Event offers fun for the whole family


January 12, 1994|By LARRY STURGILL

Circle Friday, Jan. 21 on your calendar and the whole family can make plans to enjoy a fun-filled day and evening, courtesy of Slayton House and the Wilde Lake Community Association.

The kids can romp through a Bingo/Splashdown Combo during the day, and the parents can enjoy "Wilde Bingo Night" in the evening.

Since there is no school, the day begins with a School's Out Program for the kids, ages 6 to 12.

First up is bingo at Slayton House, from 10 a.m. to noon. Game prizes for the kids will include free passes for Splashdown and gift coupons from local merchants.

After bingo, the kids will then move next door to the indoor swim center for a Splashdown party and recreational swimming from noon to 4 p.m.

Lunch and snacks will be provided at the swim center.

The good news for parents is that the cost for the entire day of well-supervised activities is only $6 -- definitely a great deal by today's standards.


Tickets must be purchased in advance, and space is limited, which means you better get the kids signed up ASAP.

Then, in the evening, with the kids at home, happily exhausted after enjoying the all-day activities of the School's Out Program, it's time for the parents to get out and have some fun at Slayton House for their second "Wilde Bingo Night."

They had their first Wilde Bingo Night several months ago, and it was wildly successful. In fact, many of the people who attended wanted to know when the people at Slayton House were going to do it again.

"The first event was a lot of fun," says Carole Black, the Program Coordinator for Slayton House. "Obviously, there are a lot of people in our community who enjoy bingo."

The second Wilde Bingo Night begins at 7:30 p.m. There will be refreshments and cash prizes, and game cards will be available at the door. Reservations are not required.

For more information on both the School's Out Program and Wilde Bingo Night, please call Carole Black, or Sharon Lea, the Slayton House Special Events Coordinator, at 730-3987.


The PSTA of Wilde Lake High School will hold a Town Meeting tonight, at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium. The subject will be the educational programs at the school.

Members of the Howard County Board of Education will present the issues and answer questions. Panelists will include: Dr. Michael Hickey, superintendent of Howard County Schools; Dr. Jacqueline Brown, coordinator of Human Relations; Dr. Daniel Jett, instructional director of high schools; and Dr. Leslie Walker-Bartnik, supervisor of testing. Dean E. Sterling, PSTA president, will be the moderator.

If you are tired of the rumors and myths about the program at Wilde Lake, come to this meeting and hear the truth. The entire Wilde Lake community is invited to attend.


If summer camp for the kids is in your plans for this year, be sure to attend this year's Camp Expo to be held at Kahler Hall in Harper's Choice Village Center on Sunday Feb. 6, from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

As in previous years, the event provides the best opportunity to talk with representatives from various summer camps and help parents make the decision as to which camp will be best for their children.

More than 50 options -- offering everything from local day camps to wilderness adventure camps for children from pre-school to ,, high school -- will be displayed.

Information: Kahler Hall, at 730-3888.


This Friday, at 7:30 p.m., Slayton House will offer the first film in the 1994 "Marvelous Movies and More" film series.

Wendy Hiller stars in "I Know Where I'm Going," a 1945 British film, which tells the story of an impoverished, but head-strong young woman determined to marry for money.

A dessert buffet with coffee and tea, and an audience discussion about the film, with film historian David Pierce playing host, will follow the showing.

Tickets are $4 and will be available at the door, or reservations may be made by calling 730-3987.
