The United Church on Saturday, May 27, donned a festive look as it held its annual spring fair with a variety of goods to choose from.

With a bouncy castle just outside, and the weather being perfect for a summer’s day, kids had a great time playing on the slide and enjoying the wonderful sunshine that Saturday brought our way.

“The fair is part of our community outreach, a fun event, creating awareness of the church in the community and is a great fundraiser for us,” said Betty Birch, one of the church members.

All items on sale had been donated by church parish and members.

“The pies that we had on sale had been made over three days by members of the church,” Birch added. “The concession too was offered by the committee of church members, and bout 275 pies were made and sold.”

Although the exact amount of funds raised are not yet known, Birch said this annual event usually raises $3,000 to $4,000, approximately.

“We use the funds for basic operations and maintenance of the church,” Birch commented.

The fair had a steady stream of people, according to Birch and the bouncy castle was a “huge draw” for the kids.
