Craft fair on Saturday supports band, orchestra

NEIGHBORS

March 23, 1995|By JONI GUHNE

If, indeed, there is a thin person inside each of us trying to get out, the 120-pound me must share her space with Ms. Cave, who has been present since childhood. Ms. Cave wants to rise with the sun, sweep out the bat droppings, draw pictures of her pets on the walls and, when the sun sets, go to bed.

At the vernal equinox, we are reminded of our perfect life: 12 hours being awake, 12 hours sleeping.

Forget it. As long as "Chicago Hope" and "NYPD Blue" are broadcast when modern man prefers, I'll take my less than perfect hours of sleep, and doze at the computer.

My thin me and my early woman both enjoy shopping. Join us at the Old Mill Band Booster spring craft fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the school cafeteria. The school is located on Patriot Lane in Millersville. At least 115 artisans will dazzle you with their handmade goodies.

Proceeds benefit the band and orchestra's competition and parade expenses. Information: 410-760-8221.

Oops. Last week's column gave the wrong date for the Ladies of the Knights of Columbus' luncheon/fashion show. It will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 1, and you can take that to the bank, says publicity chairman Florence Balonis. Call 766-2572 or 766-5212.

Lee Ferrell is the youth director at Severna Park United Methodist Church. Recently, her middle school teen-agers met with Lee Ranck, editor of the United Methodist Church's magazine, Christian Social Action.

The April issue will feature issues of concern to children the world over. Severna Park students were especially concerned about racial prejudice, violence, and drugs and alcohol, issues they see played out in school. They also listed the environment, poverty, AIDS, teen sex, war, overpopulation and homelessness among their concerns.

The students said the problems could be solved if people wrote to their delegates, recycled items, discouraged recreational hunting, supported charities and sponsored children in other countries.
