There are some remaining slots for an Aug. 14 bus trip to Dorney Park. Hagerstown youngsters may sign up now. More donations are needed to make this year's trip a success, said Clara Broadus of Hagerstown, one of the organizers of the second annual For Our Kids Sake trip. "We want to make sure that all the kids who want to go can go," Broadus said. She is urging businesses, clubs and individuals to contribute what they can so no child will be turned away. A bank account at Hagerstown Trust Co. has been set up in the name, For Our Kids Sake, Broadus said.

A bus trip to Dorney Park has been scheduled for Aug. 14 and Hagerstown youngsters are invited. Last year a similar trip drew three busloads of children who spent a day at Paramount King's Dominion in Richmond, Va. "This year we chose Dorney because it's closer and less expensive," said Clara Broadus of Hagerstown, one of the organizers of the second annual For Our Kids Sake trip. Fund-raisers and donations support the trip. Orgainzers hope this year to take four busloads to the Allentown, Pa., attraction.

Donations for the annual For Our Kids Sake bus trip to a major theme park are coming in slowly this year and Clara Broadus and her sister, Dot Bell, are getting a little worried. The deadline to have the money for a trip to Dorney Park in Allentown, Pa., is July 14, Broadus said. "We need at least $10,000 and we only have about $2,000 so far," she said. Plans still are on for busing nearly 200 Hagerstown-area youngsters to the park. "We're planning to fill four buses to Dorney on Aug. 2," Broadus said.

Despite the fact that most amusement parks have raised their prices and many bus lines have increased fares, Clara Broadus and her sister, Dottie Bell, are again planning an excursion this summer for underprivileged children. "We've chosen Dorney Park in Allentown, Pa., this year because the kids like the water park there," Broadus said. The trip is planned for Saturday, Aug. 8. Under the auspices of For Our Kids' Sake, three Atlantic Coast Trailways buses -- at a cost of $1,627 per bus -- will drive as many as 165 youngsters and chaperones to the park for the all-day excursion.

By JULIE E. GREENE Staff Writer When former Hagerstown Mayor Steven T. Sager is roasted Thursday night, his 12 years in office will be fair game. While it's probably unusual for a former mayor to be roasted, Sager is an unusual former mayor, said Fred K. Teeter Jr., executive vice president of the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce, which is hosting the event. "Twelve years in office is quite an accomplishment for any elected official these days, given the mood of the electorate," Teeter said.
