It's Show Time - June 2004 The third annual Grand Crafts on the Island will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 26-27, 2004 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Town Commons. The first show was part of the town’s sesquicentennial celebration. It was such a big success, that organizers decided to make it an annual event.
The committee consists of Chairperson Robin Swedish, Kathy Smith, Barb Wilson, Mary Neuhaus and Sue Berger. It is an independent, non-profit group who would like to provide Grand Islanders with a fun-filled weekend of arts and crafts, along with great food and music.
Crafts will include fine and funky jewelry, soaps & lotions, wood carving, metal sculpture, painted glass and pottery, pet items, fiber and clothing, and much more.
Food vendors will make sure no one goes away hungry. Tim Horton’s will be there with coffee and doughnuts, American Legion members will be cooking hot dogs, and the Pie Ladies from Island Presbyterian Church will be selling homemade pies. Many other Island groups will be there with a wide variety of tasty treats, and who can forget those blooming onions from last year?
Music will be provided by Jerry D’Amico with his band, "Brimstone" for your listening and dancing pleasure. There will also be hands on space for children with a variety of crafts, bubbles, tattoos, face painting, hair wraps, and much more.
"Come join us for a fun weekend. There’s plenty of parking and no admission fee. It doesn’t get any better than this!"
