It was a great start to the Christmas season! Trinity United Hall was packed with shoppers as they perused the wide diversity of vendors at the Annual Craft and Bake Sale sponsored by local crafters. Organizer Joyce Casement was thrilled by the participation of the community in supporting our local crafters and the obvious fun that everyone was having. Stay tuned to this column for more exciting events throughout the next two months as we ring in the Holiday Season.
