Evening in Hancock set for Friday, April 16

Dinner, music, humor and great talk. Once again, the Hancock Arts Council is putting on an evening of entertainment at the Park-n-Dine Restaurant.

The Evening in Hancock, Friday, April 16, will feature a variety of performances, preceded by a buffet, which begins at 6 p.m.

Tickets cost $30 and can be purchased in advance at the Hancock Town Office, at 126 W. High St., or call Sinclair Hamilton at 301-678-5719. Last year's event was a sellout.


Legends concert to be held Friday

The Hancock Elementary PTA has managed to "book" some "famous persons" to perform in their "Legends Concert" Friday at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

Johnny Cash, Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson don't have anything on our own performers, who will give a hilarious attempt to sing as well as their star faves did.

Retired teacher Jeanne Ward is helping to organize this event and reports that Dorothy and Toto will show up along with Patsy Cline, Liberace and Minnie Pearl.

Admission is by donation only. A basket giveaway will be offered during the show.

Italian dinner set for Saturday

Our neighbors from nearby Warfordsburg (Pa.) Presbyterian Church will host an Italian dinner and bake sale Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m. at its faith center.

The dinner features all-you-can eat spaghetti, side of lasagna, salad, bread, beverages, ice cream and pizzelles.

For sale to take home will be ham and bean soup, homemade jellies and baked goods.

Spring recital

Mark your calendar now for a wonderful musical offering from St. Thomas' Episcopal Church. As a part of the continuing celebration of the 175th anniversary of its founding, the church has invited organist Daniel Weatherholt to present a spring recital Sunday, April 18, at 4 p.m.

Weatherholt grew up in the local church and received his degree in music with an emphasis on organ performance from Frostburg State University in 2008.

He now serves as organist-choirmaster at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Lappans.

St. Thomas' pipe organ dates from 1931 and was rebuilt in 2005, adding several ranks and new features.

It is one of the only Moller pipe organs in the area with a "harp" stop and a "zimbelstern," a type of chiming bell.

The church is at Church and High streets with parking in a private lot and along the street. The recital is free and open to the public.

For information, call the church at 301-678-6569.
