Harvest Fair: A Gathering of Artisans TODAY and TOMORROW!

St Nicholas Episcopal Church presents Harvest Fair: a Gathering of Artisans
It's TODAY! The First Annual Harvest Fair: A Gathering of Artisans starts NOW at St Nicholas Episcopal Church. Find treasures and beautiful decorative items for your home, jewelry, handmade soy candles and soaps, and Christmas decorations galore. There's a raffle table, a selection of delicious baked goods, and much more, and if you're hungry, there's a big pot of chili on the stove, sloppy Joes, cake, and coffee for purchase. Proceeds will benefit programs here at St Nicholas Episcopal Church, and there are lots of great vendors offering wonderfully creative hand-made items besides.

OKTOBERFEST!!!

Mark your calendars for Saturday October 11th- it’s time for some St. Nicholas Family Fun!

Mt. Prospect’s Fall Festival/Oktoberfest is a wonderful annual event with activities for children from 1pm to 4pm and a BIG Oktoberfest party from 4pm to 11pm.

Let’s get together for brats, schnitzel, German beer, strudel, polkas, sing-along, chicken dancing and some good old “Gemutlichkeit” : )

We’ll have balloons and/or banners to help you find our “Stammtisch” (special table) and we’ll invite our friends from St. John’s to join us there.

We can meet up at the fest around 6:00pm and we’ll have Sign-Up Sheet for a carpool that will leave St Nick’s after the 4:00 mass if anyone is interested.

PROST!!
