Book fair

Ready ... set ... read! The book fair began Monday at Funkstown Elementary School and will continue through Thursday. Make sure to arm your child with the joy of reading and watch where they go!

The spring program for kindergarten will be Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m. I can sense a whole lot of Kodak moments.

Rounding out the week at the school will be field day on Friday. Cross your fingers for some beautiful weather.


Looking ahead to next week, St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Funkstown will hold a fundraiser at CiCi's Pizza Wednesday, May 27, from 5 to 8 p.m. to benefit Relay for Life. You do not need a coupon or flier, just deposit your receipt in the box before you leave.

Sandwich sale

An old-fashioned ham sandwich sale will be held by St. Paul's to benefit the social ministry. Orders will be taken from May 24 to June 7. The delivery date is June 13.


For more information, call Karen Flohr at 301-797-0056.

Chicken barbecue

The Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. will hold its next chicken barbecue Saturday, May 30.

Barbecue chicken and open pit beef sandwiches as well as Italian sausage and ham sandwiches will be available.

The Ladies Auxiliary members will have a bake sale table.

Pet fair, adoptathon

I spent part of my Saturday at the Long & Foster office on Dual Highway with the Humane Society and the pet fair and adoptathon. A big thank you to Realtor Kari Shank for planning the event.

Andy the Armadillo from the Texas Roadhouse was there to greet and the air was festive and fun. Thanks to all those who came by to check out the animals up for adoption and bring in donations.

Scholarship winners

Congratulations to two fine young people from South Hagerstown High School on their recent award of scholarships from the South High Alumni Association. Ashley Bockstanz and Shane Santell, both seniors, were honored for their academics and extracurricular achievements with $1,000 scholarships toward their continued education.

Ashley plans to attend Hagerstown Community College in the fall and Shane is headed to the Penn State Mont Alto campus.
