    FREE Admission! As the holiday season approaches, the Bristol Historical Society is “decking the halls” in preparation for its 11 th Annual Holiday Craft Fair. The Fair will take place on Saturday, December 2nd from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Bristol Historical Society building, 98 Summer Street. Our fair is a hallmark of the Christmas season, and is definitely the place where holiday spirit abounds. A variety of crafters and vendors will be offering a creative selection of goods. It’s an
    ideal time to do your Christmas shopping and get that unique, handcrafted, one-of- a-kind gift for that special family member or friend. Don’t forget to stop by our Christmas Boutique, where recycled treasures and gift items are offered. Come take a look; you might find something special for your holiday décor. Our Bake Sale will be available to satisfy your sweet tooth. Purchase a snack to nibble on while you shop, or, bring home a treat to share with your family.
    While at our fair, you will enjoy the ambience of our building, one of the oldest buildings in Bristol. It is the repository of Bristol’s history – our history. Discover more about the happenings at the Bristol Historical Society. Perhaps consider a membership, which will enable you to participate in year-round events. This year we are featuring a special Gift Membership opportunity that incorporates a half year’s gift membership with a Bristol Historical Society T-
    shirt or sweatshirt. More information will be available at the Fair.
    Our Fair is a wonderful prelude to the holiday season. Please mark your calendar and plan on joining us! Mary Houle, Holiday Fair Chairman
