4 things to do this week
Get some new bed sheets Not a joke. On Friday, the 6th, 7th and 9th District Ladies Auxiliaries of Union Hospital are hosting the “Ultimate Linen Sale” from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in meeting rooms 1 and 2 of the hospital in Elkton.
They’ll offer kitchen, bed, bath and many more items for the home. The public is welcome, and the auxiliaries say they’ll accept cash, credit or payroll deduction (for hospital staff).
Celebrate Johnny Appleseed In honor of the famed seed spreader’s 242nd birthday this coming weekend, Milburn Orchards will put on some special activities. Visitors will have the opportunity to take pictures and talk with the man himself (or at least someone in character), as well as share Johnny’s birthday cake. Saturday and Sunday. Head out to another
Fall Fest Water Witch Fire Company Station 72 is hosting its Fall festival on Saturday.
It’ll feature yard sales, crafters, direct sales vendors, food and more. Last-minute 12x20 spaces are still available for $20, and can be purchased by calling 410977-3539.
If it rains on Saturday, organizers say they’ll move it to Sunday.
Meet the ponies (again) It happened once in August, and this weekend Rolling Hills Ranch in Port Deposit is opening its horses and ponies to the public again. Visitors are invited to meet and groom the horses, as well as learn about the program.
Should they want to ride, there will be a $5 fee, or $25 for a riding lesson. Reservations for lessons are encouraged — 410-378-3817.
Granite Run puts together a terrific basket of fish and chips. I remembered to take a picture only after I’d squeezed the lemon and eaten one of the battered and fried cod fillets.
I asked to try their Kansas City BBQ chicken, and they graciously brought me a medley of chicken, pork, brisket and ribs (pictured here). That’s a slice of corn bread there on the left.
