Holiday Boutique raises money for local needy families

The Holiday Treasure Boutique is an event at Logan’s First Presbyterian Church to raise funds for those in need. It is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4-5 at the church, 200 West Center Street in Logan. “This is the third year we have done this,” said volunteer Ann Egeland. “Every year we try to add something new and keep some of the favorite things the people have liked from the past. This year is no exception. Friday night at 7:30 to entice people to come and see what they can buy for Christmas, we have the Westminster Bell Choir performing until 8:15. After that we will have a dessert bar and you can get any kind of beverage and a dessert and that will be for a donation.” Egeland said beginning Friday at 5 p.m. 20 vendors will be on hand, Cache Valley artisans with aprons and table toppers and quilts, jewelry, photography, and lotions and soaps suitable as gifts. “One of our specialty booths is what we call the ‘Bread of Life’ with all sorts of quick breads and yeast breads and we’re hoping people will come and fill their freezers up with fresh breads and holiday fruit breads for the holiday season.” Egeland said the vendors will again be on hand Saturday plus a lunch will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Egeland said funds raised last year were used to help over 40 families with utility bills, rent, heating and gasoline in the difficult economy. “Often it is a situation where a family needs just a little money until payday, that sort of thing. That is what the fund is used for,” said Egeland.
