Another great event for a great cause!


What would life be like without volunteers? In places like St. Maries, we may never know. This time it’s the St. Maries Catholic Ladies.

The group has organized its pre-holiday luncheon and bazaar for many years. The annual Catholic Ladies Bazaar returns Friday, Nov. 2. The lunch of hot, homemade soup and chowder, salad and dessert will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and costs $5.

Money from the event is used for charitable causes in the community as well as projects at the church.

“Every lady in our church family helps us out,” longtime member Leslie Crane said.

In addition to lunch, the bazaar will include baked goods, craft items, used items and a Christmas boutique. Mrs. Crane said the bazaar usually opens before lunch is served. It’s a great chance to enjoy a home-cooked meal and get some Christmas shopping done all during the lunch hour Friday.

“We have some people who will drop stuff by and do their shopping first thing in the morning,” she said. “A lot of people are on their way to work and they can’t get away during the day. Everything usually winds down around 1:30 p.m.”

There will also a raffle.

“We will have tickets available at the door,” Mrs. Crane said. “People will choose which drawing they want their tickets entered in.”

Prizes include a Christmas-themed gift basket, a $50 gift certificate from the Chamber of Commerce, a mystery money box, a table runner, a Cabela’s 24-can cooler with refreshments inside and a metal nativity set.
