50 YEARS AGO
Queenstown will get a new Post Office building. That was the announcement Wednesday from Congressman Rogers C.B. Morton’s office. The congressman and interested citizens have worked on getting a new post office for three years.
An option has been obtained on the vacant lot on Town Square and Del Rhodes Avenue, directly across from the present post office.
Bids will be issued shortly for a 2,000-square-foot building with room in the rear for trucks and other vehicles. It will be built by private contractors and leased to the government.
•• • Recently appointed to a seven-member committee to review and revise the public school laws of the state was Queen Anne’s County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Harry C. Rhodes.
The committee, formed by the General Assembly of Maryland, will prepare a preliminary report for the legislature in Januar y 1967.
In asking Dr. Rhodes to serve on the committee, Gov. J. Millard Tawes announced that Dr. David W. Zimmerman, the deputy state superintendent of schools, would be the chairman. •• • Queen Anne’s County’s first Lutheran Church, the Galilee Evangelical Lutheran Church of Stevensville, held a groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday evening at the construction site in Harbor View.
Most of the money raised so far has been through the efforts of the Women’s Guild, who last year raised $2,100 through bake sales, rummage sales, and other projects.
The Harbor View ground was purchased about a year ago and construction is planned to begin in about two weeks with a hopedfor completion date around Christmas.
