The arrival of fall means that it’s soon time for Craft Fair, which will take place the Sunday before Thanksgiving on November 22. All HNC members are asked to volunteer for two hours: either by setting up the high school on Saturday afternoon or volunteering at Craft Fair on Sunday. We feed every volunteer - whatever your shift! Saturday afternoon set-up and Sunday night breakdown crews are treated to all-you-can-eat pizza. Volunteers on the day of Craft Fair are served coffee, hot cocoa, tea and freshly baked muffins.
Sign-ups are online this year, so grab your spot early! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054aaea622ab9-volunteers
In addition to volunteering two hours of your time, each family is asked to contribute two baked goods (e.g., two pies, two loaves of bread, two dozen cookies) to the ever-popular Bake Table at Craft Fair. Details of where to drop off your baked items will be available in November’s newsletter.
Extraordinary shopping is in store for this year’s 38th annual Craft Fair. This year there will be 153 booths brimming with the finest handmade items from around New England. See you on Sunday, November 22 for an amazing day!
