Woman’s Club to hold fundraiser
Christmas is less than two months away.
And while the COVID-19 pandemic may make the event look a little different, the Woman’s Club of Warren is moving ahead with its annual What’s New For The Holidays fundraiser.
The local artisan event is set from Saturday, Nov. 14 and will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at club’s decorated ballroom at 310 Market St.
“Make your holidays brighter and less stressful by shopping local vendor goods at the annual What’s New for the Holidays fundraiser,” a statement from the Woman’s Club explains. “A $3 entry fee — children under 12 free — entitles customers to shop from a wide variety of local vendors.”
Here’s a look at the vendors scheduled to participate: Cheryl Frye (reading pillows, embroidered dish towels and other needlecraft items), G G My Love (apparel, gloves, gifts, jewelry and other accessories), Melissa Flagella (delicate paper quilling creations), Roberta Ward (handmade live ground pine wreaths and weatherproof bows), Katherine Lindequist (natural bird feeders and orange suet feeders), Linda Gould Gutknecht (Rada knives, wood crafts and Christmas decorations), Bill Gross (hand-turned wood pens, seam rippers, etc.), Christine Roessler (handmade beach glass jewelry, Lynda Slocum (craft variety), Priscilla Breese (Tybout House Yarn and Candy Shop), Jill Phillips (handmade baskets), Anita Eriksen (seasonal and holiday wreaths and crafts), Marian Aranyos (notecards and small 5 x 7 paintings) and Lori Hatfield and Holly Sheeser (Borsari Food Company).
Because of the pandemic, there won’t be a luncheon as typically would be held and organizers indicate that vendors, workers and customers must wear masks and practice social distancing. Further, each attendee will be given a number in order to comply with guidelines on occupancy.
A raffle will be held and the prizes vary there as well: a $300 money tree, vendor baskets, a wine basket, a Jon Amacher refurbished late-19th century American country-style, single drawer oak washstand, a silver-plated coffee and tea service and a Russell Welch 24-by-30-inch oil painting.
