The leaves are starting to turn, there's a nip in the air, and Saturday the air over Crofton will be filled with the smell of barbecued chicken.

The annual Federated Women's Club Arts and Crafts Fair will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Village Green off Crofton Parkway.

Fair-goers may sample the wares from more than 100 booths, then stop to fill up on some of that famous Boy Scout chicken that always smells so good.

If the weather turns against us, the fair will be on Oct. 2.

If you have a child in the Crofton Middle School, please consider volunteering a few hours to help out in the office or health room.

As you know, the school is overcrowded and did not receive any additional support staff this year to assist the administrators and faculty. The health aide assigned here last year has been eliminated, and the secretaries must take up the slack.

And a lot of slack that is, too. Last school year, the health room was visited by students 3,356 times and medication was administered 4,140 times.

If you can help out in the office or health room, call Susanne Bradley, 793-0280.

The school also needs volunteers in the media center. If interested, call Sylvia Anderson, media specialist at the same number.
