Union Bay Christmas Fair was a great sucess. We made $576 ($320 for angels).There was a constant stream of people passing our table, admiring the angels and other crafts and chatting about Africa and SLF.

We love coming to Union Bay fairs. Smiling men help unload the car and carry the boxes inside to the tables. They then go and park the car for us. Fantastic service!

Thank you Union Bay Community Club.

We netted under $100, after paying $20 for the smallest table we've ever had, so we went away somewhat disappointed.
