Congratulations to all the students who participated in 13th annual Chess Tournament!

On Saturday, April 27th, we held our 13th Annual Chess Tournament with the Black Student Achievement Program(BSAP) at the Saturday Math Academy at Oakland Mill High School.  82 children from elementary, middle and high schools in Howard County participated in the event.

There was stiff competition and many tight matches.  Everyone had a good time and especially enjoyed the awarding of trophies, medals and pizza…or should we say the eating of pizza at the Pizza Party held afterwards.

The Council has been partnering with the BSAP for over 13 Years in teaching children Chess and Critical Thinking, and have tutored around 150 children this year.

Special thanks to Elders Wardell Lindsay and Harvey Moran for their Leadership of the Chess Program and to Harriet Lee for the volunteers that made the year a success.

Thank you for joining us at Bob Evans!

On May 1st from 10am-8pm, The Council of Elders held a fundraiser to benefit our programs and activities at three Maryland area Bob Evans restaurants in our community:


Bob Evans, 8325 Benson Drive, Columbia, MD
Bob Evans, 4900 Beaver Run Way, Ellicott City, MD
Bob Evans, 3361 Corridor Market Place, Laurel, MD

We just wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You”, for answering the call and coming out to support us. Even being one of the last ones to show up at the Benson Drive location (around 7:45pm), we still managed to see many of you there with your families. It was great getting the chance to speak with so many of you who share our vision for the black students and families in our community.

Thank you for your support!!!
