Sedgwick Elementary School craft fair
The Sedgwick Elementary School craft fair, now in its fifth year, was started by Judy Dannenberg, a Sedgwick Elementary School grandparent, when budget cuts left school computers outdated. “I thought, ‘let’s have a craft fair,’” she said during this year’s fair, held on November 17. “It’s a great school, great staff, and great kids.” Funds raised this year are earmarked for new playground equipment, said principal Donald Buckingham.
A time to shop and catch up with friends
Shoppers browse tables filled with gifts, holiday decorations, treats to eat (or use as stocking stuffers) and still find time to catch up with friends and neighbors at the Sedgwick Elementary School craft fair. The annual fundraiser helps fill the gap in a tight school budget.
