Marriotts Ridge High foundation indulges your apple craving [Marriottsville Sykesville Woodstock]

Apple pie, apple cake, apple dumplings, applesauce — if it's made out of apples, then Marriotts Ridge High School Music Foundation probably offers it through the organization's annual Fall Apple and Bake Sale. All products come from Baugher's Orchards, Farms and Bakery in Westminster.

The first apple sale will end on Friday, Sept. 20, at 5 p.m., and pickup will take place at the school on Sept. 26, 3 to 5 p.m. If you don't make the deadline, don't worry: The sales will continue monthly through the end of the year.

To place an order online, go to Proceeds will support Marriotts Ridge music students. Email with any questions.

It's back! The community feast at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church will return on Sept. 26, after a summer hiatus. Stop by between 6 and 8 p.m. for a delicious Italian meal, complete with beverages and desserts. Guests may sit down to enjoy the meal with others or take their food to go.

The cost is $9 per person or $30 maximum per family; kids 5 and under dine for free. This month's proceeds will help purchase supplies for a health clinic that the St. Andrews' community helped build in Dekapanka, India.

In other news from Glenelg United Methodist Church, the food pantry has now served the community for nearly two years. Over that time, it has seen an increase in patronage, and representatives have been grateful for the generosity and responsiveness of the community.

Recently, the pantry began partnering with the Maryland Food Bank and now purchases most of its food items there, so pantry needs have changed. Representatives would like to request mainly monetary donations from the community, as well as toiletry items, which are not available through the Maryland Food Bank.

If you would like to make a donation or have questions, call the church office at 410-489-7260, or email
