September 12, 1997|By Christy Kruhm | Christy Kruhm,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

GOOD LOCAL THEATER is as close as downtown Mount Airy, when the Mount Airy Players present two one-act plays this month.

The nonprofit community theater group will present "When God Comes to Breakfast, You Don't Burn the Toast," and "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie." Curtain time for all performances is 7 p.m. Sept. 19, 20, 26 and 27 at the Firehouse Pub and Grill on Main Street.

Breakfast will never be the same again in the comedy, "When God Comes to Breakfast, You Don't Burn the Toast." God, played by Bob Perry, joins a married couple, played by Paul Zimmerman and Clydia Koch, for their morning meal.

A doctor's waiting room is the scene for a budding relationship in the poignant vignette, "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie." Tom Templeton and Donna Abel play a man and woman who discover the trials and joys of honesty in a relationship.

Director Carol Serna urges everyone to support the arts in our community.

Tickets are $8 and may be purchased at the door or reserved in advance by calling June Allison at 301-795-5557

Homemakers Club reunion

Founded in 1977, the Bi-County Homemakers Club of Mount Airy is planning its 20-year reunion Oct. 8.

The club is inviting all past and present members to an evening of celebration and nostalgia. Desserts and coffee will be served while members catch up with each other's news and share old club scrapbooks, photos and memorabilia.

The Bi-County Homemakers Club is an informal group of approximately 15 women who meet once a month for companionship, a chance to sit and talk, and, most importantly, a chance to have a fun evening without husbands and kids.

Beth Heard, one of the original club members, says that over the past 20 years she's met some wonderful friends through the club. "We're a very close group, although we welcome any new members."

Heard, who lives in Mount Airy, says club meetings are relaxed and informal, usually with no set agenda. "We just have fun and talk," says Heard. "We like to joke that we've solved all the world's problems during our meetings -- and no one has even asked us," Heard said.

Mount Airy homemaker Shelia Pyatt also is an original member. Pyatt says her reason for joining the club was for an evening out without her young children. Now, 20 years later and her children grown, she remains an active members because of the friends she's made and the opportunity it provides to socialize with women.

The Bi-County Homemakers Club was founded by Dee Long, formerly of Mount Airy. Initially operated under the direction of the Carroll County Extension Service, the club soon broke away to become less formal.

New members are welcome, regardless of age. The club meets the first Wednesday of each month.

For information on the reunion or membership, call Heard at 301-831-7297.
