Don’t forget to bring the kids to the Christian Ed sponsored Kids Room. Kids can have fun doing crafts and
playing games – all while you shop!!

We will have beautiful hand-made gifts, jewelry and much more!
 Stop by our breakfast bistro for a hot cup of gourmet coffee & homemade treats.
 Take a break at our luncheon featuring hot, homemade lunch.
 As always, we’ll have hand made Candies, Breads & Treats, Crafts and White Elephant bargains!
Craft Donations – To make the Craft Table attractive, we need variety! Many of you make things to
decorate your home, and useful items to make life easier. What can YOU create for our fair? If 10
people make just one or two “things”, it would be great. Please put a price on your donation – only you
know what it cost to make. Of course, your time is priceless.
Food Donations – Donations for the food table can be delivered to the church the week of the fair. The church
will be open on Wed Dec 4th 9-1pm or 7-8:30pm, Thurs Dec. 5th 5-8:30pm, Friday Dec. 6th 9-2pm or
Saturday Dec 7th between 8 and 9 am..
