Eight is Likely Not Enough

The old saw contends that Eight is Enough, but I'm guessing that your eighth annual invitation to one of the biggest and best Arts & Crafts shows in the entire neighborhood will probably not be your last such invitation!

The St. Joseph Lions Club returns Saturday, November 2nd, to the St. Joseph High School Field House to host their annual extravaganza of all things arts and crafts.  It's the 8th Annual Arts & Crafts Show, and unlike many other shows in the region it is huge, but still all indoors.  Vern Breuker, who continues in his role as event organizer, says, "While craft shows are common in many communities, the Lions have brought an added dimension to the concept of traditional hand-made items sold by crafters in the open air.  We have taken the concept of a craft show and made it into a family entertainment day.  In addtion to showcasing more than 100 artists and crafters, the addition of face painting for kids and raffles for adults brings a dimension rarely found elsewhere."

The show is always conducted on the first Saturday in November, and carries a bargain-basement admission price of just $1.00 per person with all proceeds going to the worthy projects in the community sponsored by the Lions Club including such things as the Camp Leo Summer Camp for children with special needs, swings at the beach and on the St. Joe Bluff, eye exams and glasses for the less fortunate among us, and a host of other similar benefits to the community.  

The St. Joe Lions have been serving the community for more than 80-years.  

Saturday's event will run from 9am until 4pm at the Field House adjacent to the High School and its football stadium.
