Senior Center Happenings: 8/28/15

Our 22nd Annual Holiday Fair will be held Saturday, November 7th at the center and is always a great event. This year’s fair promises to be the best ever and we need you to be a part of it! Do you like to bake, create needlework, help in the kitchen, help sort tag sale items? We welcome new volunteers who can give just a few hours of their time. If you would like to volunteer in any way, please call Lee Canning at the senior center, 203-389-3430.

This year’s fair will feature hand-crafted items, new and slightly used costume jewelry, cookies, cakes, bread, pies and a great tag sale table. The Take A Chance Auction and the Silent Auction tables will be back again this year. Tag sale items can be dropped off at the center beginning in September. We cannot accept clothing, stuffed animals or baby equipment. We gratefully accept donations that can be sold in our tag sale table.
