A peachy keen festival with barbecued chicken on the side PASADENA


August 06, 1993|By PEG ADAMARCZYK

Food, glorious food. Everything from peaches to chicken will be available at Galilee Lutheran Church Aug. 14.

First, there's the annual Peach Festival from noon to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

The featured item on the menu will be -- what else? -- fresh peaches served with or without ice cream and dozens of homemade peachy desserts.

But dessert delights are not the only items featured.

Residents can't live by peaches alone. Luckily, the Lutheran Men will be at the grills and offer a barbecued chicken dinner featuring half a bird, a choice of two homemade salads, a roll and a beverage for $6. Carryouts are available. Barbecued chicken also will be sold on the roadside for $4.

A local artist will sketch on-the-spot portraits all afternoon for a fee.

The church is at 4652 Mountain Road.

For more details, call the church, 255-8236.


The Pasadena Sportfishing Group will have its monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Orchard Beach fire hall, 7549 Solley Road.

Capt. Buddy Harrison from Tilghman Island will speak. He'll share insights and information about fishing trips out of his home port and show a video of a recent trip.

Anglers can register at the meeting for the PSA's Aug. 14 white perch fishing contest and party. The event will be at Pasadena Boatel and will feature cash prizes for the five longest white perch landed. The $10 entry fee includes the contest and party.

The post-contest party is from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and will feature hot dogs, corn on the cob, beer and sodas. Nonfishing family members may attend the party for $5. Children ages 10 and under may attend free.

Membership in the PSA is free and open to the public. No dues are charged.

Tickets for door prizes and a 50/50 raffle will be sold. Food and refreshments, sold by Orchard Beach VFC, will be available throughout the evening.

For information, call George Bentz, 255-3678.

County police will launch a computer-assisted identification program -- Operation ID -- for bicycle owners at several locations this month.

According to the police, about 100 bikes are reported stolen in the county each month.

While many are recovered, some cannot be returned because the owner does not know the bike's make, model and serial numbers.

Operation ID should make it a little easier for the police to return stolen bikes.

In the Pasadena area, reserve officers and volunteers will be at Downs Park from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow and on Aug. 15, 21 and 29, to register bikes in the program.

It's a simple process. All you need is a driver's license and your bike. After filling out a form, officers will engrave the license number on the bike and place a sticker on it warning a potential thief that the bike is on file with the police.

Operation ID will also be offered this month at the B&A Trail ranger station and at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.

For more information, call 222-SAFE.
