PEPPERELL -- On Saturday, Dec. 7, the Community Church of Pepperell is hosting its annual Christmas Fair from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Don't miss this great holiday event. There will be something to interest everyone and lots of bargains to be had. Attractions include an awesome gift basket raffle -- with a wide selection of themed baskets. Browse our used book corner and our pre-owned jewelry table. We will also be conducting a silent auction.

We are particularly proud of our Artisan's Corner, offering one-of-a-kind items, all handmade by our own Community Church Crafters. This group works tirelessly all year to bring you custom-designed one-of-a-kind items including handmade soaps, photography, note cards, scarves, hats and mittens, unique ornaments and home decorations. The homemade jams and pickles are always in high demand and sell out quickly.

The Artisan's Corner is a great place to find unique gifts for holiday giving.

Visit our Church Mouse Boutique for fine gift collectables.

If you build up an appetite shopping, there will be baked goods to buy and you can join us in the Vestry where we will host our delicious ham luncheon, roasted potatoes, mac-n-cheese, green beans and carrots along with warm buttered rolls complete with ice cream berry sundae dessert. New this year, we will offer hot soups to go.

There will be plenty of children's activities at the Christmas fair. Our younger guests are invited to decorate a gingerbread house, have their faces painted and seek out bargains at the "Children's Only Gift Shop" where all guests under the age of 12 may purchase gifts for their family members at kid-friendly prices.

Santa will be joining us from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.; be sure to stop by and say hello and have your picture taken with him.

Mark your calendar for a day of Christmas activities, homemade foods and holiday shopping. The Pepperell Community Church is located at Three Townsend Street, directly across from the Town Hall.

We hope you'll join us.
