It seems we're always celebrating some child's birthday, be it in our family, at church or at school. My children love the gift-buying process. I tell them to select something they would like and to imagine how much fun their friends will have playing with it. The day of the party, they wake up asking how much longer it will be until we can go. The excitement continues to build as we arrive at the festivities. The children go off together, and the adults mingle. A child's birthday party seems to bring out the best of that creativity gene all parents suddenly develop when they are first handed a bundle of joy. Some parents opt for at-home parties, others choose child-friendly restaurants, play places designed expressly for this purpose, or other activity-based businesses.

When asked, most 7-year-old boys would probably identify a long list of items they would like to receive as birthday presents. That list might include video games, Matchbox cars, LEGOs or professional sports apparel.   Connor Rohm of Greencastle, Pa., put together a very different list for his birthday. Instead of gifts, he asked his friends to make donations to one of his favorite places, the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County. “It was his idea, so instead of making a wish list of birthday presents, we asked his friends and their families to make donations to the Boys & Girls Club,” said Julie Rohm, Connor's mother and a volunteer at the club.

BOONSBORO -- With patriotic music in the air and hot dogs on the grill, it was time to have a birthday party for America on Friday. Hundreds of people spread out across Boonsboro's Shafer Memorial Park for the town's annual Independence Day Celebration. Dozens of blankets and lawn chairs covered the field, as spectators scoped out prime spots for the after-dusk fireworks show. Before the sun set, there was plenty of time for relaxing, socializing and even napping while people waited.

Picture yourself with your favorite band playing at your birthday party. Now imagine that all you had to do was message them on their MySpace page, and they would come to your house to play for you, just because you said that their music was inspiring. Wouldn't that be awesome? That's what happened to one fan of Shiny Toy Guns. According to a news story I heard, a girl said that she sent a message to the new band via MySpace, and the next day, they traveled across the country to play on her front porch at a party she was having.

Unless it's a birthday party, don't surprise your boss, especially if he or she is an elected official. It's a lesson we've seen government staffers learn repeatedly, and the latest to get educated in that way was Karen Luther, Washington County's purchasing agent. During the commissioners' April 20 meeting, Luther got them to approve a $2.8 million contract to bring their payroll and other computer systems into Year 2000 compliance. Though the package was reviewed by a staff committee and a consultant, Commissioner John Schnebly voted against it, saying he wanted cost estimates from the six other proposals.

marlob@herald-mail.com Not one for a lot of hoopla, Mary Shank thought she was going to observe her 103rd birthday quietly Thursday evening at the Hagerstown Elks Lodge No. 378 Bargain Bingo night. But she had to "work" for her cake and ice cream - she called the first bingo game for the room full of players, friends and family. "I come here once a week to play," Mary said. "And I also play in Clear Spring - they had a party for me there, too, last weekend. " Mary insists she plays bingo strictly for fun but she did win a $500 prize recently in Clear Spring.
