Around Funkstown

Friday's the day

Olde Tyme Christmas is Friday in town and Funkstown knows how to do Christmas right.

I have been filling you in on the details in the weeks preceding and I think the only thing I might have left out is to personally invite everyone to come and partake in the festivities.

The stores and shops are open for your shopping and browsing pleasure and Town Hall will be warm with friends and good will.

Music will fill the streets and luminarias will light your path. I look forward to sharing this most joyous evening with many friends, old and new.


PTA to meet

The South Hagerstown High School PTA plans to meet at the school Thursday at 6 p.m.

If you haven't paid your dues for the year, it's not too late. Please remember to bring any Christmas cards that you have for the troops to this meeting. Let's let the troops know how much we appreciate all they do to ensure our freedom.

Band banquet

Christmas music ... ahhhh ... now here is one thing I don't think I will ever get enough of.

The South High Rebel Band will hold its annual Christmas banquet Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. in the South High auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.

Girl Scouts fundraiser

With all this talk of Christmas and snow, can you bear with me for one second while I mention the words spring trip to a "Beach Jam" in New Jersey?

The young ladies of the Girl Scouts in Funkstown, along with the Firehouse Grill, are raffling off a gift basket with a value of more than $215 in order to help the Girl Scouts reach the beach for their spring trip.

So many goodies are in the Longaberger basket and the cost is $1 per chance or six chances for $5. The basket is filled with Girl Scout candies and nuts, a gift certificate to the Firehouse Grill and ornaments from Chick-fil-A.

The drawing will be Friday at 9 p.m., right after Olde Tyme Christmas. You can purchase your tickets at the Firehouse Grill or by calling Teresa Rossiter at 301-733-1273.

Students help animals

The FBLA at South Hagerstown High is participating in the Humane Society's Home for the Holidays adoption campaign.

The teens at South High School are filling stockings with treats and goodies for the shelter animals.

Now there is a thought that leaves me positively full of hope.

If you would like to help, please find a teen in the neighborhood and let them know you care.

If you can't find one, then drop off your donation at either the school or the shelter. I know this is one project that my daughter Kitty will embrace.

Well, I do believe that my time and space have run out. Please have peaceful and joy filled will. Smile at someone today and let them know you care. Until next week, I'll bring the coffee.
