"Girls tend to get ignored in sports coverage and sports programs," says Greg Rice of the Mayo Athletic Association. "This program is for them."

The program is the Girls Lacrosse League. Registration is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow night at Mayo Elementary School. The league is open to girls born from 1977 and February 1985.

Instruction and competition is divided into Peewee, Midget and Junior categories. The Peewee category concentrates on skills and the rules of the game. Intramural and countywide competition increases for the older girls.

A $25 family membership fee is required to join the Mayo Athletic Association, plus $15 per girl to participate in the lacrosse program. Association membership qualifies the family for all athletic programs during the year.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis gives support to Our House, a residence for AIDS victims, through such fund-raisers as its annual Antique Show.

The March 6 event at the church, 333 Dubois St. in Annapolis, marks the show's 20th anniversary. Some of the two dozen dealers who will sell their wares this year have been participating from the show's inception.

The show, unlike many major shows, has a distinctly local orientation. From the outset, the church chose to foster an environment in which antiques lovers meet local dealers who can help them pursue their interest year-round. Furniture and smaller collectibles will be sold.

To mark the 20th annual show, the church is accepting special donations from dealers for sale at a church-run booth. The show will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For further information, call Phyllis Culham at 268-9639 or the church at 266-8044.

Nearly three years ago, St. Margaret's Church on the Broadneck Peninsula began a Saturday worship group called "The Gathering" under the auspices of the Maryland Institute for Pastoral Counseling in Annapolis. The group, which meets on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, features an hour of Bible study and a nondenominational service.

Pastor John Lynch, the group's spiritual guide, said many people who have fallen away from regular church attendance feel a void in their lives. "They have found this a way to get back into a Christian fellowship," he said.

Twelve to 18 people attend each meeting. The session starts with Bible study at 4:30 p.m., followed by the worship service at 5:30 p.m.

The second and fourth Saturdays are the usual meeting days for the group, Lynch said, but circumstances occasionally require a change. This week is an example: The Gathering will meet at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, rather than Saturday.

For more information, call Lynch at 255-1742 or 757-0603.

The singing group, affiliated with Sweet Adelines International, meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays to indulge in traditional four-part harmonies, often with untraditional music. They sing for themselves, celebrating the power and variety of the human voice, and they sing on invitation for other groups and gatherings.

Throughout January and February, The Friends of St. John's have been presenting a Mid-Winter Film Series focusing on movies that reflect the changes and conflicts of America at mid-century.

The final film in the series, Wednesday night, is 1948's "Unfaithfully Yours," starring Rex Harrison and Linda Darnell. A satire on obsessive jealousy, it is the story of a conductor who plots revenge against his wife during a concert.
