idea of a Shlngletree Festival.
Plans include demonstrations for

The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints will hold a
"fireside," Sunday, March 17, at 6:30
p.m., at the Shallotte Branch on N.C.
130 at Ash to introduce the teachings
of i'ne church.
Thurman Skipper, state patriarch,
will speak, and the film, 'The
Restoration of the Priesthood," will
The public is invited, said a church
spokesman. Refreshments will be
The Blythe Family of Brighton.
Colorado, will minister in song and
word during revival services March
24-31 at Abundant Life Full Gospel
Church on N.C. 179 south of Shallotte.
Services begin at 6 p.m. on Sunday
. .ov p.m. WC'CIUIlgniS. Special
singing is planned each evening.
The congregaton invites everyone
night, a street dance would be held in
a vacant lot, rather than on an actual
??root. Ms Stevens said.
July the Fourth weekend was
chosen because it Ls already a busy
time of the year for Calabash. The
committee had thought of holding it
earlier in the year, when the
temperature was not as hot, but turnout
would probably be low, Ms.
Stevens added. July 6 was chosen
rather than the fourth because of
Southport's annual festival.
Funds from the sale of advertisements
in a booklet used to promote
the festival will also go toward
purcluislng the cherry picker.
