Owego Rotary to host 6th Annual Arts and Crafts Fair

Just in time for the Holiday Season! The Owego Rotary Club is pleased to announce its 6th annual Arts and Crafts Fair on the first Sunday in November, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Owego Elks Lodge located at 223 Front St. in Owego N.Y.

This year they have a wonderful, unique variety of artists and craft persons offering their work for sale. Choose from paintings, photography, many different types of jewelry, woodworking, textiles, soaps, creams, Alpaca products, cat toys, portraits on ornaments, face painting, soy candles, birdhouses, antiques, repurposed vintage furniture, and a variety of delicious home baked goods including Finnish breads and much more. There will be activities for the kids, and this event is free and open to the public.

Participating businesses will help support the international eradication of Polio.  All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Rotary Polio Plus Campaign.  Every child deserves the right to walk, run, and play without fear of paralysis.  Although Polio is largely unknown in the industrialized nations, it is a disease that still robs children of that right in other parts of the world.

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) is committed to achieving a polio-free world. Rotary is a spearheading partner in the GPEI along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has invested in the eradication of polio and is working closely with the GPEI. The goal of the initiative is the global certification of polio eradication.
