St. Paul serves up family fun day for fundraiser

Parishioners of the St. Paul Catholic Church are trying something new Sunday. They’ll be at the Norwalk reservoir from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. holding the S.W.A.G. fair.

According to the church, S.W.A.G. stands for “Serve with a gift.”

Members of the church will be selling everything they can think of, with “everything” being something of an understatement.

There will be people selling popcorn, sauerkraut balls, BBQ chicken and tacos for lunch. Crafters will bring art, woodwork and wind chimes. Bike rides will be available and some parishioners will even be selling things like loads of topsoil while others will provide music, face-painting and children’s games.

Each member of the church was encouraged to bring something to sell at the event— leading to this wide, eclectic and interesting array of items.

The St. Paul High School marching band will perform at noon while Hispanic music will be performed live throughout the day.

Over 40 other vendors are registered for the event.

To end the fair, there will be an outdoor mass at 4 p.m. where all profits will be given back to the church. 

This is a family fun day that is free to attend, and will be marked by signs at the south entrance to the reservoir.
