A long-standing fall tradition returns to Plainview Saturday when The Episcopal Church of St. Margaret holds its 16th Annual Fall Fair.
What sets this event apart is the range of family options available in a picturesque setting on the church grounds, located on Washington Avenue.
Organizers promise quality vendors, food, children’s games, a flea market with unique finds and a large selection of collectible dolls.
There will also be an exhibition by the Long Island Ship Model Society.
"Our fair is well known for our homemade baked goods
and take-home dishes, as well as handcrafts, raffle baskets and an excellent
selection of prizes from community businesses," said Barbara Hagen, a member of the church's vestry and one of the organizers.
The grand raffle drawing has a first prize of $500 cash; second prize is an iPad Mini; and third prize is a Kindle Fire.
Jennifer Andrews-Weckerly and the church’s parishioners will be on hand to greet
the community on the stunning church grounds at 1000
Washington Ave., located just east of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Community Park and St. Pius X R.C. Church.
The fair hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 29). Plenty of parking is available.
St. Margaret’s has been active in the Plainview-Old Bethpage community for 50 years and works with local programs to feed the hungry, especially St. Ignatius Food Pantry, The INN and Food Not Bombs.
The church's "grow-to-give" garden, visible on Washington Avenue, adds fresh, nutritious vegetables to its year-round offerings. The congregation gives 10 percent of all net proceeds for our fundraisers back to the community at large.For more information, visit www.stmargaretepiscopal.org or call (516) 692-5268.
