Retirees’ annual craft sale and showcase offers plenty of holiday cheer

The 2009 York University Retirees Association (YURA) Showcase and Sale returns for another great year on Thursday, Dec. 3, from 9am to 3pm, in the East Bear Pit and Central Square corridor on York’s Keele campus. This annual event includes the ever-popular bake sale. You are encouraged to dust off your oven mitts and get out your treasured recipes.

The YURA bake table welcomes all offerings of home-baked pies, pastries, cookies, cakes, squares, muffins and preserves, or whatever is your specialty. As a special touch, consider including the recipe with your creation or a list of ingredients. Items requiring refrigeration (whipped cream, cheesecakes etc.) and those containing raw eggs, meats and sausages cannot be included in the sale, in keeping with the guidelines for bake sales held on campus. Kindly bring all contributions to the YURA Office on the morning of the sale.

In addition to the yummy baked goods, exhibitors and vendors will be presenting quality handcrafted items, original works of art and photography, Canadian antique furniture and teddy bears of all descriptions. The sale offers a great opportunity to do your Christmas and holiday shopping without the stress of crowded malls.

New for this year is the Attic Treasures theme. Readily re-giftable items will be gratefully received. Organizers are particularly interested in jewellery, picture frames, stuffed animals, unopened jigsaw puzzles, Christmas decorations and more that can be added to our collection. All items for the Attic Treasures table can be brought to the YURA Office, 101 Central Square, today until Wednesday, Dec. 2, between 9am and 4pm.
