The dinner is free to members of the church and their guests and will include a fashion show of wedding dresses "through the years," said coordinator Becky Valenta.

"One wedding dress belongs to the grandmother of one of the models and is around 120 years old," she said.

Baby-sitting will be provided.

Art night at school

"Art for a Family's Heart" is the theme of the annual art night at Glen Burnie Park Elementary School at 7 p.m. May 30.

Students in grades 1 through 5 and their families are invited to spend an evening creating a family self-portrait using a variety of media.

Coordinated by art teacher Sue Owens, with the assistance of the PTO, Art Night has proved very popular at Glen Burnie Park.

"This special event provides a great opportunity for each child to show off his creativity and skills that he has developed throughout the year," Owens said.
