Fundraiser Friday: craft shows galore

This weekend, you’ll have two opportunities to shop for handmade Christmas gifts and to benefit some area moms in tough circumstances.

Also Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., a craft show will be held at 309 Hawke Street in Fredericksburg to raise money for Mary’s Shelter, a local group which houses and supports homeless pregnant women. You can read more about that program here.
