FUNKSTOWN - When Letta Dunn throws herself into something, it is never a token effort. For the third year, Dunn has been involved with the Olde Tyme Christmas festivities in Funkstown. This year, the events are Friday. Dunn's introduction was very subtle. "Rose Gaver is my day-care provider and she talked me into it," said Dunn, a native of the Halfway area who has lived in Funkstown since 1987. Rose Gaver and her husband, Rich, chair the observance every year and are always looking for new people to help with the growing festival.
