Looking for some fall fun? The Mullinix corn maze on Carrs Mill Road (across from Western Regional Park) is open for business weekends through Oct. 30. This is the second year for the fun maze, which covers a 10-acre cornfield and is shaped like a crab.
Why not come out and see if you can crack the crab? In addition to the corn maze, there is also a mini children's maze (made of straw bales), a corn pit, hay rides, pedal tractor track and apple cider, pumpkins, mums, food and drink offered for sale.
For the more adventurous, choose to travel the maze on Friday night in the dark — be sure to bring your flashlights! The maze will be open Fridays from 3 to 10 p.m. (last tickets sold at 8:30 p.m.), and Saturday and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last tickets sold at 5 p.m.). Admission to the maze is $9 for adults and $7 for children ages 3-11. Group rates are also available.
For additional information, email email@example.com or call 410-245-6014.
St. Andrew's Church will be offering its monthly community feast Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. October's menu will feature an Italian meal lovingly donated by Smokin' Hot Catering.
Each month the church designates a charity or cause to benefit from the proceeds of the meal. In October, proceeds will benefit the not-for-profit organization Worldwide Shelters. Worldwide Shelters works in partnership with other leading aid organizations and charities to deliver a holistic approach to rebuilding communities ravaged by war and disaster across the world.
Shelter is the third largest expense in humanitarian aid, but the most underfunded because, compared to food and medicine relief, there are far fewer organizational resources available for the shelter effort. Worldwide Shelters strives to provide high value, thoughtfully developed shelters that not only put a roof over people's heads in the short-term, but also help them transition toward a return to permanent housing.
So plan to take the night off from cooking, and come have dinner with family and friends at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church at 2892 Route 97, in Glenwood, between the post office and Union Chapel Road for this great cause. Dine-in or carry-out is available. The cost is $9 per person or $30 max per family.
In last week's column I mistakenly gave the wrong date for Town and Country Auto Repair's Ladies Car Care Clinic. The correct date is Oct. 22 from noon to 2 p.m. Sorry for any confusion!
The clinic – designed for women – will help to answer your questions about car care and how to speak with your car care professional in an informed and knowledgeable way.
Are you unsure about what questions to ask when you take your car to the shop, or even when your car needs to go in for a check-up? This clinic is the perfect opportunity for ladies to learn everything they need to know about car care – you will learn about tire pressure and tread depth, fluids and oil, signs that brakes give you, how to clean battery posts and how to jump start a vehicle, what emergency items should always be kept in the vehicle in case of breakdown, as well as a basic understanding of automobile systems, so that you can be well informed and knowledgeable about your automotive needs.
For more information or to register for this workshop, call Town and Country at 410-531-2493.
