St. Nicholas will visit St. Mary’s Episcopal Church during the annual St. Nicholas Day Fair on Saturday, December 3.

St. Nick will be making his appearance between 11 a.m. and noon at the fair. Born in the third century, St. Nicholas  was revered for his works of kindness and generosity to children (especially those in need).
