Johnston PTSO hosts Holly Fair on Dec. 3


Now that much-ballyhooed Black Friday and Cyber Monday are in the books, if you’re still looking for unique gifts and bargains for that someone special — or yourself — think about taking in the Johnston High School PTSO (Parent Teachers and Student Organization) Holly Fair this Saturday, Dec. 3.

The 11th annual Holly Fair will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in and around the spacious JHS cafeteria and promises to feature fun, food and more.

Moreover, if you enjoy helping support student grants, the 11th Annual PTSO Holly Fair is the event to visit, as proceeds will be used for two scholarships, as well as providing special gifts for members of the Class of 2023.

In addition, the classes of 2023, 2024 and 2025 will be represented, as well as members from the Johnston Prevention Coalition.

“Our committee as well as business owners are looking forward to Saturday,” offered Lance Niles, who is in his second year at PTSO president. “Personally, I’m very much excited about what could be one of our biggest and best Holly Fair’s in recent memory.”

Niles reported earlier this week that by the time Saturday rolls around, “We could have as many as 45 plus vendors. There will be something for people all ages — from Avon to Beadcraft Bracelets, Joan’s Beachy Jewelry, to Sweet Deliveries, Organic Homemade Elderberry Syrup, macramé, Angels Around Us, Cards by Susi and Teri’s Treasures.”

Added Niles: “We want to thank everyone in advance for coming to previous Holly Fair’s and we welcome those many generous people as well as folks who’ve never been here before.”

When asked for a hint — or preview — of other vendors, Niles smiled, then offered: “There will be everything from Christine’s $5 Bling Boutique and Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski.”

He said the list could go on-and-on, but did confirm there could be a special visit from Jolly ol’ Saint Nick, who the children “absolutely adore and who has been to Cherry Hill in past years.”
