Guilford Fun Fest 2012: Celebrating Our Heritage

By: Wilma Felton-Gray

GUILFORD – Now known as the Guilford Community FunFest, it is hoped that this year is bigger and better than ever before. This year we are celebrating our heritage. That takes into account each of the churches, the Klee house, the Fire Dept. the Historical Society and J’s Quickway. They are what makes our community a special place to live. We need to support them so we keep our community alive and well by our involvement and participation.

You won’t believe all that is in store for you on Saturday from 9 in the morning all the way through until 10 p.m. Yes that’s right! 10 at night. However, most of the activities take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Included in that time frame are, the Crafters and Vendors lining Main St. and the Methodist Church. Get your Christmas shopping done early with wonderful hand crafted items including jewelry, wood crafts and Indian crafted items and much more. Along the same line at the Methodist Church the Church Ladies have organized a White Elephant sale, basket extravaganza and homemade candy sale. There will also be a quilt show there. So, bring your hand crafted quilts or antique quilt and description and/or history thereof and be eligible for a prize for the most favorite quilt.

It’s not without saying, that the Guilford Garage/Lawn sales play an important part in the usual community day events and this year is the same. So be prepared to wander the streets and the side streets of Guilford. Anyone who needs a table having a sale contact Elaine Pikul at 895-6325. As you wander and browse listen to the music of Gary Jennings, International Singer who will be located across from the Methodist Church.

A cancellation stamp has been designed for the day. Take your letters and cards to the Guilford Post Office window to receive the special Community Day Fun-Fest cancellation stamp featuring a Tractor with farm scene. Hours are 8-12. The Guilford Carry-On 4-H Club will be selling Popcorn, snow cones and Taco’s in a Bag at the Post office. In the PO parking lot will be a school bus. This is the “STUFF A BUS.” Needed to stuff that bus are new items paper, pencils, pens, notebooks and any item that you may think a child needs to start school. Cash is appreciated as well.
