Parishioner Debbie King at last year’s St. Giles Country Fair.

JEFFERSON — The annual fundraising event for St. Giles Episcopal Church is set from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 29, at 72 Gardiner Road.

Activities are planned outside under the pines for all ages.

There will be many items raffled, plus a country cupboard, homemade pies, and tables of treasures including antiques donated by parishioners and others.

One of the raffles is for a queen-size quilt handmade by the Rev. Molly Sherm. Also being raffled are a beach day package, a camping weekend, and certificates offered by local businesses for restaurant meals, beauty care and other items.

For children, a variety of activities, all free of cost, include fishing, a ring toss, an archaeological “dig” for bones, and the Hobby Horse Derby, starting at 11 a.m., hosted by Giles, the church mouse.

Winners of the different jump levels will receive trophies. Barrel racing is new this year for the young racers. A belt buckle will be the prize in the barrel racing. Participants should wear their fastest “horseshoes” (sneakers).


Sixteen vendors will offer a variety of items for sale.

A food truck will be on site. Parishioners will offer hotdogs and sausages on the grill.

Throughout the day music will be provided by Heart ‘n Soul, Rich Serianni, Orville Lee, and Fealy and the Burbanks.

Funds from the event help support St. Giles and its outreach programs, which include the Jefferson Area Community Food Bank, Home for Little Wanderers, and Episcopal Relief and Development.
