Spring Craft Show at St. Michael CHS is this weekend!


Come out this weekend to support the Spring Craft Show at St. Michael Catholic High School, which will be the first of its kind for the school. This completely volunteer-run initiative will not only raise important funds for the School Council, but will also provide an opportunity for many students to earn their mandatory community involvement hours required for graduation.

School Council Vice Chair Sharon Roche reports that the funds raised from past Christmas shows have been used to fund athletic

uniforms, STEM supplies, busing for field trips, scripts and licensing for drama productions, and to offset costs parents and guardians must pay for things such as competitions, field trips, and education workshops.

“As this Spring Craft Show will be the first of its kind at St. Michael, it will follow the successful format of our Christmas sale, offering over 120 tables of goods, door prizes and much much more,” Sharon told the Times.

Admission to the event is only $2 (or a donation of a canned food item). Sharon credits Katy Ferguson for the success of past events, and for planning the upcoming Craft Show this weekend. “She is the Chair of the St Michael

School Council, and the Christmas Craft Show and the upcoming inaugural Spring Craft Show are a labour of love for her,” said Sharon. “The dedication of Katy and the team have led our shows to be well-received and attended by vendors and patrons alike. In fact, we often have a waiting list for vendors due to our limited space. Another benefit is that this event permits us to give back to the community by collecting donations for the food bank, and providing tables to community groups at no charge.”

St. Michael CHS is located at 2755 County Rd 43. The Sale will run on Saturday, April 27 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. Support local students by attending this great event!
