The St. James Lions Club will be holding its annual fall craft show on Saturday, September 14, and the club hopes to offer a wide variety of crafts for the community to view and purchase. Vendors will be set up at the Lucy Wortham James Elementary School to offer a variety of crafts and handmade items for shoppers to enjoy.
From 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., vendors will fill the big gym, the hallways, and the little gym at the elementary school. Guests will be able to view local handmade crafts and baked goods, as well as offering great gift ideas. Along with handmade crafts, there will also be direct sales vendors offering a variety of goods that shoppers can purchase.
Lions Club members will be offering breakfast in the morning and lunch throughout the day for those shopping. Door prizes will be given away every hour. Winners do not have to be present to win. The event will provide a great chance to get early holiday shopping ideas and will be a great place to get deal on a wide variety of crafts created by local crafters.
All the proceeds generated through vendor booth sales and concessions will be used by the club to continue some of the longstanding programs each year. Last year was the first craft show put on and club members have made this year bigger and better, expanding on what worked and bringing in new vendors. The event is free to enter and visitors are encouraged to sign up for door prizes as they enter the building.
The St. James Lions Club was formed in 1941 and is an active group in the community, holding programs that help locally. The club participates in many of the programs done nationally and internationally, as well as local efforts specific to this club. Local members participate each year in a scholarship program for graduating seniors, donate to the D.A.R.E. program at the elementary, provide Payer of Last Resort, which aids those needing assistance in emergencies, adopting a soldier through Tacony Manufacturing’s Adopt a Soldier annual program, and other programs as money provides. International programs the club participates in include disaster relief, measles and diabetes prevention programs, and the Eye Bank program.
