ReStore to hold grand opening June 6

How many of us have wondered what was going to happen to the former Coca-Cola plant? It's been a landmark for years.

With the help of an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity of Washington County, a company called ReStore, 100 Charles St., will celebrate its grand opening Saturday, June 6, from 10 a.m. to noon.

The store will provide low-cost items for homeowners, including recycled building materials, appliances and other household items. Proceeds from sales will be used to build more houses for families in Washington County.

For more information, call Maureen Theriault at 301-790-8950.

Happy birthday

Last year, Mrs. Clara Broadus was surprised by her family and friends from across the country who helped her celebrate her 70th birthday in Maugansville.


While there is no big celebration this year, she is being remembered with loving and warm-hearted birthday wishes as she celebrates her 71st birthday Saturday. Happy birthday, Mrs. Clara. Enjoy your day, the rest of the year and may there be many more.

Hat rally

To all of the women who own a hat, whether it's a pillbox, a fancy lace cocktail, a down brim, a peacock or your regular "Sunday" best, come and don your bonnet during the morning service at Second Christian Church, 65 W. North Ave., on Sunday, June 7.

This is going to be fashion with a purpose for all of the ladies who wear their hats on this day. The women will walk down the aisle of the church to share a little bit of fashion with the parishioners.
