Traditions are years in the making and this Thursday a journey towards keeping a local tradition alive and well will reach the 86-year-mark. Thursday will play host to the 86th annual St. Boniface Thanksgiving Bazaar. While tweaks are made each year, this event is appears destined to be part of Elgin’s future for some time.
What began as a simple church dinner has grown into a much-anticipated event for residents of Elgin, alumns of Elgin and numerous people in the surrounding areas.
The numbers of those who played an active part in the first several years of the Thanksgiving Bazaar are small but for some Elgin residents, those early years bring back precious memories.
