August 02, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

There's still time to enroll for summer classes, too.

The Fathers' Day coffee sale at St. John's Evangelical Parish was a sellout. There will be another Salvadoran coffee sale Aug. 20 and 21 after services at Oakland Mills Meeting House and at Wilde Lake Interfaith Center. Aug. 20 is notable because it is the feast day of San Rouque, sister city of St. John's.

Half of the cost is sent directly to the coffee cooperative in El Salvado; a dollar to San Roque, and the rest to OXFAM, the marketing division.

The growers sell their coffee beans to support their families; OXFAM receives funds to support the cooperative and San Roque receives needed revenue.

Coffee orders can be made, 964-1435, before Aug. 20.
