Bake sale will again feature quilt raffle


April 18, 1999|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

TAKE YOUR pick from a table of mouthwatering home-baked goodies at the Linthicum Lions Club's Bake Sale, which will run from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Shipley-Linthicum Shopping Center and again May 1.

Club member Marlene Stivers will be there, in front of Charlene's Card Shop, with raffle tickets on another of her handmade quilts.

Stivers was a familiar face at the shopping center last year. She spent many days selling tickets on the first quilt she made for a club raffle. And she is looking forward to it again.

"Linthicum Lions is great, and so is the community. I love to stand on `my corner' and meet all the nice folks. I find you only need to ask with a smile and give a thank-you," she said.

According to Stivers, this year's quilt is a little different. "This one has bright colors -- red, yellow and blue -- and is more of a comfort style," she said. Stivers calls the quilt, which covers a double bed, "Grandmother's Flower Garden." Tickets are $1, or six for $5. The drawing is scheduled June 12.

Money from the bake sale and raffle will go toward construction of a maintenance building at Lions Camp Merrick, a camp for sight- and hearing-impaired youth.

Uniforms provided

At 7 p.m. tomorrow, the Linthicum Lions will conduct its regularly scheduled meeting.

The meeting place has been changed to St. John Lutheran Church, 300 West Maple Road. A representative from the Children's Home in Catonsville will speak. The Lions will receive more information on the good works of the home.

Recently, the club provided 13 uniforms for children on a basketball team at the Children's Home. The club heard that the children wanted them because teams they competed against had them, and they didn't. Each player got to choose a uniform number, too. According to member Sharon Wunder, who initiated the project, there was no rhyme or reason to the numbering but a lot of personal satisfaction for each child. Member Tom Durkin also helped with the project.

Church drama club

The Drama Club of St. John Lutheran Church will present "A Bad Year for Tomatoes" in four dinner theater performances Friday, Saturday and April 30 and May 2. Doors will open at 6: 15 p.m., and dinner will be served at 6: 30 p.m. Tickets for the light-hearted comedy are on sale for $10 for adults and $8 for children ages 12 to 16. The price includes dinner before the show.

Tickets are available from the church office at 410-859-0020.
