Christmas in August?

The Kotlas Connection's Carl Daiker (left) and Phil Gonyar sell Christmas ornaments, nesting dolls, wooden spoons, and other wooden handicrafts from Russia at REM's Arts in the Park event on August 21, in Castonguay Square in downtown Waterville. Click on the table or the tree for closeups.

Besides our offerings, the afternoon mini-festival featured wooden bowls from Kenya, locally made woven baskets, and paintings by local artists. While artseekers browsed, singers, (guitar) strummers, and drummers entertained. In all, nearly a dozen artists and musicians participated.

If you missed this event, don't worry, you'll have plenty of other opportunities to buy our ornaments. We will be selling them at our annual meeting in November, at craft fairs at Temple Academy and Waterville High School on the first Saturday in December, and throughout that month at both branches of Kennebec Federal Savings in Waterville. Stay tuned for details.
