HARPSTER Harpster’s 28th annual Christmas Craft Fair is set for Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Harpster Community Building, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Community members will be selling hot lunch and pies/desserts as a fund-raiser for the building upkeep and insurance. There will be two drawings that are also fund-raisers: one is the “50-50” drawing, where the person chooses a number from 1 to 150, for $1 each number; then, at 2:30 p.m., one number is drawn and that person wins half of the money and the building gets the other half. The other drawing is called “pick-a-prize.” There are approximately 15 different prizes, tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Tickets are placed with the prize the buyer would like to win.
