The Christmas Craft Fair and Bazaar was very well attended both Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 5-6), and there was nothing but positive feedback from the vendors and the shoppers.
A great selection of wares was available; there was something for everyone: home canning, baking, jewelry, spices, wooden toys, hand-painted glasses, ornaments, handicrafts and much more.
Thanks goes to everyone for working so hard to make it all happen and to those who made donations for the door prizes.
The arena was also kept very busy as on Nov. 5 was a training day for sharpening the Zamboni blades at Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena.
On Nov. 6, there were two tournaments that took most of the day, finally wrapping up the afternoon with the public skating sessions.
Hot water is now available for showers thanks to Percy Ogden and his crew for installing the new water tanks.
I have heard that a $500 donation was received from one of the men’s hockey teams towards that project, and it’s appreciated.
