Every Year my husband’s school, Seabury Hall, puts on their craft fair to raise money for financial aid. Through the years it’s just grown by leaps and bounds. With the economy the way it’s been the past couple of years, we haven’t been setting our sights too high, especially in a small community like ours. Times are tough for many. Jobs are more scarce. Incomes have been reduced. But we were amazed this year how many people turned out, how many generous donations we received for our silent and live auctions and how much each of those items brought in. My husband worked the front gate and was blown away by the increase in visitors we had just in one year. I worked in the bake sale and was amazed at how many donations we received of delicious treats from professional pastry chefs, restaurants, hotels and retail stores. Crafters came from throughout the state with their hand made items to sell.

Last year we raised a quarter of a million dollars in one day; every penny of that goes to financial aid for kids in our school.

Here’s a link to some photos from last year’s fair. Note the layered jello dessert from our dessert competition. I judge this contest every year and was really impressed by the creativity of these kids.
