We are combining two fun events. Our annual Youth Bazaar and our Advent
The Bazaar will open at 1:00 p.m. and the Workshop will start at 2:00
p.m. (This will give our workers time to shop before they start helping
others with crafts.) It’ll be an afternoon of Christmas crafts,
Christmas music, Christmas shopping and family fun! Come and bring the
whole family. There is a nominal cost for the crafts. Bring a plate of
goodies to share.
