Autumn days to celebrate

Celebrate fall with home cooking and locally made treasures at the annual Harvest Faire at the community center.

The Saturday, October 8 event held in the community center will feature the work of local artisans, designers, artists and fine collectibles. “I have eight vendors so far and could probably handle another six,” said organizer Jessica McVey. Vendors will offer a wide variety of local creations, including oil paintings, textiles, household linens, photographs, jewelry, herbal products and local fashion creations. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Table fees from vendors will benefit Circle of Care’s continuing mission to provide services that will help local residents stay in their homes as they age or recover from surgery or illness.

Circle of Care volunteers will be selling homemade soup and baked goods during the event, and are looking for bakers to help them out. Baked good donations can be dropped off at the community center on Friday, October 7 from 4 to 7 p.m. or before 10 a.m. on October 8. Contact Galen Wood at 360/945-1350 or galen@point-alliance.com for more information.

The Friends of the Point Roberts Library will add a mini book sale to the event, focussing on a good novel to curl up with during chilly weather, as well as DVDs and CDs to fill those lengthening fall evenings.
