Third annual Michaelmas Fair set

NORMAN — St. Michael’s Episcopal Church has set Oct. 6 for its third annual Michaelmas Country Fair. Parishioners welcome the public to join them at the free event between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The annual event is a day for the entire family with children’s games, horseback riding, music, crafts, a pansy sale and a jail. St. Mike’s bakers are gearing up for the bake sale featuring a cookie buffet — where fairgoers may select and “build their own dozen” cookies to take home.

This year’s raffle items include a basketball signed by Whitney Hand, a football signed by Landry Jones and another signed by Jason White, Steve Owens and Billy Sims. Other raffle items include an Oklahoma wine basket, manicure/pedicure, a golf package for four rounds of golf at Silverhorn Golf Club, a Montana sliver belt buckle, a handmade Noah doll, Oklahoma City Thunder T-shirts and more.

Raffle tickets may be purchased in advance by visiting the church office or they can be purchased at the door the day of the fair.

A DJ will be on hand to provide music, a flea market will be ready for bargain hunters and lunch will be available for a moderate charge. Clowns near Highway 9 will direct fair goers toward the church, 1601 W. Imhoff Road.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the parish maintenance fund as well as outreach ministries in the Norman community.

For more information, call the St. Michael’s office at 321-8951 or visit the church page on Facebook.
