CRYSTAL FALLS—Area quilters and crafters will be showcased Saturday, Oct. 5 at Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp’s Fall Fest.
Festivities begin at 9:30 a.m. with a hearty buffet brunch served in the camp dining hall, a country market of home-baked breads and pies and quilt viewing in the chapel/auditorium.
The quilt and fine art auction begins at 11 a.m. Juried quilts, wall hangings, woodcraft, artwork, jewelry and baskets are among the auction items. A variety of other handmade items and crafts may be purchased separately or through a “draffle” format.
Optional activities during the auction will include games, face and pumpkin painting for children, and pontoon cruises to view the fall colors on Fortune Lake.
This annual fundraiser benefits Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp, a camping and retreat facility owned by the 82 congregations of the Northern Great Lakes Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and several other Lutheran churches.
Pastor Tracy Polzin, camp director, says, “It’s a win-win situatio.! Quilters, crafters, artists, and bakers donate their work; shoppers get to purchase amazing, one-of-a kind items, and proceeds support an important ministry.”
Located three miles west of Crystal Falls on U.S. 2, Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp has been serving people of all faiths and all ages for 83 years.
