Dyker Heights’s Norwegian Christian Home and Health Center (1250 67th Street) celebrated yet another successful Fall Fair on Saturday, September 24 as the all-day event saw no shortage of unique merchandise, food, entertainment and community spirit.
“I think our turnout was probably better this year than it has been in many years,” said Arlene Rutuelo, vice chair of the home’s board. “It was a really, really great day.”
The sale/fundraiser is a day for Ridgeites of all ages to browse special Norwegian offerings including handmade jewelry, rosmaling (decorative painting on wood), stained glass, vintage finds, collectibles and spa items along with trying all sorts of Nordic delicacies like waffles, Lapskaus, soup, open faced sandwiches and more.
The day also featured live entertainment with an accordionist along with an estate and rummage sale, and different raffles which included big-ticket items like an iPad, a TV, a barbecue grill, jewelry, bikes, a patio set and more.
“It’s one of our fundraisers for the year but it’s also a networking event where we showcase the home,” added Rutuelo. “So we had a very successful event.”
