Busy Saturday this weekend

   You can always count on the months of May and October to be busy months for organizational events.  This Saturday seems to be one of those days with two major events in Howard County.  The Columbia Association is holding an open house at its new location on Hillside Court in Columbia.  This is near the MVA Emissions Testing location.  Here is the info on this event:

   "Columbia Association will be offering tours of sections of its new headquarters building, including a special exhibit on display at Columbia Archives.  CA’s Open House will take place on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 6310 Hillside Court, located off Stevens Forest Road near the county vehicle emissions inspection station. Four tours will be offered during the day at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.  Refreshments and giveaways will be available throughout the day. In addition, the first 100 CA members to come to the Open House will receive a free guest pass on their account. Anyone who signs up for a new annual CA membership during the Open House will receive one free month."
