I don’t know about y’all, but I’m getting pretty sick of the cold. Actually, I am literally sick from the cold. Today, at my desk, I couldn’t shake the chill so I finally succumbed and went home and climbed back into bed. It turned out to be a mild virus with a 100 degree temperature. Come on spring, I don’t know how much longer I can hold out!
The good news is that warmer weather can’t be far off because I just got my invitation to the 27th Annual Columbia Foundation Spring Party. This year, the open bar party catered by Clyde’s, will be held on Thursday, May 7th in the Spear Center at the General Growth Properties Building in Town Center. If you have never been it is the most unique party in Columbia. Everybody goes! If you live and work around here, you are bound to run into someone you know at this event. If you do both you'll see even more. When the weather is nice the party spills out on to the top floor terrace of the building overlooking Lake Kitamaqundi. If you need tickets call the foundation office at (410) 730-7840.
The following Friday, May 15th, is Howard County Bike to Work Day sponsored by the Howard County Government. Bike routes (cue sheets) have been laid out starting at The Columbia Mall and culminating at the following locations:
* Temporary Howard County Government Office Building (Stanford Blvd)* APL/Maple Lawn Farm/Southern District Police Station* King's Contrivance Village Center* Gateway -- Robert Fulton Drive* NSA* Clarksville -- West to Rte 32* Downtown Ellicott City* Catonsville -- UMBC via River Road & through Patapsco State Park* Elkridge to BWI industrial parks
Participants can drive to the Mall and leave their cars for the day or simply bike to rally which will begin at 7:00 AM. You can register here.
Now if I can only get through the rest of March!
