The Garden City Community Church held its Americana Fair on Saturday, November 17th. Crowds were lined up on the sidewalk before the opening to buy collectibles, antiques, china, toys and many other things. Some items included an oil on linen painting that was snapped up right away, as well as Coach bags and fine and vintage jewelry. Vendors were located in the parlor with unusual products for sale.  
"The Auxiliary Board of the Garden City Community Church is very grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support for the Americana Fair.  To make the fair a success, congregants and friends of the Church brought to the effort their time and talents: baking pies, cooking soups, designing gift baskets, and arranging with care donated household items and jewelry. Over 110 volunteers, ages 10 to 90, helped on Fair Day. We also are pleased that so many people came and shopped. We are indeed, a ‘Community’ Church, in the truest sense of the word," said Robin Boyle Laisure, President of the Auxiliary.  
The Auxiliary Board also includes Secretary, Nancy Layton-Zeims; Publicity Chairperson, Janice Salem; and Treasurer, Martha Yasso. The recent past presidents were Linda Gambardella and Kimberly Pauley.
