Don your costume for celebrations of Halloween SOUTHEAST Sykesville * Eldersburg * Gamber


October 27, 1992|By MAUREEN RICE

The witching hour is almost here. Time for ghoulies and ghosties and beasts of all description. Time to put together those costumes.

I, of course, rest easy, knowing that we have ours (store-bought).

For those with the courage and stamina to sew a costume for you or your kids, my congratulations. Next year will you make one for me?


Put on your costumes and head for Carrolltowne Mall's Malloween Party or, if you live in Gamber, head for the fire hall.

The mall is running free puppet shows, "Dig Those Dinosaurs," Friday and Saturday, and a Trick or Treat parade at 4 p.m. Saturday, followed by a costume contest.

The Gamber Fire Company is holding its annual Halloween Party for children and adults from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday. Participants are asked to bring at least one canned good for a local charity; admission is a bag of wrapped candy. And don't forget your decorated pumpkin, because pumpkins will have their own contest after the costume-judging.

For grown-ups, the Sykesville and Gamber fire companies plan dances on Halloween. Wear your costumes. Both dances start at 9 p.m. At the Gamber fire hall, there will be music by Stillwater and costume-judging. The $8 admission includes beer and set-ups. Information: 795-7908.

At the Sykesville fire hall, music will be by Appaloosa. Admission is $10. No alcohol will be sold.

Information: 795-9311.


Participants in the Secret Pals program will be unmasked at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, and they'll learn who has been sending them cards, gifts and other tokens of esteem.


The Gamber Fire Company will sponsor a bull roast from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8. Fare will include steamed, fried and raw oysters, oyster stew, pit beef, barbecued sausage, hot dogs and sauerkraut, salads and Sue's baked beans. Steel Rose will play country music. Tickets are $20 and benefit the fire company. Reservations: 876-2494, 795-4228 or 795-7908 by Nov. 2.


Freedom Elementary children will get in shape for Halloween during gym Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on the Fall Obstacle Course.

Children will crawl through and under a "spider web," scoot through the "bat cave" and around the "witches' hats," do jumping jacks, sit-ups and push-ups in "the graveyard," frog leap through "lily pads" and do the "ghost swing."
