St. Joseph Church presents holiday bazaar NORTHWEST -- Taneytown * Union Bridge * New Windsor * Uniontown


November 19, 1992|By JUDY REILLY

Unless you've been asleep for the past few weeks, you know that the bazaar season is here. It's time for local churches to serve up crafts and sandwiches and baked goods to raise money for their projects.

On Saturday, Nov. 28, it's "A Christmas Star Bazaar" at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Taneytown. The event, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., will feature the usual crafts and food by church members.

This is a bazaar you'll want to take your children to. There will be balloons and face-painting. And there will be a Christmas crafts corner where, for less than $1, youngsters can make the kinds of simple artwork that become keepsakes for grandparents.

The bazaar also will feature a Christmas shop for children that will offer gifts for less than $5. Raffle tickets will be sold for a hand-crocheted tablecloth, pizza will be served, and a baked goods table will be loaded with goodies. The event is run by the church's youth group. Information: 756-2500.


Creative energy plays a major role in Kathy Barker's teaching career at Northwest Middle School, too. She's will impart some of that energy to her students today when they play host to the kindergarten classes from Taneytown Elementary School.

Miss Barker's seventh-grade students have been preparing for their visitors for a week, setting up five stations for craft making, plus a snack corner.

The reason for the encounter? The seventh-graders have been studying child development, and working with the 5-year-olds will give them a personal experience with the subject. The activities are coordinated with the kindergartners' Thanksgiving curriculum.

This is the second year for the project, which Miss Barker deems a real success.

"It's wonderful to see even the most macho seventh-grader enjoy being with a 5-year-old," she said.


The Taneytown Senior Center bristles with activity today. At 1 p.m. the Silver Fancy Garden Club presents a discussion of "Bats." And at 7 p.m. the center sponsors an open house with an art exhibit of paintings and drawings by senior center students. A crafts exhibit and sale is also part of the event.

For Senior Day on Dec. 7, a trip is planned to the Baltimore Museum of Art to view "Icons of Modernism," on loan from the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The trip will cost $11, and seating is limited. Call the center at 751-1656 if you want to take part.


This week is Children's Book Week, so June Praet, media specialist at Elmer Wolfe and Uniontown elementary schools, is encouraging her students to celebrate the books they read by making bookmarks for a school contest. Children can choose a favorite book to illustrate their bookmark entry. The theme is "Books Make the World Go Round."
