Willie's Fabulous Fun Fair to feature carnival games, face painting, sand art, raffle at school


WILLIAM WINCHESTER Elementary School will sponsor its annual fun fair at the school from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. According to PTA volunteer Kathi Esland, "This is the fourth year for Willie's Fabulous Fun Fair."

The public is invited for a day of fun and carnival games with prizes. The fair includes a duck pond, tip the cat, golf, an obstacle course in the gym, a baseball wheel and a wet sponge toss where kids can nail their teacher with a sponge.

Throughout the day the fair will feature face painting, sand art and a raffle of items donated by faculty and staff members.

"The gym teacher donated a Japanese baseball shirt, the guidance teacher donated lunch and games for you and a friend. There's a handmade bunny and even a video basket with video movies and popcorn," Ms. Esland said. Raffle tickets cost 10 cents.

A used book and craft table will offer bargains. Foods will include pizza, cotton candy, sodas and a bake table. All proceeds will benefit the William Winchester Elementary School PTA.

The school is on Monroe Street in Westminster.

Karate for all ages

Even though the weather has not begun to whisper "spring," we ache for those first signs of the season. Often for youngsters, that means signing up for sports.

Pleasant Valley Recreation Council will sponsor an eight-week session of American Kenpo Karate, beginning Wednesday. Classes will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. each Wednesday for eight weeks at Runnymede Elementary School on Mayberry Road. Ages 6 through adult may take part.

Registration will take place before the first class Wednesday, and will cost $15 per student.

Unitarian Universalism

Unitarian Universalists invite the public to participate in an adult education course called "An Eclectic Introduction to Unitarian Universalism." The seminar will be held from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. March 18 and March 25, at Cedarhurst Unitarian Universalists, 2912 Club House Road in Finksburg.

Through readings and discussion, participants in the course will increase their understanding of Unitarian Universalism. The course is designed for those who have been Unitarian Universalists for years, as well as for those who are new to the faith.

Course leader Dave Hunter has led adult education courses at Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington. Most recently he led a workshop on the historical Jesus at the church in Finksburg. He is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard law school.

Unitarian Universalism, according to Cedarhurst's minister, the Rev. Kerry Mueller, "is a noncreedal faith that values the worth and dignity of every person, emphasizes deeds rather than words, affirms the value of religious community, and supports individual journeys toward spiritual understanding."

Information: Mr. Hunter at (410) 719-9659, or the church office at TTC 861-8820.
