagerstown High School sophomore Patrick Lynch.

Patrick was recently accepted into Washington County Tech High for the criminal justice program. Patrick wants to go into the forensics science field and this will help jump-start his career. Great job, Patrick. Keep up the great work.

Lions Club

Tuesday - Sight and Hearing Appreciation Luncheon. This is the meeting where the Hagerstown Lions Club gives recognition to the various businesses and individuals who provide the club with used eyeglasses for distribution in Third World countries, new eyeglasses and vision testing as well as used and reconditioned hearing aids for the benefit of needy Washington County residents.

Locust Point

The Nighborhoods 1st, Locust Point group had a very successful and productive trash cleanup day last Saturday.

Thirteen people showed up to help. Five of these were youth from Full Life Family Ministries (on Lee Street), who received certificates for their community service hours needed for school.

The group picked up about 20 bags of trash, along with some large items that were dumped in the area.

A special thanks to Wayne Durban, who followed the workers in his pickup truck to pick up the bags and take them to the Locust Point Market for pickup by the city.

Another special thanks to the Locust Point Market for allowing the group to use its lot as a central place to meet and organize, and also to leave its trash bags there for pickup.

The group's presence drew some attention from neighbors who are interested in what the group is doing. Hopefully, the group will see them at the next meeting.
