Holiday craft and greens fair

Immerse yourself in a feast for the senses at the 11th annual indoor Holiday Craft & Greens Fair on Saturday, Nov. 17, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Hosted by the Townsend Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, this bright and colorful fair is a popular stop-over for early holiday shoppers due to the delightful wares of many gifted independent crafters, freshly made greens baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas, home-made apple and pecan pies, as well as a variety of other home-made baked goods, you can also bid on a wide variety of themed gift baskets.

After you have taken a break for lunch at the Jingle Bells Bistro, you can go on to shop for books and take a chance on winning $300 in our cash raffle -- you can't win if you don't play. Before you leave, don't forget to stop by and visit with Santa who is very excited to spend time with the kids before he has to head back to the North Pole.

Come and join the fun and festivities at 3 Brookline St., Townsend, where there's something for everyone!
