March 04, 1998|By Pat Brodowski | Pat Brodowski,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

FAMILY GAMES AND food tuned to the tastes of pre-school through fifth-grade children are the highlights of activities during the sixth annual PTA Garden Party, to be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the gym of Spring Garden Elementary.

Carnival-style games at 25 cents per ticket are designed for all ages. Pizza, hot dogs, lemon sticks, pretzels, snowballs, soda and baked goods will be available.

Children's crafts will include making bead necklaces and name bracelets. This year, face painting has been expanded to the full face, if desired. Colored hair spray, a runaway favorite last year, will return to embellish heads this year.

The staff's silent auction includes plenty of chances to dine with a favorite teacher. For a quiet moment amid the carnival atmosphere, check out the very popular book fair and table of handmade items geared toward children's interests.

Entrepreneur honored

Randy Reese, a Hampstead building contractor, was named "Entrepreneur of the Year" by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 31.

Help your garden

General Gardening, the second in a series of free lawn and garden care classes for residents of Robert's Field, will be held tomorrow from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Spring Garden Elementary School, Boxwood Drive, Hampstead.

The classes are given by Lisa Spence, home horticultural assistant of the Cooperative Extension Service.
