Winter Street's third annual Yard Sale

If you started your spring cleaning early and want a place to sell your treasures, you should try a local yard sale. If you don't want the hassle of getting out tables, cleaning up your yard and running around town advertising, then bring your yard sale items to Winter Street Elementary School's Yard Sale.

Winter Street Elementary, at 59 Winter St., is having its third annual yard sale on Saturday, May 6. The sale will start at 8 a.m. and run until 1 p.m. (rain or shine.) You may rent a table for only $10.

Once again, the school staff will be selling delicious homemade foods. If you're looking for some wonderful bargains or just want to drop in for a light lunch or snacks, please stop by.


Anyone who is interested in renting a table should phone the school at 301-766-8439. The Winter Street Elementary School Teacher Social Committee will benefit from the yard and food sale proceeds.

Basket bingo

A basket bingo will be held Sunday, May 7, at St. Joseph Church, Reggie Hall, at 17630 Virginia Ave. Doors open at 1 p.m. and games begin at 1:30. There will be many beautiful filled baskets, and also special bingo prizes. Admission is $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or by calling the parish office at 301-797-9445.

Something to think about

This is the time of year for high school seniors to plan prom activities - beautiful dresses, nice tuxes, the right flowers and, that ever-so-popular after-the-prom party. Be sure you know where your student is going and who will be in charge of the party they attend. It is illegal to drink alcohol before the age of 21 years. What may seem like fun at the time can result in tragedy in the end.

Too loud

A few responses to the article about loudness at a Little League game in last week's column:

One person from the West End believes the louder the cheering, the more the team's players gear up to win.

A gentleman exclaimed that without loud crowd noise it is no game and what is the difference between the little folks and the big league teams - everyone wants to win.

A mother replied that she'd much rather know her son is being yelled at for all the right reasons on the field and it builds his self-confidence.

It is exciting to watch and cheer on the teams but remember to cheer for both teams' players and always have a positive attitude toward each team.
