Around Funkstown

Where did September go?

Excuse me ... could someone please tell me where September went? Am I the only one who feels like time is fleeing so quickly?

Before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us.  I have to admit that I am not in the least distressed but rather enjoying Mother Nature's fast-paced tour of the seasons and the sights and wonders that accompany it. The crayon box is open and the colors of fall are being splashed, ever so delicately over the tree tops.

With the cooler evenings and the turning of the calendar, October promises to be full of fun and memories waiting to be made. Let's flip the page and see what we can pencil in for October.


Women's Club to hold bargain sale

Fall brings the Women's Club to life with its annual fall bargain sale on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Household items, gently used clothing, handbags, shoes and jewelry will be for sale.

Fall fashions set for Oct. 10

In need of something a little more substantial? The Women's Club Fall Fashion and Furniture show will be Friday, Oct. 10, at David's Furniture on Summit Avenue from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Fall fashions will be presented by Alter Ego, Lenas, L & L CLassics, The Boutique, and the Figure Head ll. Tickets cost $15, which includes refreshments and door prizes. For more information, call the Women's Club at 301-739-0870.

Early dismissal

A quick reminder to all parents ... there will be a 2 1/2-hour early dismissal Friday for Washington County Public Schools students. Make sure to make arrangements for child care.

Battlefield event

Halloween is right around the corner, so lets get in the spirit.

The Washington County Commission on Aging, along with Washington County United Way, is sponsoring an evening of Dinner, Show and a Murder. The date is Sunday, Oct. 12, and tickets are limited. The event will be held at the Mumma Barn at Antietam National Battlefield. For more information, call 301-739-8200, ext 12.
