That Holiday Glow

Westminster plugs into the season with first-ever Holiday Electric Parade

By Katie V. Jones Posted 11/22/09



On the evening of Nov. 28, the streets of Westminster will be aglow to greet the holiday season as some 50 floats — each with more than 2,000 lights — travel down Main Street as part of the city's first-ever "Holiday Electric Parade."

The parade is expanding on the Westminster tradition of hosting a Christmas parade, followed by a tree lighting.

The idea of adding the element of an "electric light parade" had been suggested by Eileen Gist, a volunteer, for years, and she's thrilled to see it come to light.
"They call me the 'electric chair,' " Gist laughed.

[…]

Watching Lori Graham, a parade organizer, create lighted lamp posts out of bird feeders for a float that will carry Mayor Kevin Utz and the Common Council…

[…]

From midday to night, Nov. 28 will feature a variety of events, starting with a children's carnival in the parking lot off Locust Lane at 1 p.m., and a showing of Laurel and Hardy movies at the Carroll Arts Center at 2:30 p.m.

The Wishbone Mile benefit run will be held at 4:45 p.m., and the Holiday Electric Light Parade will begin at 5 p.m., starting at Pennsylvania Avenue and proceeding down Main Street to Longwell Avenue.

The tree lighting will be held at the conclusion of the parade, at Locust Lane. From there, children and their families are invited to the Westminster Family Fitness Center on Longwell, where the city's Recreation and Parks Department will host "Santa's Treat," a party for children.

Many local businesses will also stay open late for "Starlight Shopping."  http://www.explorecarroll.com/news/3643/glow/

I can’t quite tell as to when this Chase and Sanborn coffee ad ran, but I have studied it and I wonder why it is that they do not use it today.

Election Day Food Drive to support Carroll County Food Sunday


Election Day Food Drive to support Carroll County Food Sunday


http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2010/10/election-day-food-drive-to-support.html



  

PRESS RELEASE October 25, 2010

For Immediate Release
Contact: Martin Radinsky 443-520-7750

Westminster, MD - October 25, 2010 –

This election, Carroll County is going to continue a unique tradition started with the November 2008 election.

Martin Radinsky, Frank Baylor, Kelly Buie, Bob Mitchell, David and Laura O’Callaghan have once again organized the election day food drive during the upcoming Maryland General Election on November 2, 2010 to support Carroll County Food Sunday.

Our goal is, with volunteer support, to have staffed collection boxes at the polling places, respecting all electioneering laws.

The community service event will be conducted in a non-partisan fashion and volunteers will be asked not to engage in political activity while collecting for Carroll County Food Sunday.  We welcome the support from all organizations, political clubs, candidates, and political parties in helping to feed our neighbors in need in Carroll County.

Radinsky said that in November 2008, Carroll County voters filled seven 150-cubic foot containers with donated food.

“We want to build (the food collection effort) into a Carroll County habit for elections in the future,” said Radinsky.  “When and where else in Carroll County are you going to get 50,000 (people) in one place…?  If only half of all the voters in Carroll County brought one can of food each; that’s 25,000 cans of food….”

Radinsky said that every candidate with whom he has spoken has been very supportive of the Carroll County voter food drive.  Hopefully all the candidates will take the opportunity to spread the word.

Election Day is a wonderful day to celebrate being an American.  Bringing along a can of food will help make sure that no one in our community goes hungry. 

Should you wish to volunteer to assist in this community service project please email Martin Radinsky at maradinsky@comcast.net or call 443-520-7750.

Carroll County Food Sunday will offer "Community Service Hours" for any student wishing to volunteer their time.

Carroll County Food Sunday distributes from the following county sites - WESTMINSTER: from 10 to 11:15 am and 1 to 2:15 pm, Tuesday through Thursday, and 9 am to 11:30 am, Saturday at 10 Distillery Drive (ground floor). TANEYTOWN: from 9:30 to 11:15 am, Thursday at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, 44 Frederick Street. SYKESVILLE: from 10 am to noon, Wednesday at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Freedom Avenue and Liberty Roads. This organization is run by volunteers, and is always in need of additional volunteer help. Donations of money and/or food are gladly accepted.

Hunger, election, canned food, Carroll County

DAYHOFF: Vote against local hunger by bringing canned goods to the polls

DAYHOFF: Vote against local hunger by bringing canned goods to the polls

EAGLE ARCHIVE

By Kevin Dayhoff

... on Nov. 2, along with your vote, please bring along a can of beans, or soup -- or even marinated asparagus spears -- to take along with you to the polls.

This election, Carroll County is going to continue a unique tradition started with the November 2008 election.
It's a humanitarian effort of neighbor helping neighbor that, to the best of my knowledge, is a one-of-a-kind initiative in the nation.
One of the things that make Carroll County special is that no matter how many changes occur over the years, we always maintain our priorities by looking out for one another.
This year, Martin Radinsky, Frank Baylor, Kelly Buie, Bob Mitchell, David and Laura O'Callaghan have again organized the Election Day food drive to support Carroll County Food Sunday. Volunteers will beat polling places throughout the county to collect the nonperishable canned goods.
Last week, Radinsky said that in November 2008, Carroll County voters filled seven 150-cubic foot containers with donated food. In an interview with Radinsky back in 2008, he said he wanted "to build (the food collection effort) into a Carroll County habit for elections in the future."

Corn Maze to Open in Westminster

Get lost this fall at the 2010 Carroll County Agriculture Center corn maze.

Authorities have identified the crop circles found outside of Westminster as the work of Carroll County Ag Center volunteers and not the work of space aliens.
~~~~~~

Beginning Friday, September 10, 2010, the Ag Center will feature over 2 miles of trails creatively carved out of acres of seven-foot tall corn just outside of Westminster.

It has been six years since a maze was artfully carved into the crop fields at the Ag Center.  In 2004, over 3,300 folks visited.

The theme of this year’s maze is a celebration of Carroll County’s agricultural heritage.  A cornucopia of grapes, an apple, a banana, pumpkin, and squash have carefully been carved into the field for hours of family fun.

Come test your navigational skills.  Get off the couch, turn off the TV, get out of the house and enjoy the fresh air and support a worthy cause, the Carroll County Agriculture Center, home of the nationally known Carroll County 4-H and FFA Fair.

Public hours are Friday and Saturday nights from 5 PM to 9 PM and Sunday afternoons from 2 PM to 6 PM.  The maze will be open weekends until October 31, 2010 and will feature a haunted maze on October 29th and 30th, 2010.

Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for ages 3 to 12.  Group prices and times are available, call 410 848-6704.

For more information and directions, call the Agriculture Center at 410 848-6704; or go to www.ccag.biz or click on http://tinyurl.com/2fxtxhn

This event is to benefit the CARROLL COUNTY AGRICULTURE CENTER, Inc.  The Carroll County Agriculture Center is the site of the 50,000 square foot Danele Shipley Memorial Arena, as well as numerous other meeting facilities, function and banquet rooms and outdoor facilities.  Located in central Carroll County, the Agriculture Center also helps meet the needs of our neighbors in Baltimore, Washington D.C., and southern Pennsylvania.  The facilities are designed to host a wide variety of events from livestock shows to entertainment events, trade shows and exhibits.  The Agriculture Center is also the permanent home of the Carroll County 4H & FFA Fair.

Innovative things to with a newspaper motif….



Posted on Tue, 5 Oct 2010 by kim9 Comments

London-based interior stylist Twig Hutchinson has created some of the most memorable spaces that I've come across since Jo and I started this blog. The last photo (after the jump) has been a favourite of mine for ages and I thought it deserved a second posting. (See our first post of her work here). Twig emailed us to let us know she has updated her website so go have a peek. In the meantime, below are some magical and beautifully styled spaces that we haven't blogged before. So lovely!!! (Oh - I HAD to add the second-last photo. Guess why. :) )
