The Newton Highlands Woman's Club Ninth Annual Craft Fair was a success.There was somethng for everyone. Lots of wonderful items were on display and good things to eat were featured at the Bake Sale. Best of all there was a considerable amount of networking and social interaction happening among the attendees, club members, and vendors. It had the feel of an"old fashioned" neighborhood fair.
