St. Andrew's goes Mexican for this month's Community Feast

July 22, 2011

The next St. Andrew's Community Feast will be this evening, July 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. This month, it's a Mexican feast! It's been too hot to spend much time in the kitchen cooking, so let Smokin' Hot Catering do the work.

Smokin Hot Catering donates the meal for each community feast, with 100 percent of the money earned going to a good cause. This month, the dinner proceeds will go toward summer camp scholarships for kids in our community and in the Guardian Angel community of Remington.

Guardian Angel is a sister church to St. Andrew's in an area of Baltimore where many people are struggling to make ends meet and many are even living on the streets. Let's help send some of those kids with Glenwood kids to camp

To learn more about the monthly feasts, call Lynne Quinn at 410-442-5445. The Feast costs $9 per person or $30 per family. St. Andrew's is at 2892 Route 97, in Glenwood. See you at the feast!

The Glenwood Lions met July 7 to induct its new officers for 2011-12. To kick off the evening, the Lions took a few minutes to pay tribute to those who have served over the past several years. Then, King Lion (president) Jim Adams passed the gavel to the newly elected King Lion, Betty Frey. Others installed as 2011-12 officers were Secretary, John Cullison; Treasurer, Mike Lay; Tail Twister, Tom Pardoe; Lion Tamer, Josh Dill; First Vice President, Gloria Nutzhorn; Second Vice President, Barbara Hughes; Third Vice President, Bill Barnett; Immediate Past President, Adams; Membership/Program Chairman, Harrison Morson; Executive Board, all officers plus Jean Riley, Yvonne Kronlage, Charlotte Dill, Josh Dill and Win Riley.

It seems that the summer has flown by and that as you read this, the 66th annual Howard County Fair at the county fairgrounds, in West Friendship, is slightly more than a week away, running Aug. 6-13. Members of 4-H Clubs all over the county have been working hard all year, in preparation for the upcoming week of contests and events.

Members of the Dayton 4-H Club have been working hard getting their animals and other projects ready for show. Among their summer activities, they have made several livestock promotion visits to local groups and organizations, encouraging people to think about supporting the 4-H Livestock Sale Aug. 12.

The sale is a very important part of the livestock project to many 4-H'ers and community support is critical its success. 4-H members have been working hard throughout the summer to promote the sale. They have written letters to potential buyers to encourage them to support the sale and visited with local groups and businesses, sharing the benefits of buying an animal from a 4-H member.

People who purchase an animal at the sale receive quality, locally grown, grain fed meat for their freezer. Supporting the sale is an investment in a youth's future as proceeds will help them pay for their next 4-H project, buy their first car or even help to fund their college education.

Please consider providing your support by purchasing a lamb, steer, or pig at the Howard County Fair 4-H Livestock Sale this year. A 4-H'er will thank you.

While at the fair, be sure to stop by the Lions Club food booth to get an affordable fair meal for your family – including hand-dipped ice cream. The favorite part of my children's day is stopping at the Lions food stand first thing in the morning for a fresh breakfast sandwich. The many volunteers who help at the Lions Club food booth help to make this one of their most successful fundraisers for the year – helping to finance the many activities that Lions supports throughout the year.

The fair features a kids and critters barn, livestock and horse shows, dog shows, pig races, pony rides, clowns and magicians, woodworking demonstrations, a working bee hive on display, animals on display, horse, mule and tractor pulls, archery competition, baby contest, talent show, commercial exhibits, a wide variety of entertainment, midway rides and games, grand parades, and much more!

Admission to the fair is $5 and children younger than 10 are free. Parking is always free. Armed Forces Day is Aug. 6 — a valid Military ID gets you in free and this includes spouses and children younger than 18. Senior Day is Aug. 9 is Senior Day — bring the grandparents (62 and older) and they will be admitted free.
