THIS summerlike weather has given us a great excuse for postponing the usual chores, at least for a little while, which leaves plenty of time to get out and support community events.
Gibson Island County School Parents Association is playing host to its annual Marketfest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow on the school grounds, 5191 Mountain Road.
Pat Tolner and Candace Chandler are co-chairing this year's event.
"We've tried to come up with a mix of old standards and new things at this year's fest," Tolner said.
Old favorites, such as the famous GICS clam chowder and pit beef, will be on the menu. The Treasure Room will be filled with used items.
A batting cage will be open and the Oriole Bird will pay a visit. Admission is free.
Country line dancing
Back by popular demand is the Stoney Creek Democratic Club's two-for-one deal on tonight's country line dancing event. Admission to the club at 8123 Fort Smallwood Road usually is $10 per person, but tonight two can be admitted for $10.
Included in the price are dancing lessons by Michael and Ronnie Marchand, open dance time, a dinner buffet and beverages.
Instruction starts at 7 p.m., with open dancing to follow.
The Riviera Beach Volunteer Fire Company will hold a dinner bingo tomorrow at its Fort Smallwood Road firehouse.
The doors will open at 4: 30 p.m., with early bird games starting at 6 p.m.
An Italian dinner, featuring spaghetti, tossed salad, bread, dessert and beverages, will be served.
Regular bingo games will begin after dinner.
Tickets are $20 each.
Christian music concert
Galilee Lutheran Church will serve as host of a Christian music concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the church, 4652 Mountain Road.
The band, Captive Free, is made up of young adults and is sponsored by the Minneapolis-based Youth Encounter.
"These performers commit to a yearlong, full-time tour, performing in hundreds of churches, schools, youth events, coffeehouses, nursing homes, camps and prisons, bringing their wake-up message," said Marylin Eazes, church spokeswoman.
Admission is free. An offering will be taken.
The deadline for reservations for "Let the Fire Fall," a program of spiritual renewal sponsored by St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 7859 Tick Neck Road, is Oct. 20.

The cost, $15 per person, includes materials, continental breakfast and lunch Saturday.
