The ECW had their traditional Christmas luncheon at LePetite Auberge in Fredericksburg with 10 people in attendance:
The ECW took their supply of Christmas ornaments that people had donated, their own fundraisers (cookbook, ornament and mug) and set up at the Bowling Green Harvest Festival on Oct. 19, 2013 for the day
A number of people helped - Hugh and Joe B supplying the trucks, workers Eunice, Betty, Cookie, Andrea, Marion, Mary Ann and Catherine. Others came by and purchased, such as Bill Wick
This is quite an undertaking. Eunice said trucks have a designated time to pull in and put the merchandise on the street (7:45pm) and then Main Street is closed. She said the number of vendors have increased on both sides of the street. Thus competition was stiff with the increased number of vendors. Everyone seemed to have a great day though the weather turned rainy for a time by noon.
Join the ECW at the Bowling Green Harvest Festival on Oct. 19, 2013 beginning at 9am
The ECW will sell our new St Peter’s Christmas ornament and mug and also the Christmas items that we donates during the Harvest Festival in Bowling Green on October the 19th. Here is a picture of their gifts.
