What are the changes in the Fair?
There will no longer be an outdoor Yard Sale on a third weekend.
(See below for details.)

There are three new features at the Fair:
  • The Boutique will replace the Silent Auction.
    The Boutique will offer many of the same antiques and collectibles that were part of the Silent Auction. Instead of bid cards, all items in the boutique will be offered for immediate sale.
  • There will be an Indoor Yard Sale as part of the second weekend, instead of an outdoor Yard Sale. It will still offer tools, lamps, rugs, garden supplies, etc.
  • A new Kids’ Corner, managed by the church’s Youth. Be sure to check it out!
  • We bid a fond farewell to the “Baked Goods Table” and “Book Nook.” Baked goods will be for sale at the Snack Bar. The public library’s book sales, and the book barn at the recycling center, are convenient resources for the avid reader.
