On June 23, 2001, the Howard County Marine Corps League was born when 21 motivated Marines were awarded a charter by the Department of Maryland Commandant, thus making the Detachment 1084 official. Our mission is to join together in camaraderie and fellowship for the purpose of preserving the traditions and promoting the interests of the United States Marine Corps.
On June 23, 2016, our detachment, renamed the SSgt Karl G. Taylor, Sr. (Howard County) Detachment 1084, will celebrate its 15 year anniversary. Our namesake, SSgt Karl G. Taylor, Sr. was a Marine from Laurel, Howard County, Maryland who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor (our nation's highest military honor) for heroism in the Vietnam War.
Over the last 15 years, we have organized and participated in numerous activities to support our mission and the community.
• Sponsored a Patriotism Essay.
• Awarded several thousand dollars in scholarships to outstanding Howard County graduates.
• Provided emotional support to wounded Marines in the hospital.
• Picked up hundreds of bags of trash as part of the Adopt-a-Highway Program.
• Volunteered in the Toys-for-Tots Program.
• Attended Marine Corps birthday ball celebrations.
• Provided a color guard to march in various local parades.
• Organized golf tournaments.
• Participated at various local town festivals.
• Donated hundreds of dollars and material goods to the Marines Helping Marines Program.
• Provided free lunches to veterans on Veterans Day.
Our detachment meets on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 1930 (7:30pm) at the Yingling-Ridgely Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Auxiliary Post 7472 located at 4225 VFW Lane, Ellicott City, Maryland 21043. We are always looking for new members. For more information, see
CHUCK AARON, ALLEN ALEXOPULOS, MAX CROWNOVER AND JIM OLIVER PRESENT “ELEGANT WOODTURNINGS” AT THEIR JUNE 2016 ART SHOW AT HORSESPIRIT ARTS GALLERY
Maryland Woodturning Artists Chuck Aaron, Allen Alexopulos, Max Crownover and Jim Oliver have an affinity for turning locally found wood - recovered from downed trees that would otherwise be landfilled or used as firewood – into beautiful artifacts.
Their art show will run from 12 June to 23 June 2016 at HorseSpirit Arts Gallery, 8090 Main Street, Ellicott City, MD 21043 with the opening reception on Sunday, 12 June from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
Allen Alexopulos - Master Woodturner - has been creating custom woodturning art in his studio in Annapolis, Maryland since 2001. Allen's artistic goal is to highlight as much of the natural figure, texture and color from the wood as possible. Simple shapes combined with graceful curvatures amplify the beauty of his turnings. Although Allen has explored many areas of woodturning, his principal repertoire includes natural edged vessels, lidded boxes with ornate finials, hollow forms and formal vessels.
Chuck Aaron is an accomplished woodturner from Columbia, Maryland who creates beautiful bowls, hand-crafted pens and other wooden art. Chuck’s art allows him to create physical objects that express the beauty he perceives in the world around him. His woodturning engenders objects that show the beauty of color and wood grain in a way that is both visual and tactile.
Max Crownover creates art using both wood and metal in his studio in Columbia, Maryland. He has loved working with wood for as long as he can remember and has done a variety of woodworking, including building and refinishing furniture. Max creates bowls, wall hangings and other items.
Jim Oliver – an accomplished Woodturner - is a resident of Oella, Maryland (the historic portion of Ellicott City lying east of the Patapsco River). Jim began woodturning after his retirement from the Agricultural Research Service in 2004. As a retired chemist, Jim still enjoys experimenting, and investigating new stains and wood conditioners that may permit utilization of spalted and highly figured woods that would otherwise be unsuitable for use.
HorseSpirit Arts Gallery is a privately owned gallery with an eclectic, up-lifting collection of the original creations of over 40 local artists whose work includes: Paintings, Sculpture, Mixed Media, Photography, Glass & Mosaics, Jewelry, Ceramics, Woodturning, and Fiber & Wearable Art.
Hours are Wednesday to Monday (closed Tuesday) from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm (open later on weekends). For more information, please contact the Gallery’s Owner/Curator - Robin Holliday directly at (410) 782-5677 or the Gallery at (410) 461-3505 or email HorseSpiritArts@verizon.net.
