Annual Christmas Fair Saturday at St. Francis Church

  • The ladies at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Athol were able to collect greens for their Christmas Greens baskets before the big snow storms hit this past week. For several years, Marie Shatos and Veronica Warren have been collecting local greens and red berries to make holiday baskets that can be used either outside or in the home. The baskets will be available at the Annual St Francis Christmas Fair and Bake Sale on Saturday, Dec. 7 in the church hall from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. submitted photo
