7-18  Cal Ripken World Series Host Families Wanted!

Ripken Stadium 873 Long Dr, Aberdeen, Time: TBD. The Cal Ripken World Series takes place from Friday, August 8 - Sunday, August 17, 2014. International teams would stay with host families from Thursday, August 7 to Monday, August 18 (they depart this day). The Cal Ripken World Series is an international youth baseball event. It is the only nationally televised event in Harford County. Being a Host Family for the Cal Ripken World Series is such an amazing experience. The Host Families are such an asset to making the World Series an amazing event. They really make this event memorable not only for the fans and staff for Ripken Baseball, but also to the boys. We really couldn't pull off this event without Host Families. One of the Dominican Host Families had such an amazing time that they shared their experience with me. I want to share their experience with you: "We are so psyched to be a Dominican host family again! And guess what? We are taking a trip to the Dominican this year in June to see our "boys!" We miss them so much and just have to go see them. We can, as a family, say that our experience last year with the Cal Ripken World Series was by far the best thing we have ever shared as a family. And now we can say that we have "family" in the Dominican Republic! I just wanted you to know how much it meant to us, and how meeting those amazing boys changed our lives. Even my husband, who was skeptical before it all started, tells everyone that it was the best time of his life". Host Families are essential to making this event happen. Requirements for Host Families Include: Hosting at least two players from an international team. International teams include Australia, Canada, Dominican Republic, Japan, Korea, Puerto Rico, New Zealand, and Mexico. Team Korea and Japan are already filled for 2014. Providing a place to sleep, and three meals per day for the players for the duration of their stay. Transporting the players to all scheduled practices and games, on time. A lot of people think this will be expensive to be a host family. We get grocery gift cards, gas cards, coupons, and discounts at local restaurants to help offset the cost of being a host family. We get laundry detergent for washing those baseball uniforms. No Price.

13  Good ‘Ole Fashion School Days

The Historical Society of Harford County, 143 N Main St, Bel Air, 6pm. Visitors will be given a rare glimpse of the old Bel Air Academy as seen through the eyes of several local plein aire artists. The Gordon Street school building, originally known as the Bel Air Academy and Graded School, dates from 1912 and still sparks nostalgic feelings from former students. For some the memories are of going to a “real public school,” one of the first in Harford County and for others, part of that ongoing tradition feeling that kids get from going “where their brothers and sisters used to go.” The building evolved into Harford County School Headquarters from 1950 - 2006, its outward appearance still reflects that “old school ambience” now to be embodied in paintings and sketches rendered by painters Joan Preston, Connie Beims, Janet Scarborough, Eleanor Mulholland, Virginia Streamer, Gwyn Howard, Beverly Browning, Loretta Di Loretto, and Stephen Howard. The group, charged by “sentimental graduate” John Sauers, was challenged to come up with “interpretations” of the building, something more than merely representational. These drawings and paintings will be on display and available for sale along with displays of memorabilia from the school including diplomas, pins, photos, athletic ribbons and the like. The event is free but donations to the building campaign are welcome. Light refreshments will be served. This is a wonderful opportunity to revisit an earlier time in Harford and meet with some of the graduates from this very special place. FREE. Please RSVP if you plan on attending by calling the Society at 410.838.7691 • Caterski@aol.com

Amanda McKerrow, former principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre (ABT) and her husband, John Gardner, a soloist with the company will be joining Harford Ballet Company’s August Workshop faculty. Amanda McKerrow has enjoyed a career as one of America’s acclaimed ballerinas. She has the honor of being the first American to receive a gold medal at the International Ballet Competition in Moscow in 1981. McKerrow has also been the recipient of numerous awards including the Princess Grace Foundation Dance Fellowship, the Deane Sherman Award of Excellence in the Field of Dance and the New York Woman Award for Dance. After studying with Mary Day at the Washington School of Ballet and dancing with the company for two years, McKerrow joined ABT under the direction of Mikhail Baryshnikov in 1982. She was appointed Soloist in 1983 and Principal Dancer in 1987. Her repertoire includes leading roles in Cinderella, Giselle, Romeo and Juliet, Manon, La Bayadere, Coppelia, Don Quixote, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, La Sylphide, The Nutcracker and The Dream.  She has also received acclaim for her performances in works by George Balanchine, Antony Tudor, Sir Frederick Ashton, Mark Morris, Jerome Robbins, Twyla Tharp, Clark Tippet, James Kudelka and Agnes DeMille. John Gardner began his ballet training with Gwen Ashton in Lafayette, Louisiana, and subsequently trained at the National Academy of Arts in Champaign, Illinois under the direction of Michael Maule. At the age of sixteen, Gardner received a scholarship to the American Ballet Theatre School and joined the second company of ABT shortly after. In 1978 he became a member of the main company of ABT and was promoted to soloist in 1984. Gardner’s repertoire with ABT includes a wide range of soloist and principal roles. His extensive range in style allowed him the opportunity to work with many great choreographers including Antony Tudor, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins and Twyla Tharp. In 1991, he joined Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak dance project where he was able to work closely with world-renowned modern choreographers Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Martha Graham, Mark Morris and Lar Lubovitch. During his time with the White Oaks Dance Project, Gardner created numerous roles and toured throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. Harford Ballet Company's professional ballet intensive is designed for the serious professional or pre-professional dance student at an intermediate to advanced level of training. The workshop will include daily Ballet technique and Pointe/Pre-Pointe or Variations and Partnering classes.  The program will improve a student's technique while increasing their strength and flexibility to prepare them for their upcoming dance season.
