A three-passenger Wave Runner with trailer will add some spice for Silent Auction bidders at this year’s Fall Bazaar, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Parish Church of St. Helena.
The FX High Output Wave Runner is powered by a 1052cc four-cylinder, four-stroke, 3-blade stainless steel impeller Yamaha 160hp MR-1 engine, which has 40 hours running time. To complete the package, the Port Royal Yamaha dealer is donating the trailer.
The watercraft heads an expanded Silent Auction list that will include original water colors, a landscape architecture consultation, a portrait sitting and other services, dinners and boat excursions, fine arts and antiques.
St. Helena’s trademark handmade chorister “church mice” will be on the scene, featuring the mice tucked into sardine-can “beds” — depicting “not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,” and starring the 2013 mouse, a torch bearer.
“As always we’ll have handmade Christmas decorations, gifts and foods,” says Martha Scott, who is co-chairing the event with Betty Ann Allison and Teresa Roundy.
Presented by the Parish Church Women, the bazaar benefits the church’s outreach efforts in Beaufort and around the world. It is held in the Parish House at 507 Newcastle St.
Women of St. Helena’s gather all year long to plan projects and create crafts, producing Christmas wreaths and ornaments and a wide variety of gift items. Bazaar shoppers will find the Parish House courtyard filled with plants and shrubs. Other offerings include frozen foods, baked goods, candy, linens, books and jewelry.
