A Tradition From the Ages —
What’s older than our building? Pre-dates our By-Laws? Kept Horace Mann supplied with seasonal sweets? FUUSN’s legendary Holiday Fair!
The tradition continues in 2017. FUUSN will roll out its annual holiday fair on two weekends: Saturday, Nov. 4 for a neighborhood yard sale of epic proportions, with Trader Jackie’s on Sunday for those of you that have come to depend on her Gourmet Dinners to see you through the holiday season; and Saturday, Dec 2 for seasonal cheer, with gifts and wreaths, books and jewelry, baked goods and much more.
How can you help?
• First, we need donations of items for the November Yard Sale: Gently used toys, tools, kitchenware, housewares, knick-knacks, garden items, and so on. Beginning Sunday, Oct. 29 please deliver items to the Parish Hall stage. An uncluttered basement will be your reward.
• We also need a good showing of many hands for an hour or two – whatever you can spare. On Friday evening Nov. 3 we’ll set up. This is a fun evening for every age from eight to eighty, as we sort though our donations and display them to their best advantage. On Saturday we throw open the doors and invite our friends and neighbors to shop till they drop!
• Please also put Dec 1 and 2non your calendar to lend a hand with our traditional Holiday Fair. There will be cookies to be baked, wreaths to be decorated, a gift table extraordinaire and a silent auction of amazing finds.
Watch the newsletter and weekly bulletins for more details. Both Holiday Fair events are fun and provide an important part of our annual budget. We can’t do it without the help of the congregation, and that means YOU!
With gratitude, your Fair Chairs, Ruth Comstock, Judy Curby, Laurel Farnsworth
