Around Funkstown

June 15, 2006|by SUSIE HOFFMAN

Summer break

The first full week of summer break is here and the kids are loving it! There is so much to see and do; don't let the summer pass you by without taking advantage of what our area has to offer.

Vacation Bible School to get started

Vacation Bible School is screaming down the track at us the end of this month and it sure does sound like a week full of the most imaginative fun.

God's Celebration Train will be pulling into the station at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Funkstown on June 25.

All aboard for a great adventure the 25th through the 29th! The times are from 6 until 8:30 in the evening. Passengers from preschool through sixth grade are invited to join in on the fun.


Stops along the way include train tunes, caboose crafts, boxcar bible stories, train games, clickety clack cinema and snacks and a trainload full of faith and fun, all the while making new friends. The final stop includes a family picnic with trolley rides on Friday. For more information or to register, please call 301-791-1738.

Take in a game

Take me out to the ball game ... how about watching some really good baseball in a really beautiful setting?

The Funkstown Legion baseball team is tearing things up lately and would love to see the support of their town. The Funkstown park is a fabulous place to grab a bench in the shade, munch on a hot dog and watch a game.

The Funkstown Junior Legion is playing there tonight and how great would it be to go and support them! The game starts at 5:30 as they oppose the team from Williamsport.

The Senior Legion team is heading into a string of home games beginning Saturday and continuing through the weekend. I am sincerely grateful to the Funkstown American Legion for their support of the teams and the good things they do in our community; now lets get out and support them a little!

Museum offerings

If running the bases or doing laps in the pool are not your cup of tea, then the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts has a program or two that might be of interest to you.

This month's programs that are offered are Cartooning for Teens ... Young at Art ... and Sew ... Go Ahead and Create for yourself! Sounds to me as though there is something for almost everyone. For registration or additional information, please call 301-739-5727.

Father's Day

As if you need reminding ... this Sunday is Father's Day. Please be sure to do something special to let these wonderful dads know how much we adore and appreciate them!

May your week be filled with fun ... hugs ... adventure and peace.
