School is almost here

August 07, 2012|Susie Hoffman | Around Funkstown

Good morning, dear friends.

Here we are in August with the start of the school year just two and a half weeks away. Let’s find a few things to get into before it’s time for backpacks, packed lunches and yellow school buses.

Church yard sale

Do a little fall cleaning and purge your home of the still useful but not needed items and call Dianne Keller, then talk to her about renting a space at the Shiloh Church flea market and yard sale. Her number is 301-797-4083.

The event takes place at the church on Shiloh Church Road on Sept. 15, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Spaces need to be reserved by Sept. 8.  


Craft vendors are also needed.

There will be children’s games, music, antique cars, and a karate demonstration.  Breakfast and lunch will be available, as well as soups, sandwiches and baked goods.

North/South reunion

Two of the most exciting days from childhood were the first day of school and the last day. When you are an adult, reunions wrap both of those days into one. Anticipation, excitement and then memories.

The North/South 55th class reunion will be held at the DW Bowman House on Sept. 7 and at Hager Hall on Sept. 8. Tickets cost $30 per person, which includes both days.

For information or reservations, call Nick Carter at 301-790-1094.

Leitersburg Peach Festival

Feeling peachy lately? Guess what? The Leitersburg Peach Festival is this weekend.

It will be held at Ruritan Community Park on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

It will feature arts and crafts, quilt raffle, food, including peaches and peach pies, pony rides and a petting zoo.

Cats meow gala 

The animal health clinic in Funkstown is now a certified cat- friendly practice and will hold an event Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. to celebrate.  There will be tours, gift bags and raffles, as well as kittens and cats for adoption.

Young at Heart

Young at Heart will meet Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at Barefoot Bernie’s, 901 Dual Highway in Hagerstown.
For more information, call Alice at 301-432-6493.
