The Sugar Loaf United Methodist Church will hold its 97th Annual Church Fair on Saturday, September 7th, rain or shine. The historic Greek revival church is located on Kings Highway in the hamlet of Sugar Loaf. The Fair will open at 10:00 a.m. with the traditional ringing of the bell and will end at 4:00 p.m. In past years, the line of fairgoers has stretched out to the highway as people eagerly wait to check out the bargains in the white elephant booth, buy a delicious pie, or purchase a hand woven rug.
Food is the main attraction for many of those attending the Fair and this year will certainly offer something for everyone’s taste. There will be hundreds of delicious pies along with home-baked breads, cakes, and cookies. Another booth will offer homemade candy, jams and jellies, and gifts in a jar. Sandwiches will be available for lunch at the snack bar.
The Church has a very active and dedicated group of crafters who work throughout the year making each of the items for sale at the Fair. Old-fashioned fancywork will include quilts, hand knit sweaters, American Girl doll clothes and doll furniture, baby items, and denim rag rugs. There will be a nice selection of Christmas and Halloween decorations, toys for children, and items for home and garden.
The white elephant booth is sure to offer many “treasures’’ for very little money.
Shoppers always enjoy browsing through the boxes of used books.
All items for sale are handcrafted and homemade by members and friends of Sugar Loaf Methodist Church and all proceeds support the ministries of the Church. Come visit the Fair and see why this traditional event has endured for ninety-seven years!
