+ Queen Esther is music camp topic
Children who have completed second through sixth grades are invited to participate in a five-day music camp July 28 through Aug. 1, at Oakland Presbyterian Church, 218 E. Oakland Ave. The camp is $100 and is directed by Jennifer Hunt and Bonnie Litteral. Campers meet daily to prepare a Christian musical, which this year is “Malice In The Palace,” the story from the Old Testament about Queen Esther.
Campers will have music classes, daily Bible study, recess, games and recreation time. A free musical is performed on the final night with a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m. to precede the show.
Campers must bring lunch and a drink daily; morning and afternoon snacks are provided. For more information, call Litteral at (407) 466-7554 or email her at [email protected].
+ Include your name on walkway bricks
Commemorative bricks are being sold and will be placed in a walkway at West Side Park, in Oakland.
Bricks vary in size, color and cost and can be engraved with three to eight lines of writing, as well as clip art. The town is taking orders until September, at which time it will have the commemorative bricks etched and laid along the path. The overall sidewalk will require about 400 bricks.
For more information, call Town Hall at (407) 656-1117.
