Magothy church group to offer old-fashioned chicken dinner


September 27, 1996|By Peg Adamarczyk | Peg Adamarczyk,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

ANOTHER GLORIOUS fall season awaits us this year, if we can make it through the hurricane season undrenched. Of course then we face an early, frigid, snowy winter, according to the folks at the Hagerstown Almanac.

It's enough to make a person want to move south. No, more of a chance of hurricanes.

West? Earthquakes, thanks, but no thanks -- I shake enough on my own.

North? Does the phrase "moving from the frying pan into the fire" ring a bell?

Smack dab in the middle? Floods, tornadoes, and cold. Oh, my.

I guess the best option is to stay right where I am. At least I know where to put my hands on an emergency supply of bread, milk, and toilet paper when the need arises.

Church dinner

The United Methodist Men of Magothy United Methodist Church, 3703 Mountain Road, will be cooking and serving an old-fashioned chicken dinner from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow in the church's fellowship hall.

The cost is $7.50 for adults and $3.50 for children under age 12.
