The "American Girls Fashion Show" promises to be one of the more interesting events held in Columbia this year. The fashion show, to benefit the Children of Separation and Divorce Center, features historically inspired girls' clothing from 1774, 1854, 1904 and 1944. It is intended to demonstrate how much American girls and their fashions have changed, yet stayed basically the same, over the past 200 years. It is a gala event all family members can share and enjoy. Young girls attending with parents are encouraged to bring their favorite doll.

The fashion show will be held at The Columbia Inn, Wincopin Circle, on Friday, Nov. 27, and Saturday, Nov. 28. Shows will be presented at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. each day. Tea and treats will be provided.

Tickets are $25 (of which $12 is tax deductible), and may be purchased by calling (410) 740-9553 or (301) 596-1677.

Why not do some of your early holiday shopping at Running Brook Elementary School? The school is holding a Book Fair during American Education Week, Nov. 16-21, to help raise funds for the media center. Because of drastic school budget cuts by the county, profits from the Book Fair may be the only source of funds to purchase new books for the library.

Anyone interested in buying books is invited to stop by Running Brook Elementary School, 5215 W. Running Brook Road, between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and browse through the selection of children's and adult books.
