There will be a craft fair held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 21 at the Waynesville Presbyterian Church, located at corner of Walnut Street and Main Street.

The church’s Craft Guild, with the help of many talented artisans of the congregation, will be selling handmade items, cakes, pies, breads, preserves and local honey.

Profits from the sales will go to a variety of local organizations. Each year, the list of organizations supported changes a little as the needs of our community change. For example, this year money was sent to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program to help rebuild after the hurricanes.
