Around Funkstown

Holiday week

So here we sit, right smack dab in the middle of the Christmas holiday and the new year. No school for the children, of course, and I am sure they have plenty to keep them occupied.

The refrigerator is still overflowing with holiday leftovers and the tables are still laden with cookies, cakes and pies so much that it would probably be best to start freezing some of it.

Indoor flea market

This is one of those weeks that not much is happening in the area, with schools closed and service clubs taking a breather.

If you are looking for something to do Saturday, however, the Funkstown American Legion is holding an indoor flea market. The doors open at 7 a.m. and there will be more than 50 vendors.


Lions Club holds charter night

Speaking of service clubs, the Funkstown Lions Club held its charter night Dec. 9, and honored several local men for their service to the club and the community. There were 41 attendees at Beaver Creek Country Club with William Cianella presiding. In attendance were Past District Gov. Gary Fisher and charter member John Welch.

Terry Gossard received the Melvin Jones Award for his service to the club.

If you are interested in joining the Lions Club, call Jim McCoy at 301-432-5937.
