Apples, cider on tap at Kiwanis event


October 16, 1997|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE BEST EATING and baking apples -- Red and Golden Delicious, Empire and Stayman -- will arrive early tomorrow morning from an orchard in northern Maryland.

It's time for the Severna Park Kiwanis Club's annual Apple and Cider Sale.

The hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday and again Oct. 24 and 25 at the Woods Community Center (formerly the Severna Park YMCA).

Along with the freshest apples, there will be equally fresh cider (pressed the day before the sale) in gallon and half-gallon jugs as well as my favorite, apple butter.

Besides the nutritional benefit of apples, you'll gain the satisfaction of helping Kiwanis support many area organizations: Bello Machre Center, Meals On Wheels, Crownsville Hospital Center, Christmas in April, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, Kiva House for young people from distressed families, Severna Park Assistance Network, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Woods Community Center, soccer tournaments for young athletes, and the planting and maintenance of the Severna Park post office gardens.

Fall festival

A fall festival is planned from noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 25 at St. Martin's in the Field Episcopal Church on Benfield Road.

The day school parents' association is sponsoring an afternoon of family fun and a silent auction.

Bonfire social

The Severna Park Jaycees, that indefatigable bunch of 21- to 39-year-olds, will play host to an outdoor Bonfire Social at 6: 30 p.m. Oct. 25.

If you fit the age group, bring a friend, a scary tale or two and something to cook on the grill.

Information: 410-263-5591.

And, if your community or business organization needs a convenient place to meet, consider renting space in the Jaycees' community center in Kinder Park off Jumpers Hole Road.

The center has two large meeting rooms, a complete kitchen, tables and chairs and an outdoor barbecue with lots of space for outside activities.

Rental information: 410-987-5069.

Looking for harmony?

There's a new sound in the air in Central County: the sweet music of women's four-part barbershop harmony.

"Barbershop-style music, sung a cappella, is a uniquely American folk art that has evolved into a highly stylized art form," says organizer Rose Swicegood. "No musical experience is necessary to join the new chorus. Learning how to sing in the barbershop style and camaraderie among the singers are some of our goals."

The group plans to become an official Sweet Adelines chorus. With a membership of 350,000, Sweet Adelines International is the largest women's singing organization in the world.

The new chorus meets at Our Shepherd Lutheran Church on Benfield Road in Severna Park.

Information: 410-761-3931 or 410-269-5814.
