2018 holiday crafts fair set for Nov. 18

CANAJOHARIE — The Arkell Museum and Canajoharie Library’s 2018 holiday arts and crafts fair will be held on Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Applications to be a vendor of handcrafted or homemade arts and crafts are due by Oct. 31 by visiting the Arkell website.

The event will feature artisan craft vendors, the library’s used book sale, the Palatine Literary Society luncheon to benefit its award to a graduating senior, a bake sale by area local Girl Scouts, free family activities, and a children’s toy and winter clothing drive to benefit the Salvation Army Toys for Tots program.

Arkell will also sponsor a basket raffle to support Haven of Hope Farm Residence, which provides transitional housing and job training in a healthy and nurturing environment for women in need and their children.

Admission to the fair will be free, and admission to the Arkell Museum will be discounted to $5.
