  1. A very powerful circle sewing – my Grandmother sewed and knitted a lot in Bay View – Annisquam area! Think bingo and other activities also. Dave & Kim


  2. No time for bingo any more! The Members have been busy collecting materials and creating items for the Christmas Fair for months! The week before the Fair the members will be busy in the Village Hall decorating wreaths, making table decorations, building boxwood trees and decorating them as well as catching up on the Village news. The final step will be clearing the hall and setting up the displays for Saturday. Meanwhile, back in the many kitchens of Annisquam cookies, cakes, candies, preserves and more are being made and tested before wrapping with festive decorations. So much to do, so little time left! Come join this wonderful group of women as we celebrate the fast approaching holiday season.
