Holy Family Christmas Fair

As I mentioned yesterday, there is a Christmas Fair fundraiser today at Holy Family Parish, being held in the parish hall at St. Ann’s Church on Pleasant Street.  The tables are overflowing with items for sale and for raffle. Here’s a photo of the room being set up:

There will be food available – the menu looks good:

Here is a sampling of the items available for sale:

Origami Santa and his Rainbow Reindeer

One uncut sheet of paper each.  The reindeer is folded from a design by Peter Engel, and the Santa is designed by Steven Casey.   I folded them to be among the items raffled and sold at the Holy Family Parish Christmas Fair, to be held this Saturday, Nov. 17, 9am-2pm.

 

Here’s a closeup of some of the reindeer:

They took me about an hour each to fold.

Preparations for the Christmas Fair at St. Ann’s

The Women’s Guild is getting ready for the big Christmas Fair at St. Ann’s Church in Holy Family Parish (as announced on this blog). Here are some photos of the preparations, and some shots of merchandise:

The tables run almost the full length of the hall, and many are already almost full

Bea Ciaramitaro is the organizer, who has been working hard to bring it all together

All sorts of things are available, including secular winter items...

...and religious articles for year-round use...

...and religious Christmas decorations...

...all set up by the Women's Guild elves! (Here, setting up the jewelry table)

They are climbing ladders to be sure that everything is of the "highest" quality, even the hall decorations!

There are also religious and secular books, and much more! Come check it out on Saturday, Nov. 19, 9AM-2PM, in the Parish Hall under St. Ann’s Church, at 60 Prospect St. in Gloucester!
