Craft Fair Gets Underway Saturday

September 28, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Shorter days, cooler temperatures and the St. Boniface Fall Festival Craft and Home Products Fair …. all sure signs that fall is here.

This Saturday, vendors will be filling the St. Boniface Auditorium and the church basement, displaying and selling their wares. Doors open at 10 a.m. for the public with the festival officially ending at 4:30 p.m.. With seventy-seven booths available for shoppers, there truly will be something for every person on your Christmas, birthday and anniversary gift list. And don’t forget yourself!

Co-chair of the annual event, Margaret Jensen, commented on the variety available this year. “We have fourteen new crafters and vendors,” she noted. These include two authors, one new cookbook and two new home-based businesses. Jensen co-chairs the festival, now in its thirty-second year, with Linda Kerkman.

This year features every booth space reserved. The booths are set up in the St. Boniface Auditorium AND in the St. Boniface church basement so shoppers want to be sure to visit both locations – less than one half a block apart.

As in past year’s, vendors travel quite a few miles (easily up to 100 miles) to participate in the fair and items are consistently of the highest quality. Of the booths this year, eleven feature local vendors and two are from South Dakota.

Among some of the items are wood crafts, polymer clay figurines/jewelry, holiday decorations, afghans, cutting boards, embroidered clothing, crocheted items, doilies, hand-crafted furniture, frames, hand-thrown pottery, iron garden décor, ornaments, fabric crafts, gemstone items, doll clothing, potholders, table runners, casserole carriers, quilts & quilted items, coasters, towels, garlands, ceramics, hand made jewelry, baby items, quilt racks, wooden toy corrals & farm items, aprons, trash holders, dolls, blankets, shelves, books, doll furniture, rock items, birdhouses and much more!

Home-based products to be featured include Mountain Man Nuts, Partylite Gifts, Pampered Chef, Tupperware, Scentsy Wickless Candles, Tastefully Simple, Watkins Products, MaryKay, Celebrating Home, Arm Candy Purses, Usborne Books and More, Elgin Young N Lively Community Cookbook (taking orders and selling baked goods from the book), Silpada Designs Jewelry and Gurrlie Girl.

No shopping experience is complete without food! Elgin is know for its great cooks and the St. Boniface Altar Society will step to the plate with their lunch stand being operated in the auditorium.  Shoppers can enjoy a lunch of soups, sandwiches, desserts, pies and soft drinks. Set aside some time to browse, eat and buy this Saturday in Elgin.

Wolfpack Pounds Osmond 40 to 6

September 22, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

OSMOND — On a chilly, damp night, the Wolfpack were ‘hot’ on both sides of the ball as they avenged a loss to Osmond last season with a 40 to 6 over the Tigers.

Osmond, who dominated the line of scrimmage one year ago, had no such luck on this night as the Wolfpack dominated every phase of the game in producing the lop-sided victory.

It was ‘homecoming night’ for the Tigers, but they were able to give their fans only one moment to cheer and that came in the latter stages of the game.

The teams traded possessions to open the game before the Wolfpack offense kicked it into high gear.

After Evan Parks recovered a fumble, giving the Wolfpack the ball in Tigers’ territory, it took just two plays to light up the scoreboard. Quarterback Nick Heithoff, alternating with Ross Schindler at the position, hooked up along the left sideline with Nash Schindler who beat Tiger defenders to the endzone for a 30-yard touchdown.
