St. John's church plans fund-raiser to help youth undergoing therapy

September 02, 1997

St. John's Evangelical Church will have a Jacob Armacost Day on Saturday to help with the boy's medical expenses.

Jacob fell into a pool this summer and suffered a loss of oxygen to the brain. He is at Kennedy Krieger Institute undergoing therapy.

The church will start the fund-raiser at 9: 30 a.m. with a walk-a-thon around the church grounds at 827 Leisters Church Road, north of Westminster. People are needed to walk and to sponsor walkers.

That evening, a basket bingo will be held at the Carroll County Agriculture Center on Smith Avenue. Food will be served at 5 p.m. and games will start at 7 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to work the bingo, and donations of baked goods are needed to sell during the evening.

Proceeds from the events will be matched by the Aid Association for Lutherans Branch 406.
