Groups add twists to Halloween

October 19, 1997|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

JUST WHEN you think you have heard everything, along comes something new. Some of our neighbors are putting a new twist on Halloween this year. One group is sponsoring a haunted house with a biblical theme and another is having an Irish Halloween dance. The Haunted House, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at the Friendship Church of the Brethren, 217 Mansion Road, is not your typical haunted house.

The youth of the church will dress as characters of good and evil to demonstrate how choices made in life can lead either to heaven or hell. All ages are invited. There also will be face painting and other activities for children. Hot dogs, soda and popcorn will be available. Admission is $1.

Information: 410-789-2422.

Costumes are optional, but probably a few leprechauns will be dancing at St. Philip Neri's Irish Halloween Ceili from 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday at the church hall, 6401 S. Orchard Road.

Noelle O'Toole, chairman of the event and instructor of Ceili said that this is a great family activity similar to square dancing. Even those who have never danced Ceili will learn and have fun. "We will have a variety of dances and levels, and it's a great way to meet new people," she said.

Music will be provided by Windy Gap. Tickets will be available at the door.

The cost is adults $10 and children (ages 4 to 16) $5. Beer, wine, chips and pretzels are included.

Information: 410-859-0571.

European folk show

The Tamburitzans, a group of 36 young entertainers from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh will appear at 3 p.m. Oct. 26 at Lindale/Brooklyn Park Middle School as part of the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum series.

The Tamburitzans are full-time college students dedicated to the preservation of Eastern European folk culture.

They have traveled throughout North America, Europe and South America.

Dressed in the colorful peasant costumes of Eastern Europe, they sing in a dozen languages, dance in as many routines and play an array of instruments. On their overseas tours, sponsored by the U.S. State Department, the Tamburitzans present songs, dances and music of the United States.

This production is the second of six concerts offered by the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum. A season ticket costs $23.

The remaining concerts on the schedule will be held at North County High School.

Information or tickets: Jo Barker, 410-859-3308, or Eloise Vaughan, 410-859-8047.

Bull and oyster roast

St. Philip Neri Roman Catholic Church is sponsoring a bull and oyster roast Nov. 1 in the church hall on South Orchard Road.

Food will be served from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and music will be provided from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and are available until Oct. 26. Information: Don Glover, 410-761-1452.

Don't forget to look for a treasure at the St. Philip Neri Fall Flea Market, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the church parking lot.

No tables are provided, but spaces are available for rent for $10 each. The rain date is Nov. 1.

Post office meeting

Representatives from the U.S. Postal Service will discuss the future of the Brooklyn Park Post Office at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the monthly meeting of the Olde Brooklyn Park Improvement Association at Brooklyn Park Elementary School.

Many in the association believe the post office building is inadequate, according to Woody Barlow, spokesman for the group.

The association regularly holds meetings on the third Tuesday of each month.
