Belle Grove Square Holiday House tour in Westminster slated for Dec. 11, 2010 3-8 p.m.

DAYHOFF: Touring history, and holiday finery, at Belle Grove Square

Eagle Archive By Kevin Dayhoff


At the last meeting of the Westminster mayor and Common Council, two venerable and historic Westminster neighborhoods were placed under zoning protections in an effort to preserve and protect them for future generations. (See page 5. http://www.explorecarroll.com/news/4960/westminster-officials-adopt-zoning-changes-willis-street-belle-grove/)

The two neighborhoods involved in the adopted zoning changes, Belle Grove Square and Willis Street, are steeped in history and tradition in Westminster.

The origins of Belle Grove Square date back to 1866…


Fast-forwarding, folks will have the opportunity to tour the historic Belle Grove Square neighborhood Dec. 11, 3-8 p.m., when the community opens its doors for the Westminster Historic District Commission's biannual Historic Holiday House Tour.

The last time the community had the opportunity to celebrate its historic homes was on the occasion of the first holiday house tour in 1996. Bruce DeVault, the president of the neighborhood association, is excited about the tour. He said it'll be a unique opportunity to see inside some of Westminster's hidden treasures.

The tour "is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the history of our town," said Melissa Hynes, Westminster's comprehensive planner.

Tickets -- $10 in advance; $12 at the door -- are on sale at the city administrative offices, City Hall, the Historical Society, Carroll Arts Center and the Hickory Stick.

I was in Phoenix, Ariz., last week for a reporters' conference, Capitolbeat, and the ironies were in abundance...

It was on the date of my visit, Nov. 12, 1954, that Ellis Island, the gateway to the United States and the symbol of American the immigrant experience, closed after more than 12 million immigrants passed through its gates since opening in 1892...

It should be noted that Congress hasn't formally acted on the issue since the last immigration reform measures were passed in 1986 -- a point not lost on New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson when he addressed the Capitolbeat conference....

George D. Sirinakis, 81, of Westminster, MD

George D. Sirinakis, 81, of WestminsterMD

Wednesday, November 3 2010

Sirinakis, George D. passed away last Wednesday.  Pritts Funeral Home published the following obituary on its website, http://www.prittsfuneralhome.com/:

George Dimitrios Sirinakis, 81, of Westminster, died Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at home.

Born on October 4, 1929 in SkyrosGreece, he was the son of the late Dimitrios George and Kyparissia Efthasiou Sirinakis. He was married for 52 years to Zoe A. Sirinakis.

Mr. Sirinakis arrived at the port of Baltimore as a Greek Merchant Marine in October 1957. At that time he was introduced to his wife by a cousin living in Baltimore. After finishing his tour of duty he returned in May 1958 and was married in June of that same year.

In 1959, he and his wife bought Harry’s Lunch from her parents, Aristidis “Harry” and Vasiliki Amprazis.

In July 1976 they moved the restaurant to its present location on Main StreetWestminster.

They retired in 1987 and sold the business to their son Harry in 1990; today it is known as Harry’s Main Street Grille. Mr. and Mrs. Sirinakis were also the owners of Harry’s Sub Shop from 1976-2010.

With only an elementary school education, he learned English while settling in Westminster, Mr. Sirinakis became a pillar in the local business community. He was a past member of The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA); a member of the Elks Lodge #2277 and the Moose Lodge.

He belonged to Saints Peter and Paul Greek Orthodox Church in Frederick, the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation in Baltimore and St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Ocean CityMD.

Mr. Sirinakis enjoyed traveling, especially to Skyros, the island in Greece where he grew up. He enjoyed many vacations with his family at their home in Ocean City. He also enjoyed gardening. His deepest passion, however, was always his family.

Surviving him besides his wife Zoe are sons and daughter-in-laws James G. and Dawn Sirinakis of Crownsville; A. Harry and Rebecca Sirinakis of Westminster; a daughter Kyparissia Sirinakis of Bethesda; grandchildren Andrew Essman, and Alexandra, Aristidis, Nicholas and Michael Sirinakis; and a brother Dimitrios G. Sirinakis of Sykesville.

He was predeceased by a sister, Efrosini Sarris.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, from 5-7 PM and Sunday from 1-4 PM at Pritts Funeral Home and Chapel, 412 Washington RoadWestminster.

Services will be held on Monday, November 8th at the funeral home chapel with Father Anastasios Kousoulas officiating. Eulogy begins at 12:30 PM, a Greek Orthodox funeral service at 1 PM and interment will be in Westminster Cemetery immediately following the service.

Memorial contributions can be made to Carroll Hospice, 292 Stoner AvenueWestminsterMaryland 21157; Saints Peter and Paul Greek Orthodox Church, 920 West 7th St. FrederickMaryland 21701; or National Stroke Association,www.stroke.org.

John Schaeffer 82 was among men of finance - by Kevin Dayhoff


John Schaeffer 82 was among men of finance

In http://www.explorecarroll.com/ please find two pieces I wrote about the late John Schaeffer of Westminster Bank and Trust Company.

Since these two tributes about Mr. Schaeffer appeared in the paper, many folks have come forward with stories about Mr. Schaeffer’s great mind for business, his service to his community and his extraordinary sense of customer service.

Perhaps one of the best among many was the story of the Mom with four children who had a problem with her checking account.  Mr. Schaeffer, the president of bank the mind you, found the problem and because the Mom could not get back to the bank because she was busy with her children; Mr. Schaeffer hand delivered the paperwork and her checkbook to her house.

DAYHOFF:John Schaeffer 82 was among men of finance who helped shape Westminster.  Eagle Archives.  By Kevin Dayhoff

The Oct. 31 death of John C. Schaeffer, 82, of Westminster, caused many older Carroll County residents to reminisce nostalgically about days long gone by.

Schaeffer was a well-respected country banker, who knew the business of finance and served his community steadfastly for many years.

Moreover, he was friendly, and always had time to talk with anyone, no matter his or her position or station in life.

A glimpse into the life and times of Schaeffer is also a history lesson in banking in Carroll County, and a study of the legacy of distinguished community leadership for over a half-a-century.
