Ice cream deal to benefit firefighters

On Wednesday, April 30, Baskin-Robbins and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation are participating together to create an event to benefit local fire service organizations nationwide.

Baskin-Robbins stores across the country will hold 31-cent scoop night from 5 to 10 p.m. to show their commitment to the firefighting community.

A donation of $100,000 will be made to the foundation to honor America's firefighters. Baskin-Robbins shops will reduce the price of small scoops to 31 cents.

AARP chapter to hold picnic

Local Chapter 623 of AARPwill have its annual picnic on Tuesday, June 10, at noon at the Next Dimensions on Old National Pike (the regular meeting place.)


It is tradition that bingo is played following the meal. Each attending member is asked to bring at least one "bingo prize." The prize should be of $1 value and wrapped.

Picnic tickets cost $13 and can be obtained from Carrie Powell by calling 301-824-6120. The deadline to obtain tickets is June 4.

This event will be indoors, rain or shine.
