An item in yesterday's Neighbors section on the Holiday Craft and Doll House Miniature Show set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at Arundel Junior High School contained erroneous information.

Tables at the show can be rented for $15. For more information, call 672-3539 or 674- 5644.

Junior Girl Scout Troop 227 went camping the weekend of Oct. 26 at Woodlands Girls Scout Camp in Annapolis. Approximately 140 girls, leaders and parents participated in the encampment.

Activities for the weekend included sleeping in tents, cooking with "Hobo Ovens" (empty 5-pound cans) and "Buddy Burners" (tuna cans filled with corrugated cardboard and wax), African Tie Dyeing on T-shirts and plenty more.

Troop 227 also recently helped the Christians Assistance Program prepare 275 Thanksgiving baskets. The girls have been helping CAP prepare baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas for several years.

For another service project, the troop will be sending Christmas cards and letters to U.S. military personnel in Saudi Arabia.

Plus, in conjunction with all the Girl Scouts of Community 37, the troop is saving Del Monte and Slim Fast labels to earn scouting and camping equipment. If you use these products, please remove the label and give them to a girl scout.

Troop 227 members are selling Entertainment '91 books for the Maryland/District of Columbia, Baltimore and Northern Virginia areas to help defray the cost of troop activities and service projects.

Coupons in the books can be used for restaurants, dinner theaters, fast-food places, sporting events, movies, car rentals, hotel accommodations and many other activities.

The Entertainment '91 books make excellent gifts. To purchase a book, call Melanie Owen at 621-7934 or 674-8363 or Grace Matheny at 551-9007.

The Fort Meade Officer's Wive's Club is accepting reservations for a Wednesday, Jan. 2, matinee performance of "Grand Hotel," a Tony Award-winning musical starring Tommy Tune at the Kennedy Opera House in Washington, D.C.

This opulent Broadway hit is the latest incarnation of the Vicki Baum novel of Berlin life in 1928, best remembered as the classic 1932 film starring Greta Garbo and John Barrymore.

The beautiful ballerina who falls in love with the handsome baron-turned-cat-burglar; the blond typist willing to do anything to be a film star; the dying accountant who spends his last days searching for friendship in this magnificent place -- these are just a few of the many memorable characters who check into the Grand Hotel.

The $35 cost includes a bus ride to and from the opera house and orchestra seats. The bus will leave the Fort Meade Officer's Club at 3 p.m. For reservations, call Betty Juba at 721-1494 or Helen McCormack at 721-1736.

The club also is accepting reservations for a Sunday, Feb. 10 performance of "Shenandoah" at the Towsontowne Dinner Theatre. An evening with this old-fashioned, tuneful charmer for the entire family costs $35 and includes the bus trip, dinner, show and gratuity.

The bus will leave Fort Meade's Officers' Club at 3 p.m. For reservations, call Betty Juba at 721-1494 or Helen McCormack at 721-1736.
