The Sugar Loaf United Methodist Church, located at 1387 Kings Hwy. in Sugar Loaf will host its 103rd annual Church Fair on Sat., Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine. For so many people the annual fair has been a day to visit with friends and neighbors and to support the “community” church.
Good things to eat have been a big part of every Fair and this year will certainly offer something for everyone’s taste. There will be dozens of homemade delicious pies along with home-baked breads, cakes, cookies, homemade candy, jams and jellies, and gifts in a jar. Sandwiches and homemade chili will be available for lunch at the snack bar.
The Church has an active and dedicated group of crafters who work throughout the year, making each of the items for sale at the Fair. Old-fashioned fancywork will include hand knit sweaters and accessories, American Girl doll furniture, Noah’s arks, baby items, and denim rag rugs. There will be a nice selection of holiday decorations for Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Christmas.
The pet shop will feature dog sweaters and toys for the four legged friends. The white elephant booth is sure to offer many treasures for very little money and shoppers always enjoy browsing through the boxes of used books. Items for sale are handcrafted and homemade by members and friends of the Sugar Loaf United Methodist Church and all proceeds from the Fair support the ministries of the Church.
Come visit the fair and see why this traditional event has endured for more than one hundred years. For more information, call Jane Gareiss 986-4557.
