St. John Lutheran Church Youth ministry selling top-quality mulch


March 30, 1997|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

APPLYING MULCH has always been one of my favorite things to do in the garden. After all the hard work of planting and weeding, mulching is the last step. It is the finishing touch that makes the evergreens and flowers seem to look so much prettier.

So when you get ready to work in your garden, look to the mulch sale sponsored by the youth ministry of St. John Lutheran Church. Place your order ahead and pick it up after 9 a.m. April 12 on the lot across from St. John's, 300 W. Maple Road.

High-quality shredded hardwood from the Loudon Heights Fuel Co. will sell for $3 for a 3-cubic-foot bag; $1.05 is tax-deductible. There will be free delivery to seniors and anyone ordering 10 bags or more.

Proceeds will benefit the building fund and enable several young people to attend a National Youth Conference in New Orleans.

Orders will be taken until the day of the sale. Information: the church office, 410-859-0020.

Oyster, bull roast

The Anne Arundel Alarmers Association is sponsoring an oyster and bull roast from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. April 6 at Earleigh Heights Fire Hall, Ritchie Highway and Earleigh Heights Road.

Atlantic Caterers will take care of the food. Besides oysters and beef, smoked and fresh ham, sauerbraten, barbecue, shrimp creole, spaghetti and meat sauce, sauerkraut and hot dogs will be served. Salads, whipped potatoes, fresh fruit, cake, beer, wine, and more will also be offered. Music will be by The Lasting Impressions.

Profits support the works of the Alarmers. Today is the last day to purchase tickets for the discounted price of $22. Tickets purchased after today will be $25. Call Kroeger Electric Co. at 410-766-1416 or Ruth Altvater at 410-761-4679.

AARP to meet
