I had the pleasure of attending a birthday lunch at Mulligan’s on Aug. 21. It is a lovely restaurant that overlooks the University of Maryland golf course. The management cannot advertise because it is considered part of the university. If you have never eaten at Mulligan’s, I highly recommend it for lunch and dinner.
Seniors’ safety session
The Prince George’s County Police Department is hosting a safety education program for senior citizens from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Prince George’s Plaza Community Center on Adelphi Road. The free information session will include personal and financial safety advice and health tips. A goal of the program is to encourage seniors to stay alert. For more information, call 301-864-1611.
Seniors, please be careful. There are so many scams out there via the telephone and people who approach you in parking lots. I was in the parking lot of the Giant on East West Highway, when a middle-age gentleman approached me. He said he was the manager of the local Burger King and that his car had just broke down. He asked me for funds to repair his car. I merely ignored him and just kept walking.
I visited our farmers’ market last Tuesday and purchased a few peaches and cantaloupes. Mmmm, they were so good. The market is open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Tuesday behind the BB&T Bank on Hamilton Street. I remember when I first moved to Hyattsville in 1968, and Charles Armentrout was mayor. It was his idea to bring a farmers’ market to our city, and it proved to be an excellent idea.
Hyattsville history: 1968
The Recreation Committee, chaired by Councilman Mallan Middleton, announced its intention to promote year-round activities for Hyattsville youth. The Citizens Advisory Committee, headed by Councilman Sylvan Deitz, named a subcommittee on annexation, chaired by George Hartman and Deitz. Discussions were held with the residents of Lewisdale and Green Meadows about becoming part of Hyattsville.
