Community Notebook; Ladies Guild to Host Annual Bazaar

Article excerpt

Byline: SANDY STRICKLAND

An old-fashioned Christmas is the theme of the annual holiday bazaar staged by the Ladies Guild of St. Paul's Catholic Church in Riverside this weekend. The women have been putting on the bazaar since 1922. This year's edition is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the parish hall, 2606 Forbes St.

To the tunes of Bing Crosby and Perry Como, attendees can check out handmade crafts, baked goods, antiques and "gently read" books. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.

New this year is a silent auction on Friday with items including a gourmet dinner for four, an evening at a local bed and breakfast and Park Lane jewelry. A handmade fleece throw, baskets of cheer and other items also will be raffled off.

Other new features are a caricaturist and Friday night take-out dinners provided by the St. Paul's School Parents Auxiliary.

Funds raised go toward parish needs and have included such things as furnishings, linens, replacement of a chain-link fence, re-tiling of the social hall, landscaping and renovation of the kitchen.

The sounds of 18 pianos and 200 area student pianists will be heard at the Jacksonville Music Teachers Association's Multi-Piano Festival at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. It will be at the University of North Florida's Fine Arts Center, Lazarra Hall, 4567 St. Johns Bluff Road. Tickets are $5 at the door for ages 5 and up.

Conducting will be Sandra Roberts, Sandra Stewart, Ronn Cummings and Merrill Palmer. The first festival was held in 1929.

State Sen. Steve Wise will speak on the "Importance of Early Education" at a meeting of the MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) Club from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday at Trinity Baptist Church, 800 Hammond Blvd.

It's part of MOPS International, which is geared toward moms of all types -- urban, suburban, rural, stay-at-home, employed, teen, single or married -- who share a desire to be good mothers. In addition to meetings, its resources include books, a Web site at www.mops.org and Mothering Matters magazine.
