For some people, the term "bonanza" calls to mind a 1960s TV series. But many Hagerstown area residents say "bonanza" means something quite different to them - namely, a night out for some fun and a chance to win cash. The Beaver Creek Lions Club provided such a night Saturday, March 4, at Hagerstown Elks Lodge 378 on Robinwood Drive. Event tickets cost $35 for two people, covering dinner, drinks and a chance to win a grand prize of $1,000. Anne Martin, secretary of Beaver Creek Lions Club, said Saturday's event was the club's 15th bonanza.

If you are trekking around in this heat, I salute you. I hope to be somewhere air-conditioned, but The Herald-Mail is serving up some motivation for intrepid souls to venture outside. The newspaper's 11th annual Landmarks Contest kicked off July 29, and the grand prize is $500. It's a contest and a sort of unstructured fitness program. The contest goes like this: Ten photographic clues were printed in last Sunday's paper along with an entry blank. The clues are close-up images of distinct parts of buildings, structures, parking lots and athletic fields or courts.
