Woman's Club meeting

Dick Gelfman of WJZ-TV will speak at a meeting Tuesday of the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights. The meeting is to begin at (( 10: 30 a.m. at the clubhouse on Hammonds Ferry Road.

Gelfman was a consumer reporter and occasional anchor for WBAL-TV for 10 years before he went to WJZ-TV in 1989. The club is taking up a collection of paper products for Sarah's House and Hearth House, and is asking members to bring a donation to the meeting.

Open house

St. Philip Neri School, 6401 Orchard Road, is marking American Education Week with an open house and a language arts day for students.

Parents and friends are invited to visit the school from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 18.

Millie Yates, sixth-grade language arts teacher, has arranged for Regina Wade, a storyteller from the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore to visit the school Nov. 19 to present a program of stories, rhymes and a sing-along.

"The program is designed to teach children oral literature and to encourage exuberant verbal expression," said Gerri Bitzel, publicity chairman.

"It will also show how pleasurable language experiences provide a foundation for reading readiness," Bitzel said.

Information: 410-859-1212.

As part of St. Philip Neri's teaching curriculum, some students have taken day trips.

In conjunction with a history course, the two eighth-grade classes went to Philadelphia, where the students toured Independence Mall and other places of historical interest in the city.

They also visited Valley Forge, Pa., where the Continental Army spent the winter of 1777-1778.

Teachers Sue Koenig and Ann Nelson, along with parent chaperones, accompanied about 50 students.

On Thursday, St. Philip Neri Middle School attended a performance of "A Christmas Carol," Charles Dickens' tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Multifamily yard sale

Amazing sometimes what one can find at a yard sale: a glass that matches your set and replaces the one you broke, barely used children's toys, or the garden tool you thought was too expensive in the store.

You can look for such bargains from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at a multifamily yard sale sponsored by the Lynnbrook Improvement Association.

The Lynnbrook development is off Hammonds Ferry Road past the county police station.
