Twas the night before Art and Craft Fair, when all through the Center. The tables were arranged and sprinkled with glitter.
Booths were arranged around the center with care, In hopes that holiday shoppers soon would be there;
The guild ladies were nestled all snug in their beds, As visions of their sugar cookies danced in their heads;
We closed all the curtains, and the staff took a nap. The next morning they rose; each wearing their holiday cap.
When out in the lot there arose such a clatter, Keith sprang from the counter to see what was the matter!
Away to the door he flew like a flash, Unlocked the doors, and let in the mass!
The shoppers in a line, heal to toe, Their teeth all a chatter as they got their hot cocoa.
What to their wondering eyes should appear, But a handmade silver necklace and jewelry for your ears.
With a hot cup of cider, take a long sip. You picked out the painting perfect for Nick.
They wrapped it in paper and hand-lettered his name, There’s something for everyone, no piece is the same.
There’re drawings on paper! Paintings and pots. Jams, jellies, jewelry, and hand-knitted socks.
From the base of the stage to the ceiling so tall, There are gifts piled up made for you all!
We have one-of-a-kind gifts for both girls and their guys. When other shoppers are there, you smile and say hi.
Pick up your bags and buy an ornament or two, With a car full of gifts – for your sweetie and you.
And then in a sprinkling, snow fell on the roof; Holiday season is here and this is the proof.
The shoppers drove off with their bundles of presents, And turned back around just to go back for seconds.
The gifts were all sold and we turned out the lights; Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night!
The Art Center welcomes everyone to this year’s Holiday Art and Craft Fair the weekend before Thanksgiving. This is The Art Center’s second largest annual fundraiser.
