RAMBLING ROSE: Christmas Shopping at the State Office Building
Rosa Pryor-Trusty | 12/5/2014, 6 a.m.
BALTIMORE Hello everyone and Happy Holidays. Can you believe it? This is almost the end of the year. My goodness, where did time go? However, if you are reading my column, then you are blessed because you are above ground!
So many family members and friends have left us this year and gone on to a better place. The holidays can be very sad for some of us. I personally can understand that. I also know that we are still among the living and we must enjoy life to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised. So my friends, let’s enjoy!
I want you to check out this very interesting event and it is free! But you must bring a canned food item for a needy family or a new, unopened toy for an underprivileged child. This should help bring the holiday spirit back into your life. This event is open to the public. I am talking about the “Christmas Expo,” which will be held at the State Office Complex located at 20 W. Preston Street in Baltimore on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. This will be the ultimate shopping experience with over 50 vendors to do your Christmas shopping at a reasonable price. Yours truly will be there with autographed books to give to that special someone as a gift. You will get to meet many of Baltimore’s celebrities. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Rosa Pryor Scholarship Fund; The African American Cultural Festival; and the New Africa Committee. Remember this is the State Office Building so make sure that you bring proper I.D., that is a MUST! I will see you there.
The “Roberta’s House Holiday Hope Candlelight Service” will take place on Friday, December 12 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a pre-concert at the Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles Street, which will feature the Roberta’s House Choir; Sound Theory Band; Prioleau Brothers & the Relationship; and special musical guest Maurette Brown-Clark will also perform and much more.
FYI: The Trinity Chapter #5 Order of the Eastern Stars Holiday Dinner Celebration will be held at Collins Seafood and Grille, 3653 Offutt Road, Randallstown, Maryland on Saturday, December 13 at 4 p.m. You can find the reservation under Natalie Hill by logging on www.colinseafoodandgrill.com.
