Friendly Thyme Herb Club welcomes new chief


JOAN KRAMMES will conduct her first meeting as president of the Friendly Thyme Herb Club at 10 a.m. Friday at Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center, 7205 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd.

After business is conducted, club member Lola Zabetakis will lead a workshop on making a wall hanging with dried flowers, herbs, jute and an embroidery hoop. Materials will be provided. Members should bring a glue gun and scissors.

Zabetakis is a talented craftswoman who shares her skills with a group of women from her church, First Christian Church of Glen Burnie, as well as the herb club. For more then 20 years, she has PTC enjoyed all kinds of crafts.

"I can't think of any craft I don't do, except knitting. I can knit, but I don't like it," she said.

Her favorite materials to work with are dried and fresh herbs.

Guests and prospective members are welcome to attend. For information, call Krammes at 969-3025.

St. John Lutheran Church is sponsoring beginner and intermediate country-western line dancing lessons from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays, beginning this week. Partners are not necessary. Families are welcome.

Dick Benjes of the Dancin' Cowpokes is the instructor. Dance descriptions will be available for all dances taught.

The fee is $5 a session. The proceeds will benefit the church's building fund.

Holly Run service

Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church will conduct a Communion Service at Holly Run Chapel from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on New Year's Eve.

Holly Run Chapel, on Church Circle off School Lane, is open only on special occasions. The structure was built in 1828 with English bricks and was originally at the corner of Old Annapolis and Camp Meade roads. Regular services were conducted there until 1911, when it was abandoned and vandalized.

It was dismantled in 1966 and rebuilt at its present location. The restoration, undertaken by Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church, was completed in 1978. Baltimore artist Ronald Spencer repainted the intricate Greek columns, urns, gold stars and ancient religious symbols originally done in 1901 by an itinerant German artist.

For information, call the church office at 859-0990.
