Festivals add to excitement of autumn


October 26, 1997|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THIS IS my kind of weather! To me there is nothing like the cooler temperatures, colorful foliage and crisp falling leaves to enjoy outdoors before the uncertainty of winter.

Adding to the atmosphere are the harvest festivals and craft fairs that make the season even more enjoyable. Two popular ones are scheduled Saturday.

Harvest festival luncheon

The United Methodist Women of Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church, 200 School Lane, is sponsoring a harvest festival luncheon from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

The cost for this annual fund-raiser is $6 a person. Profits go toward mission work.

Reservations should be made by tomorrow.

Craft show

Start your Christmas shopping at the Beary Best Christmas Craft Show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at North County High School, 10 E. 1st Ave.

More than 50 craft workers will sell handmade wood crafts, gift baskets and jewelry.

Santa Claus will pose for pictures with children at 11: 30 a.m.

The show is sponsored by the Parents-Boosters Club to raise funds for scholarships.
