October 28, 2014 PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE “Holiday Fair to take place in Southold” SOUTHOLD, NY. The Southold Historical Society is pleased to announce its first ever Holiday Fair, which will take place on Saturday, December 6, 2014. The fair will be held at the Peconic Recreation Center, located at 970 Peconic Lane, Peconic, New York and will be open from 10am to 4pm. Specially selected vendors will have a variety of holiday gifts and cards available for purchase. “We are very proud to have these vendors working with us,” stated Peggy Murphy, the co-chair of the event. Each vendor was carefully screened as to the quality of their merchandise to ensure that only the best hand-made items would be for sale. In addition to the vendors, there are a number of different activities planned. The Railroad Museum of Long Island will erect a elaborate model train display, which is sure to please old and young alike. For children, there will be face-painting, a craft room, and the most exciting part – Santa Claus will be on site – distributing small gifts to the children. Children can have their photo taken with Santa and will receive a print free of charge. The day’s activities will be rounded out with a bake sale of homemade delicacies and a café for those who get hungry during their visit. “There is nothing better than the flavor and smell of home-made baked goods,” stated Chris Wruck, the co-chair of the event. A raffle of prize items and baskets will feature goods donated from variety of local merchants, farmers, and local artists. Among the raffle items are gift certificates to local restaurants and stores, baskets of Long Island wine, selections of hand-made candies and treats, as well as specially prepared items from local farms, including Catapano’s and Krupski’s.
