NORCO—When Christina Daniels heard her parish was looking for new ways of raising funds, she thought a Vendor Fair might be just the thing.
Starting in March, St. Mel Parish, Norco began holding a monthly vendor fair on the second Sunday of the month from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The first event drew large crowds throughout the day. Subsequent fairs have brought similar crowds. What began as a fundraising event has turned out to be a social gathering for parishioners.
