The new bank in Lutherville donated $700 to offset the cost of the festival.
CFG Community Bank in Lutherville donated $700 to Lutherville Laboratory Elementary School for its annual Fall Family Funfest, off setting costs for money that will be reinvested into extracurricular activities for its students. CFG representatives reached out to Lutherville Lab to kick-start the partnership after the Maryland-based community bank relocated from its Towson location in May. The bank presented the school with a check earlier this week. “We knew that because of the economy and hard times of government funding schools, small businesses and banks need to step up to supplement funding," Michael McClung, CFG's vice president of branches, said. "The next thing was just to start a partnership with the PTA and the school to fund …

Cooper Beeson exceeded his goal in raising money for the homeless across Baltimore County.
Lutherville boy Cooper Beeson smashed his goal of raising $1,000 for Baltimore County's homeless population over the weekend with his adorable 8-year-old smile and refreshing lemonade. Patch has followed Cooper's plans to open a lemonade stand to benefit the homeless since he announced his intentions in July. Cooper's mother Diana said her son raised just shy of $1,700 as of Monday, with the promise of more checks on the way.

Susan Gelston Mink continued her trip down memory lane, driving me through the streets of her old Lutherville neighborhood.
Editor's Note: You can read Part I of this exclusive Then & Now series here. Oak Grove is haunted. All good, old houses should be haunted, don’t you think? The oldest house in Lutherville is no exception. Susan Gelston Mink told me she doesn’t know who the ghost is, but the ghost must have been old. She was wearing old-fashioned clothes when Mink’s mother saw her, sometime in the early 1950s. Mink spent the early part of her childhood growing up at Oak Grove, from age 3 until age 9, and nothing about it spooked her except the occasional bat that made its way inside. But both her parents saw, and heard, something different. “My mother woke up in her bedroom to see a woman in old-fashioned clothes standing near her bed. She said she wasn't …

The quilts will be given to fallen firefighter Mark Falkenhan’s widow and children.
The first-grade classes at Lutherville Laboratory presented quilts they made for the family of fallen firefighter/paramedic Mark Falkenhan to the Lutherville Volunteer Fire Department this morning. Read about the quilt-making project here. Third Lt. David Wilmot, whose son Samuel is a first-grader at Lutherville, was on hand to receive the quilts on behalf of the Falkenhan family. Wilmot said to the children, “What makes these quilts so special is that anyone can buy a quilt at the store, but when a quilt is made by someone special, with heart and with love, by all of you guys, you can’t buy these quilts in the store. These are one of a kind.” The quilts were made from artwork that the children drew with crayon directly onto cotton …

Whiz Kid is a weekly column highlighting a high-achieving, extra special or particularly interesting local youngster.
For most kids' eighth birthday, the party is a chance to rake in the goods. Barbies, Legos and the Goosebumps books are popular gifts when you’re 8. So what could possibly make an 8-year-old turn down such a haul? Abby Norr saw her birthday as a unique opportunity to help animals in need. This winter, Abby, a third-grader at Lutherville Laboratory Elementary, asked only for donations to an animal shelter for her birthday. “Abby's invitation stated that in lieu of gifts, she was collecting donations for Defenders of Animal Rights (DOAR), our favorite shelter,” said Abby’s mom, Andrea Norr of Timonium. Three of the Norr family’s four cats had been adopted from DOAR, and Abby would love to adopt all the rest. Instead, she contented herself …
