Highland Day is the annual fall festival held at the crossroads (Routes 108 and 216) in Highland on the first Saturday in October. This year it falls on Oct. 5 (rain date Oct. 6) from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
It's a time when residents old and new can come together for fun, food and festivities. It's also a time when local businesses, crafts-people, artisans, etc., can showcase their stuff in front of a larger audience.
The organizers are currently accepting applications for exhibitors and crafters. For event details and registration, go to the web page at highlandmd.org, and click on the link for "Exhibitor Details & Registration". Or, send an email to: HighlandDayMD@gmail.com.
Do you still have stuff cluttering up your garage, basement, attic or shed and would like to give someone else an opportunity for them to enjoy it? On Sept. 7, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., St. Francis of Assisi is hosting its annual yard sale — just the place where you can sell your stuff.
The cost for space is $20 for a spot (two parking slots) and $10 for each additional spot. Mail your check payable to St. Francis of Assisi Parish, Yard Sale, 8300 Old Columbia Road, Fulton, MD, 20759. Don't forget to include your name, address and contact phone number. For more information, contact Joan Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org or Gail Brown at email@example.com.
You probably have a few of these in your purse or wallet. They provide a painless way to help raise funds for the music department at your favorite local high school — Reservoir.
I'm talking about grocery store gift cards. For every $100 card purchased, $3 is credited to your student's music trip account and $2 goes to the general music fund. If you don't have a student in the music program at Reservoir, you can designate one of the students to receive the credit. This program just changed hands. Laura and Kerry Kane handled the program for the past few years. It has now passed to Tina Sauer. For more information, drop her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
