The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) of St. James Parish held a craft show on Saturday, where 12 vendors showed their goods and the scent of homemade soup drifted through the air.
Expecting around 150 guests, a soup and sandwich lunch was for sale, plus a silent auction, 50/50 draw and raffle basket were all up for grabs.
“It’s all put on out of our own pockets, and the profits go to the CWL,” said Joan Essiambre, a member of the CWL and an event organizer.
