Herb Day event Saturday to offer Friendly Thyme


HERBS AND HISTORY come together at the Friendly Thyme Herb Club's annual Herb Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the rose garden of the Flag House Museum, 844 E. Pratt St. in Baltimore.

The club moved the event to the Flag House this year because the previous location, the 1840 House, is part of the Baltimore City Life Museums, which have closed.

"Herb Day provides an excellent opportunity to further the club's purpose, which is to gain and share knowledge of herbs," said Sue Latini, who will cook dishes over the open fireplace in the museum from her cookbook, "Hearth Cooking: Early American Recipes."

Members have scheduled hourly lectures and demonstrations on growing and using herbs and will sell crafts and other items made with herbs.

Refreshments made by club members will be sold.

Admission to the museum is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and $2 for children.

Parking is available adjacent to the building.

The rain date is June 21.

Information: Flag House Museum, 410-837-1793; or Latini, 410-766-1463.

Bible school

The Church of Christ, 2 Eastern St. in Fernglen Manor, will conduct vacation Bible school from 10 a.m. to 11: 30 a.m. June 22 through 26.

This year's lessons will center on people in the Bible whose stories serve as examples of courage and forgiveness.

Classes will be offered for ages 2 through adult.

No fees or donations will be collected.

Registration is not required but it would help organizers if they know how many people to expect.

Information: 410-761-3795 or 410-859-0511.

New leadership

Betty Brown, outgoing president of the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights, handed the gavel to her successor, Virginia Kuhn, at the club's recent board meeting.

The other officers in the new administration are Margaret Booker, first vice president; Mary Foster, second vice president; Barbara Anderson, corresponding secretary; Marjorie Reusch, recording secretary; and Mary Lee Laprade, who continues as club treasurer.

New board members are Lynn Marie McGowan, Celeste Riddle, Shirley Beck, Carol Novak, Irene Wilson and Christa McIninch.

Brown was president for two years. Under her leadership, the club grew, and its involvement in community activities prospered.

Sara Frances Shay, education committee chairwoman, presented awards to local students at the schools' end-of-the-year awards days.

The club gave four $500 scholarships to North County High School graduates -- William Carter, Elias Cossis, Amy Jacobs and Bridget Phoebus.

Angela Brown and Matthew Howard's names will be engraved on the club's plaque at North County recognizing them as outstanding seniors.

Kristie Martin and Greg Engel, straight-A students at Lindale-Brooklyn Park Middle School, each received a $100 savings bond for their scholastic accomplishments.

The club gave dictionaries to Nikkita Dukes, North Glen Elementary; Tim Robin Sharpe, Overlook Elementary; Amanda Kraft, Linthicum Elementary; Taryn Brittany Wolfe, George Cromwell Elementary; Tabatha Shorb, Ferndale Elementary; and Raynell Bennett, Hilltop Elementary, in honor of their excellence in writing.
