A FREE COMMUNITY health fair will be held at the Community Center at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church at 611 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

Medical personnel will check cholesterol, blood pressure, pulmonary function, pulse oximetry (blood oxygen) and hearing, courtesy of Ear, Nose and Throat, Asthma and Allergy and Audiology Care (ENTAA Care). Screenings for glaucoma will be provided courtesy of the Baltimore Washington Eye Center.

Screening for diabetes will also be available, but candidates must fast for the preceding eight hours, with only water and black coffee allowed.

No appointments are necessary.

Information: 410-787-4367.

Mystery concert

For most children, a couple of hours of trick-or-treating on Halloween night isn't enough scary excitement and snacks to hold them for a year.

To extend the holiday fun, the Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra will present a Halloween Musical Mystery Tour concert at 11 a.m. Saturday at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church.

Although the concert is free, donations are appreciated -- and be sure to wear your costume.

The orchestra has about 150 members, ages 8 to 18, in three ensembles: the symphony orchestra conducted by CYSO music director David Ik-Sung Choo; the repertory orchestra conducted by Jason Love; and the string orchestra led by John Nardolillo.

Information: 410-263-2664.

Boosters' craft show

A few spaces are available for craft makers for the Old Mill High School Band Boosters' annual fall craft show, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m Nov. 21. The school is on Patriot Lane in Millersville.

Information: 410-987-4095.

A day for friends

Last week, students at Shipley's Choice Elementary School took a day off from their studies for a Special Friends Day.

Kindergarten through fifth-grade students put on two musical shows for an audience of mothers, fathers, grandparents and friends.

Music teacher Joanne Chiles directed. The school's human relations coordinators, Nancy Johnson and Barb Scott, helped with the planning.

The price of admission was nonperishable food, which was donated to the county food bank.
