Country Christmas Fair a Huge Success

Thank you to all those who attended the St. Blaise Country Christmas Fair!  The parish hall was transformed to include a Country Store featuring jars of soup and dessert ingredients, homemade Christmas snacks and mulled cider packets, decorations, and many other items found in a typical New England country store. The candy section was especially crowded with kids picking out favorites. The kids’ games section was busy all day too with games like pick-a-pocket, reindeer ring toss, and snowman knock down. The craft table had many Christmas-themed handmade items such as Christmas centerpieces, key rings and ornaments. Santa and Mrs. Claus enjoyed greeting the kids as they told Santa their Christmas wishes.

The Main Raffle featured 40 gifts, including $150 gift cards to Walmart and Market Basket!  The Money Raffle, will be drawn on January 14, after the 10 a.m. Mass, and tickets are still available for purchase after each Mass at St. Blaise.  

The adults had a great time playing the Card Game with all kinds of themed baskets as prizes.  The kitchen supplied a tasty variety of food and hot mulled apple cider enjoyed by many visitors!  And coffee and tea were available free of charge!  Many purchased individual cupcakes, muffins and cookie packs from the Christmas Bakery for their breakfast or dessert after their lunch.  Pies, cakes and breads were also bought to take home to enjoy with family and friends. A delicious pasta and meatball meal for all volunteers capped off the day.  

The committee co-chairs, Sue Garten, Diane Gaughran and Mary Tucker, want to thank all who donated raffle gifts and the volunteers for their time, work and donations which made this fair possible.   

The St. Blaise community wishes you the joy, peace, hope and love of the Christ Child this Christmas season and into the New Year.
