It will be fun. It will be exciting. It will be for a good cause.

Churches, civic organizations and clubs are sponsoring a benefit country fair for the North County Emergency Outreach Network.

The fair is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the field across from St. John's Lutheran Church at the corner of Maple and Hammonds Ferry roads. The groups will donate part of the fair's profits to the outreach network.

Enjoy games, food and exhibits provided by the St. Christopher's Youth Group, Beta Gamma Sorority, St. John's Youth Group, St. John's Twenties and Thirties Group, Linthicum Shipley Improvement Association and Boy Scout Troop 550.

Face painting, pony rides, a moon bounce and a ring toss are on the agenda.

At the make-your-own scarecrow corner, the Linthicum Elementary PTA will provide old clothes and stuffing. The PTA also is sponsoring a silent auction, which includes restaurant certificates, an Oriole Park tour, a ski pass for the White Tail Ski Resort, a weekend at Ocean City and another at Deep Creek Lake.

If you get hungry, there will be plenty of good food available. Hot dogs, roast beef sandwiches, Polish hot dogs, lemon peppermint sticks, hamburger and cheeseburger platters, lemonade, apple cider, pancakes and drinks will be sold. The Friendly Thyme Herb Club will offer homemade herb breads, and the St. John's Women's Club will sell baked goods.

Other attractions include a canine demonstration and an appearance by the county Police Department's McGruff and Officer DARE. Register your bike, talk to someone about "Save the Greyhounds" and buy a helium balloon. See the Linthicum Fire Department engine and paramedic truck from noon to 3 p.m. and the Arundel Alarmers support truck. Miss Maryland Teen USA Angelisa Proserpi will sing at 1 p.m.

Other participating organizations are the Crestwood Homemakers, AARP Meals on Wheels, Linthicum Lions Club, Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights, Performing Arts Association of Linthicum (PAAL), Linthicum Baptist Church and Stonecroft Ministries.
