Galilee Lutheran plans peach of a time at festival


YOU CAN GET your peaches baked in pie, cobbler or cake, or served fresh over ice cream, or just plain at Galilee Lutheran Church's annual peach festival and craft fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 8 at the church, 4652 Mountain Road.

But because neither man nor woman lives by fruit alone, the Lutheran men will be at the grills cooking pit beef and chicken. Meals are $6 for choice of meat, salad, roll and a beverage. A child's hot dog platter is $1.50.

Local artisans will display their wares in the craft area, and face painters will brighten children's cheeks, noses and foreheads with colorful designs.

Money raised at the festival will go to Birthright of Annapolis, North County Emergency Outreach Network and New Life Ministries.
