The program is recommended for children ages 6 to 12. The day will start with bingo at Slayton House from 10 a.m. to noon, offering a variety of prizes.

From noon to 2 p.m., children can play at the Indoor Swim Center, where lunch will be provided.

After the swim, they will return to Slayton House for activities from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The cost for the entire day is $8 per child, including lunch.

Because of a limited number of spaces available, tickets must be purchased in advance at Slayton House. No phone reservations will be accepted.

Congratulations to Dell Hufford, a student at Running Brook Elementary School. His poem, "Wish Upon a Star," was recently published in The Sun.

For those who missed it, here it is:

A motionless star tranquilly gazes at Earth

Along with his many brothers and sisters

Out in serene space

Thinking of the beauty

/# And how much he's like to visit.*

While on the subject of travel, Dorsey's Search resident Lynn Delcoria has returned from a holiday trip to Ixtapa, on Mexico's Pacific coast.

Since her return, she hasn't stopped raving about the great buys available in Mexico.

She made the trip with two friends, Sally Hespa and Regina Marks from Bethesda, and brought home many souvenirs.

Ms. Delcoria and her friends already are making plans to visit Mexico again next winter.

"We're thinking about Cancun," she says. "Or maybe Acapulco."

My apologies to the members of the Columbia Chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.

Last week, I inadvertently gave the wrong date for its 20th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast.

The event was held last Sunday at the BWI Marriott Hotel and was attended by about 1,000 people.
