May 06, 1994|By Holton F. Brown


Among your options for honoring mom on Sunday:

* Take her to the Baltimore Museum of Industry, which will observe the day with free admission for all mothers accompanied by their children. Grandmothers with their grandchildren also will be admitted free. The museum, at 1415 Key Highway, will be open Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Information: 727-4808, extension 105.

* Take her to the 1840 House, where she -- and you -- can learn about 19th century cooking over the open hearth from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Sue Latini, a local food historian, will set a tea table with shortbread, Victoria sponge cake, Sally Lunn bread with butter and Maids of Honor. The demonstration is free with admission to the museum, which is part of the City Life Museums, 800 E. Lombard St. Information: 396-3523.

* And a Mother's Day Kids Korner will help children create planters for their mothers from noon to 2:30 p.m. on the second level of The Gallery. The Kids Korner is free and sponsored by The Gallery and the Radio Zone, station 1570 AM.


If you want to help Mother Earth, show up at 10 a.m. tomorrow at Russell and Monroe streets and pitch in to clean one of the city's worst illegal dump sites.

You can be part of Serve-a-thon '94 Clean Up, an effort by Baltimore RESCO, Baltimore City Public Works Department and Hands-On Baltimore. Volunteers will bag and haul trash from the site. Information: J. Scott Hutchinson, 396-0190.


The Preakness Parade is coming May 14, and the city's Office of Promotion is looking for volunteer handlers for large helium balloons in the parade. If you want to volunteer, call Karen Moul, 752-8632. More about the parade next week.
