Fridays at the Library scheduled for Nov. 9

The next Fridays at the Library for homeschoolers will be Thursday, Nov. 9, in the B/C meeting room of Washington County Free Library at 100 S. Potomac St.

Career Day will feature professionals from all walks of life who will talk about their careers.

The elementary program will be from 1 to 2 p.m., and the high school program will be from 2 to 3 p.m. Middle-school students may choose either session.

The library hosts a series of free programs for homeschoolers the second Friday of each month. No registration is required.

Students can earn service hours at show

High school students who need to earn community service hours are invited to assist with the 23rd annual Kris Kringle Holiday Craft and Gift Show on Nov. 18 and 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Clarion Hotel and Convention Center at 901 Dual Highway.


Students will help vendors unload and set up Nov. 17 from 3 to 7 p.m. Helpers are needed to hand out fliers and perform other duties during the two-day event and help vendors pack up at the conclusion of the event.

Proceeds from the event benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and the food distribution program at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hagerstown.

For information, call Linda Williams at 301-582-1233 or 301-331-1233.
