Coffee and goodies, soup, Sloppy Joes and chili will be served 11 - 1.
Your donations of "gently used" items including purses, jewelry, mugs, books, scarves, general household and holiday items, and your favorite baked goods will help make the fair a fabulous community event! If you would like to have a vendor table in the crafts area, the cost is just 10.00 dollars! (Please no used clothing or shoes for this event) All proceeds help to support twenty different ministries and projects through WELCA, including Seafarers Ministry, Hildegarde House, and Lutheran World Relief.
