St. Jane is a week away from St. Patrick's bazaar


March 10, 1995|By PEG ADAMARCZYK

The signs of spring are everywhere you look, from the green shoots of daffodils to sports teams outside practicing.

It's one short week until St. Jane Frances Parish in Riviera Beach celebrates its 45th annual St. Patrick's Bazaar.

The school hall on St. Jane Drive will be transformed into the Emerald Isle from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. next Friday for all to enjoy. Admission is free.

Those who have loyally attended the festive event will notice a few changes, but green is still THE color, and a good time is promised to all, as long as you're folding green holds out.

For the wee folk, there will be a new assortment of games of skill and chance, milk caps on sale and crafts to buy. After 5 p.m., the bazaar shifts its appeal to attract older members of the family.

Sister Mary's Country Cupboard will be filled with homemade baked goods and other foods. A shopper's paradise, consisting of beautiful handmade crafts and decorative items, including Easter baskets, dried flower arrangements and dressed bears, will await you.

Tickets for the Winning of the Green raffle, with a $1,000 grand prize, and the Basket of Cheer raffle will be for sale.

Hungry visitors can dine on a shrimp salad platter, shrimp or tuna salad sandwiches, shrimp soup, chili dogs and sodas. Irish coffee, beer and wine will be sold in the evening. Carryout orders will be accepted by phone from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for evening pickup.

Chairwomen of the bazaar this year are Lisa Pervola and Teresa Sparklin.

"We're very happy that the entire parish and school have combined efforts to help to make this fund raiser a big success for our school," Pervola said. "We have parents, students, parish committee members, even our senior citizens, involved."
