Children invited to join Lions Halloween Parade


October 22, 1998|By Ed McDonough | Ed McDonough,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

AREA GHOSTS and goblins are invited to march through New Windsor as part of the community's Halloween Parade on Oct. 30.

Participants may register starting at 6 p.m. at the old New Windsor Middle School. The parade is set to begin there at 7 p.m. The route will end at the fire hall.

Judges will select the scariest, funniest and most original costumes in these age groups: 5 and younger, 6 to 8, 9 to 12, and 13 and older.

Participants will receive treats, courtesy of the Sulphur Spring Lions Club. The New Windsor Lions Club sponsors the parade.

Holiday spirit

If it's late October, it must be time to think about Christmas?

The area's holiday shopping begins Saturday with the annual bazaar at Stone Chapel United Methodist Church, 1448 Stone Chapel Road near New Windsor.

The event runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature crafts, a flea market and a bake table.

Information: 410-635-2102.

Game with a view

Win or lose, there may be no more scenic place in the area to watch an afternoon sporting event than the stadium at Catoctin High School in nearby Thurmont.

While last Saturday's girls soccer game between Catoctin and Francis Scott Key Eagles was full of end-to-end action, the view of the looming Blue Ridge Mountains was spectacular.

Weather permitting, the view will be even better in a week or so, when the foliage is at peak color.

Dance for Eagles

Come support the Francis Scott Key Junior Eagles Wrestling Team at its benefit dinner and dance tomorrow at Rainbow Park on Old Taneytown Road.

The dinner will feature roast beef, chicken and side orders and will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The dance will be from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets cost $20.

Information: 410-751-0175.

Cheap eats

This weekend's cheap eats come courtesy of the Taneytown Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary.

That group is sponsoring a turkey and oyster supper from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the firemen's activity building off Memorial Drive.

The cost is $9.50 for adults, $4.75 for ages 5 to 12 and free for children younger than 5. Carryout meals are $10.

Heritage meeting

The Taneytown Heritage Committee will meet at 7: 30 p.m. Monday at Trinity Lutheran Church, 38 W. Baltimore St.

Civil War re-enactors Rodney and Lisa Davis of Taneytown will model Civil War-era clothing.
