Holiday events

Before you mail cards, bake that first cookie or finish your gift-giving list, mark your calendar with Central County's annual holiday show and fair dates.

A few:

A calligraphers marketplace, "A Show of Hands," takes place from noon to 7 p.m. tomorrow; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at the office of Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce.

The work of artists Lynne Carnes, Marilyn Gaver, Suzanne Heany, Jan Lynn, Joan Machinchick and Tamara Stoneburner will be for sale.

If you love fruitcake, then the name Benson needs no introduction. Kiwanis Club of Maryland is selling this famous holiday treat at several locations: Macy's Exxon, Severna Park Shell, McKinsey Road Shell, Jones Station Road Amoco and Jumpers Hole Road Amoco filling stations; Clements Hardware; Severna Barber Shop (formerly T.J.s) and Dawson's Liquors.

Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church's annual holiday bazaar takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 22 at the church, Cypress Creek Road and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard.

Chairman Theo Blaney is excited about the addition to this community tradition of a snowman table.

All the old standards will be there: Christmas greens, fresh nuts and the angel table. Clothes and accessories for the American Girl doll will be available for the children, and a just-for-children table will offer a place for youngsters to buy their gifts to give out.

While at Woods, buy lunch and browse through my favorite section: used books.

St. Martin's in the Field Episcopal Church's annual Christmas craft fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 6.

The entire congregation works on this one: Middle school students will present Santa's workshop for little children; the choir will manage the white elephant sale; the altar guild will make baked goods; and the church's high school students will serve lunch.
