NORWAY — The Partners of the Jake Menghini Museum will host its fourth annual Craft and Vendor Show fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Norway American Legion Hall, 621 Main St. in Norway.

Admission is $1 for ages 12 and older. The fundraiser will help cover expenses to maintain the museum and its exhibits.

All available vendor spaces have been sold, so “there is a large selection for shopping,” museum manager Cris Hamlin said.

The Norway High School Class of 2018 will sell concessions and baked goods. Each year, the senior class — with the help of parents and Renee Pollard — offers a lunch to raise money for their all-night graduation party.

The Saintly Stitchers will display a quilt that will be up for a drawing at their show Oct. 13 at the Norway Covenant Church. Tickets for the quilt will be on sale.

Hermansville IXL Museum is joining with the Norway museum for the event and will have products and information on site to inform visitors about their collections and displays.

The Partners of the Jake Menghini Museum also will offer information about the Norway museum, including how to set up tours. In addition, they will offer for sale books, custom-made wooden wine stoppers and other items normally available at the museum .

The museum is open from 1 to 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from June through September.

They welcome groups, families and organizations to schedule private tours by appointment at 906-563-5586.
