Cataline Craft Fair hub of student fundraising

Fair runs Sunday, Nov. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Several charming, youthful faces greeted visitors coming into the Cataline Craft fair on Nov. 25.

The craft sale is an annual fundraiser for the school.

One particular table, stationed right at the front, displayed dozens of colourful cards, selling them for a dollar a piece.

“They are for getting enough money for a field trip,” said Anthony Ronalds, a Grade 3 student in Ms. Fushtey’s class.

The students are fundraising for a trip to the Xatsull Heritage Village in the spring.

“We get to sleep in tepees,” said Kael Fulton, another student obviously excited for the trip.

His classmate, Maxx Hilton, says it took maybe a day to create the cards.

Another student, Mason Tugnum, took care to point out his card.

“Mine is the most decorated one right at the front,” he said.

The cards come in a variety of holiday themes: snowmen, snowflakes, presents, and even a frozen waterfall.

Logan Sache, another student guarding the display, said his included a Christmas tree.

While the cards won’t be on display during Sunday’s craft sale at Cataline, Ms. Fushtey said that anyone interested in buying a card and supporting the field trip is able to buy them directly from the school as supplies last.

The boys were among many young faces at the Cataline fair, and only one booth of many spread around the school.

There’s still time to check out the other booths as the Cataline Craft Fair will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26.
