Come December 9th to a Country Christmas Fair

Please mark your calendar for the St. Blaise Country Christmas Fair on December 9th.  We’re waiting to welcome you, help you with Christmas shopping and to enjoy good food and Christmas cheer with family, friends and neighbors. The fair will take place December 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Parish Hall, 1158 S. Main St., Bellingham.
The hall will be transformed into a traditional country store with many lovely items to purchase for your home or as gifts. Two of our parishioners have completed two beautiful quilts, one measuring 57”x72” and one 55”x41”, that will be available in the Country Store. 
A variety of ready-to-make food items in Ball jars such as chili and soups (just add meat and water), cookies, muffins and mulling spices are prettily packaged and ready for sale. Homemade cake pops, spiced cracker mixes, and Reindeer Chow will also be available. A unique Christmas gift that the kids can easily make for Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa is the Family Tree with Heart that is customized with their fingerprints. You can buy pre-made gift baskets or put together a special one with items like jams, soup or cookie mixes, Christmas decorations, soaps, crocheted afghans, pillows, religious items, or jewelry. We are there to offer help if you need it, too. Penny candy, actually priced at a penny, or an already filled bag for 50 cents, will be available in the store.  
The fragrance of a crockpot of hot mulled cider, available for sale by the cup, will greet you as you arrive. Our great kitchen volunteers will be on hand to serve delicious lunch choices like hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, dynamites, and other favorite foods and drinks. The cafe will be open from 10:30-2:00. A great opportunity to refuel yourself while enjoying our fair! Enjoy a variety of breads, muffins, cookies, cakes, and pies from the St. Blaise Sweet Shoppe!
At the Craft table, there will be many handmade items for purchase, like key rings, bookmarks, tissue holders, religious items, Christmas, or winter centerpieces. There will be old favorites and new kids’ games, like Reindeer Ring Toss, Snowman Knock Down, with prizes displayed with each game in a Kids Zone where there will also be a Christmas Tree craft for kids to make. The main raffle table, scratch ticket raffle, and the adults’ Card Game will also make their return.  As part of the raffle, parishioners Chef Dylan Ormberg and family are offering a dinner for six in the Rectory. The meal will be an appetizer, salad, pasta with homemade meat sauce and dessert. Take your chance in the raffle for a pair of Bruins tickets, for a February game! Tickets will also be available for the Money raffle, first prize $500 with four other drawings for various amounts, to be drawn on Sunday, January 14, 2024.
From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at the Fair to visit with all who have a Christmas wish list to give Santa.  And don’t forget to take a picture with them!
