Many community members came out and showed their support for Union Elementary School during the school’s annual Craft Show at Poland High School Nov. 3.

“This is our ninth annual Holiday Shoppe craft and vendor show. It all benefits Union PTO. We use this show to help raise money for all types of things that the schools may need throughout the year. Everything goes back to the kids. I think it’s a good fun day for everyone and it gets everyone ready for the holiday season. Participating in this event is very rewarding and everyone enjoys it,” said PTO committee member Paula Blakeman.

Hundreds of vendors selling everything from jewelry to Christmas decorations lined the gymnasium while participants purchased items. The event also included a host of food and many opportunities for winning prizes during raffle games. Students and their families enjoyed the event and even Principal Michael Masucci was impressed with all the support the craft show generated.

“The Holiday Shoppe’s roots are in the community, but it has now stretched into other communities and even states. It has become so successful and respected by vendors that it seems to become more successful each year. It is like a well-oiled machine. The PTO’s Holiday Shoppe is, without question, one of the most successful events I have ever been part of. I say that knowing that I am a very small part of this event. To say that it runs efficiently would be an understatement. I cannot say enough nice things about the Holiday Shoppe’s Committee,” said Masucci.

The event not only provided delicious treats and a variety of items, it also gave families an opportunity to mingle with friends and neighbors as well.

“I absolutely love it. It’s the second year that I’ve come here with my grandson and it’s a really nice thing to do. I love seeing people that I haven’t seen in awhile and it lets the students know that we’re here for them,” said Patty DePinto.
