Sterling Blog: Craft Show This Weekend

It may be November, but Project Graduation is already thinking about June. Park View’s Project Graduation is how our community shows high school graduates how proud we are of them. Not only does this group fund an all night celebration for our students, it also provides scholarships, gifts, and even school supplies for those going to college. It’s our whole town wishing graduates well as they start the next chapter in their lives.

To fund all this, Project Graduation hosts two craft fairs a year—and the next one is Nov. 11. From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., more than 70 artists, crafters, and vendors will fill Park View’s gym and lobby with unique and wonderful items. Whether you’re looking for the perfect holiday gift (it never hurts to start early) or you’re just wanting something nice for you (I’m not one to judge), this is the perfect place to start looking.

After all, you’re doing it for the kids, right?

Also this Saturday, St. Matthew Episcopal Church, at 201 East Frederick Drive, will be holding a Community Lunch from noon until 2 p.m., and you池e all invited to this Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings.

No need for reservations or an RSVP, just show up for a good meal with good music and crafts for the kids. Show up a wee bit early at 11 a.m. and you're invited to a Veterans Day Service with a special guest speaker, Lt. Col. (Ret) Glenn Schiraldi Ph.D. Want to do more than just eat? St. Matt is always looking for volunteers to help with these community lunches. Simply reach out to the church at stmtts.org.
And yes, we're still on Saturday, Inferior Nerve, a local non profit is sponsoring a coat and winter clothing drive for the families of Loudoun County Public Schools. Just drop new or gently used items off at the Sterling Community Center on Enterprise Street and Inferior Nerve will make sure someone in need is warmed by your generosity. The organization will also be hosting a follow up at Claude Moore Community Center on Nov. 18. To learn more about this really wonderful organization, visit them online at inferiornerve.org

This weekend, Sterling Playmakers open their fall musical event, “Man of La Mancha,” featuring the unforgettable songs of “Impossible Dream” and “To Each His Dulcinea” at Seneca Ridge Middle School directed by the incomparable Kathy Bleutge. Show times are 8 p.m. Nov. 10, and 11, and 2 p.m. On Nov. 12. Tickets are on sale now at SterlingPlaymakers.com or they’ll be available at the door.
