It's not often you hear of a traditional Irish band that features the name of an impoverished African nation in its title. But the Tanzania Ceili Band, which performs lively Irish music for social dancing, isn't your average group. The seven-member band was formed to raise money to build a medical clinic, Catholic school and orphanage in a remote region of Tanzania in East Africa. The musicians bolster the fundraising efforts of the Tanzanian Children's Project, a nonprofit formed five years ago by Knights of Columbus Columbia Council 7559.

They come to the Knights of Columbus Hall on Homeland Avenue, open the gray, steel doors and troop down the stairs into a long, narrow and relatively drab room. Overhead, pipes are exposed along the ceiling. The walls are pale yellow concrete blocks. The floor is plywood, smooth as fine leather from all the stocking- and tennis shoe-clad feet that have slid over its surface during years of fencing practices. Though people still call Chesapeake Fencing Club coach Ray Gordon asking for fencing for their yards and not fencing lessons, and though Baltimore-area schools do not offer fencing as a sport, somehow interest blossoms and people come - girls and boys, parents with elementary school kids in tow, junior high and high school students who have developed a fascination with the sport, college competitors and adults - all come to this club, where Gordon shares his passion and teaches the proper way to parry an opponent's thrust.

They will be shooting for turkeys at a Pylesville church today. Marksmen, armed with pellet rifles, will fire at targets filled with signatures of those who have paid a dollar or two for a chance to win a hefty turkey, a ham with a well-known label, five pounds of shrimp or a handmade quilt. The name closest to the pellet wins, usually by less than an inch. "They measure to the nth degree to decide whose name is closest," said the Rev. Henry Kunkel, pastor of St. Mary of the Assumption Roman Catholic Church.
