Browse and buy at the AARP's May Fair tomorrow


May 26, 1992|By Rosalie M. Falter

The Linthicum-Ferndale column in yesterday's paper listed the wrong date for the removal of trash containers from the Linthicum Park parking lot. The Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association will remove the containers at 8 a.m. Friday.

Tomorrow is the day for the annual May Fair, sponsored by the American Association of Retired Persons Chapter 3850, at St. Christopher's Church, Marydel and Sweetser Roads in Linthicum.

Browse and buy from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Choose from a variety of items, such as jewelry, plants, candy and baked goods, including pies, cakes, loaf bread and rolls. Have an important card laminated, look for something special on the treasures table and find a handmade craft, woodwork, crochet or embroidery piece. Country and Christmas crafts also will be for sale.


While there you can purchase a cold platter lunch for $3.50, including a beverage and a dessert. Handmade afghans and dinner for two at Snyder's Willow Grove will be raffled off too, so don't forget to take a chance.

The fair will take place, rain or shine. All proceeds will benefit community projects.

* Doug Keegan, a local pianist and an Andover High School alumnus, will perform at a Performing Arts Association of Linthicum concert next season.

Keegan, a talented and very popular rising young star, is in his second year of study at the Warsaw Conservatory inn Poland. He will return to the states in February for a short tour and will be one of the highlights of PAAL's season.

Keegan's concert was the fifth announced by PAAL organizers. Other concerts are the Voloshky Ukranian Dance Ensemble, the Edinburgh Quartet from Scotland, the Barry Dove Jazz Sextet and the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra, directed by Ernie Green.

The $17 discount subscription rate ends Sunday, so area residents are urged to subscribe now. After that, the subscription price increases to $20.

All concerts are held at North County High School and at area churches and are accessible to the handicapped. At NCHS, there is assistance for the hearing impaired. Send your subscription order to PAAL, P.O. Box 321, Linthicum, 21090.

* This year, two Overlook Elementary School students received awards at the County Science Fair.

Third-grader Ashley Gregg received honorable mention for her entry entitled "The Maze," and sixth-grader Brad Wisniewski garnered third place for his project "Reaction Time."

The school community is proud of its young scientists and their accomplishments.

If you decide to "fast food it" today, then patronize two local restaurants. They are giving part of the profits to area elementary schools:

Overlook Elementary will participate in Domino's Dough Raising Program. Domino's Pizza will give the school $1 for each order placed today.

Linthicum Elementary School will be part of a Cash-Ol-A Program at Burger King on Nursery Road. Between 5 and 8 p.m. today, the school will receive 20 percent of the fast food restaurant's total sales.

Association officers received news last week that the light rail bridge over Route 648 will be widened in North Linthicum. This is something the association has been working on for some time, and they are gratified with the new decision.

* The Ferndale Garden Club held its Installation Dinner at a restored Sykesville B&0 train station, now called Baldwin's Restaurant.

Erma Holland was reinstated as president. Dot Malchester was elected vice-president; Kathy Shatt, secretary; and Lucille Killian, treasurer.

The club recently planted red, white and blue annuals in large barrels along the new, wide and attractive sidewalk in Ferndale.
