Craft fair's proceeds to benefit Chesapeake High School band



MAKE A QUICK TRIP to your favorite automated teller machine before visiting Chesapeake High School Band Boosters' sixth annual craft fair from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. tomorrow.

The handiwork of more than 200 artisans will be on sale, with something for just about everyone on your list.

Parents can shop uninterrupted by using the free child care service. For a small fee, children age 4 and older can create a Christmas craft item or decorate a painter's cap.

Hungry shoppers can munch on pit beef sandwiches, crab cakes, burgers, hot dogs, pizza and nachos. Hot and cold drinks and homemade baked goodies also will be sold.

Band members also will be taking orders for citrus fruit for delivery early next month.

Admission to the fair is free. Visitors are asked to bring a can of food that will be donated to the Mount Carmel United Methodist Church food pantry.

Proceeds from the fair will be used to help purchase instruments, music and uniforms for the Chesapeake High marching band.
