SACKVILLE, N.B. – Tantramar Regional High School will be hosting its 15th annual Christmas craft sale on Saturday, Nov. 18.
The craft sale is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a wide variety of items made by 65 local artisans. There is something for everyone on one’s Christmas shopping list. The event begins at 10 a.m and ends at 3 p.m., with a $4 admission fee. Children 10 and under are admitted free of charge. Each paid entry is also entered for a chance to win a turkey basket, complete with all the fixings and even something for the sweet tooth. Additionally, there will be a canteen on site with homemade chili and rolls, as well as sandwiches. The craft sale is one of the biggest fundraisers for the school, and all proceeds go toward funding school activities. It is a great way to get into the holiday spirit, and to help support the school. There is no better way to spend a Saturday.
Tantramar is also sending students to WE Day in Halifax, through Free the Children, a charitable group at the school aimed at empowering impoverished youth around the world. WE Day was created to “empower, educate, and above all, inspire” per Free the Children. The annual event takes place all around the world, and gives students the opportunity to see the impact they can have. TRHS will be taking approximately 30 students to this celebration.
To share some of the school’s fall past events; Tantramar’s chapter of Free the Children hosted a coffee house on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The event saw students put their talents on display to raise money and awareness for their cause. In past years, the group of students raised enough to buy goats for a poor South American town, as well as to build a school in Nicaragua. Watch for other upcoming coffee house dates in the New Year.
The Titans also held their annual SpookWalk, decorating and haunting the basement of TRHS. This year a “haunted hallway” was added for those who are still working up their courage to tackle the spooky basement. Tantramar wants to thank the community who came out to support this event, with proceeds going to our Titans in Need.
We are very appreciative and proud to have our community’s support! Thank You for continuing to help make our events successful, and for being the biggest little town on the Marsh. We hope to see you at the Craft Sale.
