Karen Rooker re­cently vis­ited Mount Rushmore with other VFW of­fi­cials and was among the flag-bear­ers for the CAFE (Cel­e­brat­ing Amer­ica’s Free­dom Event) cer­e­mony. She is the se­nior vice pres­i­dent for the Mary­land VFW Aux­il­iary.

Po­lice of­fi­cer Vena Mitchell and Code En­force­ment of­fi­cer Barry Wade were sworn in by Morn­ing­side Mayor Benn Cann dur­ing the Morn­ing­side Town Meet­ing on Sept. 20.

Sis­ter Leteki­dan has come from Eritrea to join the other Daugh­ters of St. Anne in St. Philip’s Par­ish. The con­vent is just be­hind my home and I en­joy the com­pany of these good sis­ters. I also read twice a week to the chil­dren at their day­care. Eritrea, by the way, is a small African coun­try on the Red Sea, just above Ethiopia.

Ap­plause

The Town of Morn­ing­side is among 37 award win­ners (out of 3,500) who’ll be hon­ored at the Ch­e­sa­peake Em­ploy­ers’ In­sur­ance Com­pany’s an­nual Safety Awards Break­fast in Tow­son on Oct. 27.

Events at VFW Post 9619

Wacky Wednes­day is hap­pen­ing ev­ery Wednes­day, with al­lyou-can-eat and a raf­fle. Hours are 1-3 p.m. and the cost is $9.

I didn’t know what hand danc­ing is and went to the In­ter­net: “Hand danc­ing is a form of swing dance that can be traced as far back as the 1920s, from Lindy Hop, to Jit­ter­bug and to the ‘50s when Wash­ing­ton, D.C., de­vel­oped its own ver­sion and named it Hand Dance.”
