Shepherd of the Glen Lutheran Church plans fair on Saturday WEST COUNTY -- Clarksville * Highland * Glenelg * Lisbon


September 09, 1993|By SALLY BUCKLER

We've had school fairs, the county fair and the state fair. Now it's time for church fairs, beginning with the Shepherd of the Glen Lutheran Church Fair Saturday in Glenwood.

This fair has become a tradition in Glenwood. There will be lots to do there, but you'll find that the biggest event is the chance to socialize with neighbors. Entertainment will be continuous.

The games, food, crafts and flea market will give you and the kids a chance to shop, eat and play.

If you've never seen the interior of the church, you can take a tour. Be sure to see the quilt, "Garden Twist," sewn by members of the congregation.

Ellen Kilby of Allan T. Hill Associates will auction the quilt, a car and other goodies between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Instead of the usual Thursday afternoon at home, consider trying this. The Glenwood Community Club's Annual Luncheon and Card Party begins at 11:30 a.m. Sept. 23 at the Mount Airy Firman's Activity Building, at Twin Arches Road and route 27.

Those who have enjoyed previous card parties with this group know that there are many activities to entertain and friends to meet. At the function, there are booths for shopping.

If you like homemade baked goods and jams, arts and crafts, home grown vegetables and nearly new items, you'll love the booths. After a pleasant and relaxing lunch, you and your table mates can play the card game of your choice all afternoon.

You'll welcome announcements of door prizes. If you aren't a card player, bring your Scrabble board or another activity to share with a friend, and stay for the fun. Admission to the party and luncheon is just $9, and proceeds go to the Glenwood Community Clubs' charities.

Residents of Glenwood founded the Community Club in 1946 to help meet some charitable and social needs in Howard County. Union Chapel's restoration, the Howard County Association of Retarded Citizens and the Children's Aid fund are past recipients of the club's time and money. This group currently supports Springfield Hospital, the St. Michael's Church Food Cellar, and needy families suffering unexpected crises.

The Glenwood Luncheon and Card party is a major fund-raiser for the club, whose members invite women and men of all ages to join them in the festivities.

For more information about the club or to secure tickets to the luncheon, call (301) 854-6208.


Have you browsed through the new list of activities from the Department of Recreation and Parks? It has lots for western Howard County residents, including quilting classes from Elmira Seibert, hay rides for toddlers at Sharp Farm, western Howard County history classes, photography, senior programs and all kinds of dancing. You can learn belly dancing, swing, country western and line dancing.

The Department of Recreation and Parks offers most of these classes right here in western Howard County.

The Children's Center accepts children aged two years through kindergarten. Preschool meets mornings from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with day care from 6:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., depending on the needs of the family.

Saturday afternoons in the fall are especially busy. If you'd like to lighten your load, have lunch delivered to your door. Just order sub sandwiches from a Glenelg High School band or marching unit member.

You must pay for your sandwiches, $ 3.50 for each foot long sub, by Sept. 15, so don't delay. A smiling student will deliver your lunch Sept. 25. We've had these sandwiches at our house, and they are fresh and delectable.
