Spring means festivals, fun, fellowship


AMAZING WHAT happens in spring in our community. We have so many chances to get together with our neighbors for fun and fellowship.

We'll be able to get together from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, for example, at the May Fest, sponsored by the Patapsco Valley American Association of Retired Persons, Chapter 3850, at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church hall, Sweetser and Marydell Roads in Linthicum.

Tables will be full of baked goods, plants, woodworks, Christmas items, crafts, jewelry and lemon sticks for sale, and Orioles tickets, a picnic and a gift certificate to Snyder's Restaurant to be raffled off.

Eleanor Pieroschek, club president, said the men will prepare lunch.

"The gentlemen are in charge of the kitchen, which is kind of nice," she said with a little laugh.

The event is chaired by Audrey Miller, Anna King, and Bim Wheeler. Profits from the May Fest go back to the community for charitable purposes.

Chapter 3850 meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at St. Christopher's hall. Refreshments are served at noon followed by a program and business meeting.

To commemorate the club's 25th anniversary, Carol Wagner has designed pewter jewelry that will be for sale, and artist Ken Lehman of Harmony has painted commemorative watercolors that also will be for sale.
