Find gifts at the fair


Those who would like to purchase unique, handmade gifts while supporting local businesses will not want to miss the Christmas Craft Fair.

Once again, the Golden Hour Senior Center is hosting its annual craft fair, which will take place this Friday and Saturday.

According to Barbara Bates, GHSC activities and marketing director, on Friday the craft fair is open from 4-8 p.m. and on Saturday, it is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission for both days is just $1; and all of the money will go to the GHSC.

Those who are hungry during the craft fair will want to stop by the dining room Friday night for a hamburger or a pulled-pork sandwich served with fries.

On Saturday from 8-10 a.m., parents and children will not want to miss the GHSC’s breakfast with Santa Claus event. Bates said the breakfast will include pancakes and sausage.

Children will have a chance to visit with Santa Claus and have their photo taken with him.

During breakfast, children can also make a craft in the crafting corner of the dining room, Bates said.

Those who missed breakfast won’t go away hungry because the center is also providing lunch from noon until 3 p.m. Residents can choose a sandwich or salad of one of five different kinds of soups. All of the meals the center is providing both days will cost $5 per person.

As for the actual craft fair, residents can find just about any craft item or baked-good item they are looking for including, homemade pies, bars and cookies, bird houses, candles, oils, jewelry, jellies, jams, wreaths, pottery, wind chimes, glasswork and much more.

Most of the 70 vendors are local; and this is a great way for someone to shop locally at one warm location, she said.

It’s also a good way to for residents to get their Christmas shopping done and socialize at the same time.
