High school's winter craft fair offers one-stop holiday shopping


November 30, 1994|By BONITA FORMWALT

More than 200 artisans will be on hand for the Glen Burnie High School annual winter craft fair, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The fair, sponsored by the Class of '97, the Key Club and the Interact Club, offers one-stop holiday shopping.

To accommodate the increased number of craftsmen and women and shoppers, the fair site has been expanded to include the cafeteria, math wing and the industrial arts building.

Coordinator Mary Huey has recommended a route that will allow visitors to "see it all."

"We're suggesting people start in the industrial arts building, move into the math area, over to the lobby and then into the cafeteria," she said.

Shoppers can expect to find floral arrangements, wood designs, traditional holiday decorations and more.

"We have someone who makes beautiful leather jewelry, someone who makes beaded jewelry using antique beads and a geologist who uses rocks and minerals to make jewelry," Huey said. "We also have crafters selling assorted Santas, animal pot holders and switch plate covers."

Refreshments -- including holiday cookies from the school's foreign language club and home baked goods from the Cheerleader Boosters -- will be sold all day.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for the Bone Marrow Registry.

For information, call the school office, 761-8950.


When the curtain rises next week on the Children's Theatre of Annapolis production of "Snow White Goes West," Patty Teakle will be one step farther along on her journey from Glen Burnie to the lights of Broadway.

In her first performance with the Annapolis company, 13-year-old Patty portrays a singing-dancing cowboy in this comic-western adaptation of the popular Grimm's fairy tale.

An eighth-grade honor student at Corkran Middle School, Patty takes voice lessons at the Glen Burnie Academy of Fine Arts. She hopes her efforts now will help as she pursues a career in films or the theater.

Just as comfortable behind a camera as in front of an audience, Patty is a member of Corkran's film club. She and several other students are filming a mystery story from an original screenplay.

Performances of "Snow White Goes West" are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Dec. 9 and 16, and 2 p.m. Dec. 10, 11, 17 and 18 at the Pascal Center for Performing Arts at Anne Arundel Community College.

Tickets are $6 for all shows. Call 757-ACT1 for information on ticket availability, group discounts and "Scouting Night."


An evening of fellowship to celebrate the holidays will be part of the Harundale Presbyterian Church annual "Christmas Family Night," from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the church, 1020 Eastway.

Church members and friends of Harundale Presbyterian are invited to begin the evening's activities with a worship service in the sanctuary. Scheduled performances include the Sunday school children, children's choir, handbell choir and the Harundale Band.

Dinner will be served in the Fellowship Hall after the service. Tickets are $1.75 for adults and $1.25 for children under 10.

Reservations are required as soon as possible.

Several holiday workshops have been planned including a cookie exchange, cookie decorating, storytelling and children's crafts.

Sheila Ruth and Peggy Glen will lead a sing-along of favorite Christmas carols at 6:30 p.m.

Members of Girl Scout Troop 252 will provide free baby sitting for children 3 and younger.
