Bazaar to highlight St. Helena Tricentennial

2 mins read

A special Tricentennial booth will be featured Nov. 5 at this year’s Fall Bazaar presented by the Women of the Parish Church of St. Helena in Beaufort.
The church’s tricentennial year is 2012, just one year after Beaufort’s 300th birthday. The booth will provide information on the church’s planned Tricentennial events, which will be open to the public.  Limited-edition commemorative tumblers and Christmas ornaments and a CD produced by St. Helena’s choirs will be sold, with proceeds going to defray tricentennial expenses.
The bazaar, which benefits the church’s outreach efforts in Beaufort and around the world, also includes a silent auction of 300 unique items ranging from excursions and restaurant dinners to fine art and furs, sailboats and furniture.
St. Helena’s famous handmade “church mice” will return this year and will be available for purchase when the doors open at 9 a.m. on Saturday.  However, mouse manufacturers warn that these popular rodents often sell out early.
This bazaar will be open on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Parish House at 507 Newcastle St. in downtown Beaufort. A Bazaar Preview will be held Friday, Nov. 4, from 5 to 7 p.m. Nothing is sold on Friday (although Silent Auction bids are accepted).  The preview is for fellowship and an early look at bazaar offerings.
In addition to Tricentennial souvenirs and church mice, Bazaar shoppers will find baked goods, candy, frozen foods, books, gifts, jewelry, plants, Christmas decorations, a pet boutique and Bargain Box.
Contact the church office at 843-522-1712 or Bazaar Chairman Annie Pollak at 843-538-6497 for more information. Or visit www.sthelenas1712.org.
