The magic of holiday spirit is brewing at Summit Academy Community School – Cincinnati. With preparation for the Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair well underway, students, staff and community members are expressing their enthusiasm about the December 11 (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) event.

Hosted by the school’s Parents Teachers Students Together association, the fair will feature dozens of vendors exhibiting and selling their arts, crafts and household products, such as those from Pampered Chef, Scentsy, Sublimation Goods, Color Street, Norwex Products and others.

“I am so excited about educating everyone on how Norwex products can improve lives by radically reducing chemicals in the home,” said Linda Lee of Norwex Products, as she prepares for the fair.

Pampered Chef’s Barb Hessler will be on hand at the Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair with assorted kitchen items to make baking and cooking a breeze.

Barb Hessler from Pampered Chef said she is “excited to share some holiday gift ideas for friends and family while helping people stock their kitchens for holiday baking and meals…”

The vendors aren’t the only ones who are looking forward to the event.

“I’m excited to see everyone there,” said Summit Academy Community Resource Coordinator Khadine Kelly, MSW, LSW.  “This is our first time hosting an arts and crafts fair for our school and we are expecting a good turnout and great community involvement, and hoping to raise a lot of money for our students.”

Students and teachers will be on hand, volunteering at the event to help with its success. In addition, the school’s Cheer Team will host a concession stand where hungry shoppers can refuel with tasty snacks and beverages. Proceeds from concessions sales will go toward new team uniforms and other needs.

The Summit Academy Community School – Cincinnati Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair will be held in the school gymnasium at 1660 Sternblock Lane, Cincinnati.
