Prize winners announced at Holiday Boutique

November 21, 2017 by

Crowded lines greeted early-morning visitors to the annual Neighbor to Neighbor Holiday Boutique on Saturday morning (Nov. 18) as eager shoppers queued up early to get first pick of the holiday goodies available for purchase.

The bake sale tables — featuring homemade cookies, candies, breads, cakes and other treats — gathered immediate attention. Then shoppers and supporters could turn their attention to the array of tables and stands loaded with hand-crafted children’s toys and clothes, decorations, quilts, kitchen items and jewelry.

All the items are made by the women who come to the center, along with friends and supporters of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia who operate Neighbor to Neighbor.

The event ended at 2 p.m. with a drawing for eight prizes:

  • Pam Campbell won the “Apple Fest 2017” quilt, with hand-appliqued blocks donated to Neighbor to Neighbor and design completed and stitched by master quilter Sandra Detrixhe.
  • Jeanette Denault won a Barbie-sized fashion doll with her own lace-covered closet filled with outfits handmade by Sister Susan Stoeber.
  • Naomi Larouche won a glazed ceramic wall-mount letter holder that was donated to Neighbor to Neighbor.
  • Alexis Seim took home a fashion doll with her own lace-covered closet filled with outfits handmade by Sister Susan Stoeber.
  • Vera Gerard was the winner of a Seth Thomas mantle clock, model No. 11, donated to Neighbor to Neighbor.
  • Pam Campbell also won a larger-sized fashion doll with her own closet filled with unique outfits handmade by Sister Susan Stoeber.
  • Vera Gerard also won the baby doll complete with crib, hand-made wardrobe, diaper bag full of accessories and a baby quilt made by Sister Susan Stoeber.
  • JoAnn Haist won the Barbie collectible music box entitled “Wedding Day 1959” complete with box.

All proceeds from the annual event support the programs, artists and craftswomen at Neighbor to Neighbor.
