More than 150 student musicians from Arundel High School will present their winter holiday concert at 7 p.m. Dec. 22 in the school auditorium.
The chorus, under the direction of Richard Porter, will present carols including "Mary Had a Baby," featuring soloist Maryn Ferguson. Music Director Phillip Butts will conduct the band and orchestra. The color guard also will perform.
Three trumpeters will continue a band tradition, performing Leroy Anderson's "Bugler's Holiday." The 1998 holiday buglers are Shannon Argy, Shaun Daguval and James Mulherin.
Church members go caroling
Members of Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church in Crofton will go caroling in the neighborhoods around the church at 6 p.m. Sunday. Afterward, they will share refreshments at the home of music director Suzann Barthold.
Crofton Kiwanis keeps busy
The Crofton Kiwanis Club has been spreading holiday cheer since Thanksgiving.
The club contributed money to five local churches that were providing Thanksgiving dinners to needy families in the area. The club also donated toys and money to the Salvation Army in Annapolis to help with its projects.
Kiwanis President Tom Fallon and more than 20 club members and Key Club members helped install 300 feet of fence along the edge of the playground at Swann Park in Crofton. Key Clubs are service organizations for high school students sponsored by local Kiwanis chapters.
Jim McGuire and Marnie Fallon joined Arundel High School Key Club members Saturday at the Winter Craft Fair at the school.
Fallon sold knitted neck warmers and Crofton Christmas tree ornaments to raise money for Kiwanis projects. McGuire
counseled and encouraged the sales people.
The craft fair also marked the return of Barbara Lines Goetz, who was in the first seventh-grade class when the school opened in 1949. In those days, high school and junior high school was combined in one building.
Goetz enjoyed looking through the Christmas gifts and decorations on sale, but her eyes kept roving through the building. It was the first time she had returned since she graduated.
"It was such a big school," she recalled. "We always got lost in the beginning."
