Craft fair attracts crowd

Beta Sigma Phi is donating the proceeds from the sale to Holly Days and to The Hope Transition House

The annual Christmas Craft Sale, sponsored by Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, was a busy scene.  The generous shoppers donated $300 to Holly Days and the Hope Transition House, and the Legion upper hall was full of tables and hand-made crafts.

The generous crafters, in turn, donated prizes — won by Wendy Kraszlany,  Judy McDonald, R.Poirier, Sandra Loring, Pattie Desjardins, Sophie Kassian, Barb Lorillard, Ann Hogan, Larry Holland and Debbie Hopp.

Beta Sigma Phi is donating the proceeds from the sale to Holly Days and to The Hope Transition House.  Both groups need our compassion:  the first, because there is always a need to share our bounty with those less fortunate; and the second, because, for women leaving abusive situations, Christmas is an especially difficult time of year.

We extend our thanks to the Legion for donating $200 of our hall rental fee to Holly Days to make even more impact on that group, and to all the holiday shoppers for making this such a successful event.

Linda McMullan,

Hope, BC
