Church Fair
Posted on Thursday, July 17 @ 10:19:09 CDT (6 reads)
Announcements VACATION STAYS, ONE-OF-A-KIND QUILT, LIVE ENTERTAINMENT
ARE AMONG ATTRACTIONS AT MT. WASHINGTON’S FAIR, AUG., 2

Mt. Washington, MA, July 8, 2014-There are exciting new reasons this year to check out this singular mountain town’s annual all-community event: bidding for a South Lake Tahoe vacation stay, a raffle drawing for a handmade quilt and more live entertainment, among them. The sponsor, Church of Christ Mt. Washington, distributes proceeds to a wide variety of local, national, and international secular and non-secular charities. The Fair is scheduled (rain or shine) for Saturday, Aug. 2, from 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m, at the intersection of East St. and Cross Road in Mt. Washington. (Bidding and drawings begin at 12:30 this year). Admission is free and includes a free door prize ticket. (PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED.)

High on the list of attractions are valuable auction items, including a week’s stay at a four-bedroom vacation house in South Lake Tahoe, CA, and art work by renowned local artist Morgan Bulkeley. Bulkeley shows at the Miller-Yezerski Gallery in Boston, and has been in various shows across the country.

This year, fairgoers can win a handsome twin-sized quilt, entitled “Mt. Washington Wildlife 2014,” which was created by skilled quilter Nancy Wright from the charming animal paintings of local artist Jolaine Allan. Raffle tickets ($1. each or 6/$5.) will be sold on Fair day and at Guido’s Fresh Marketplace in Great Barrington, where the quilt will be on display until the Fair.

There are lots of other opportunities to win. Visitors who buy chances for the Hospitality Raffle stand to win vouchers for dinners for two at any of nine top Berkshire restaurants or an overnight stay at the lovely Queechee Inn in Vermont. Door prize tickets will be drawn for 10 fantastic items, among them a Christmas tree from Sweet’s Tree Farm, a blueberry-themed breakfast gift basket, valued at $85; and gift certificates, one worth $85 for a consultation and treatment with respected acupuncturist Peter Goldberg. Raffle tickets also will be sold for chances to win a plane ride with pilot Phil Zogran and (for town residents only) truckloads of wood and gravel.

The stay at the South Lake Tahoe house may be redeemed any time of the year, except the week between Christmas and New Year’s. (It doesn’t include airfare, food, or incidentals.) The house, located six miles from the state line casinos, two miles from Lake Tahoe and beach, and five miles from Heavenly Ski Area, is fully furnished, has a complete kitchen, and sleeps nine.

New Fair features include a putting game for adults, as well as games for kids, and more live entertainment For the first time, Henry the Juggler, described by one critic as “mesmerizing and wonderfully funny,” will perform from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Throughout the day there’ll be opportunity for visitors to tap their feet and sing along with Sandy and Sandy, who appear regularly at Gypsy and the Red Lion, among other venues.

Admirers of the late local artist Frank Packlick, (well known for his renderings of historic buildings) will welcome the chance to obtain a print of his drawing of the Mt. Washington church. Packlick’s work appears in the LBJ Presidential Library and the personal collection of Seiji Ozawa.

Great personal and gift shopping opportunities will abound. At the Arts and Crafts table, mountain-made goods will include an array of innovative, practical, decorative and wearable items, as well as photographic art and woodwork. The Mountain Goods area will be brimming with the most popular baked goods, pickles, preserves, and granola, fresh from mountain kitchens. In addition to the latest batch of logo tees, there will be logo-bearing eco-conscious grocery bags and bibbed aprons. The Plant and Flowers table will include a selection of terrariums. The White Elephant Tent will be filled with carefully vetted treasures and books; and Second Hand Rose, with gently used clothing and accessories.

Fairgoers can rest at the tables under the trees and feast on hot food from the grill, “sloppy joes,” fresh corn, extensive salad bar selections, ice cream, tempting homemade cakes and pies, as well as coffee and soft drinks.



A week’s stay at a South Lake Tahoe, CA, house will be one of the fabulous auction items at Mt. Washington’s Fair on Aug. 2. Pictured here is the living room with stone fireplace.


Among the extraordinary raffle prizes at this year’s Mt. Washington Fair will be this handmade, twin-sized quilt made by skilled quilter Nancy Wright from the animal paintings of artist Jolaine Allan.
