Calvary Baptist Christmas Bazaar re-opens Saturday, December 21 from 9 am to 2 pm.
By all accounts, on November 23 we had one of the most successful and meaningful Christmas Bazaars in recent years! It was so nice, we’ve decided to do it twice by reopening the Christmas Bazaar on Saturday, December 21 from 9 am - 2 pm. There are plenty of last minute Christmas gifts to find, mouth-watering baked goods and of course our world famous hand-made pierogies and home-made soups. Spread the word!
