The recent Arts and Crafts Fair atBrooksby Villageattracted nearly 500 people to tables of handmade creations, including knitted clothing, paintings, photographs, and jewelry. The 27 vendors gave a portion or all of their proceeds to the community s scholarship fund for student employees. William Bill Carey (shown here), displayed his shadow boxes at the fair. Carey does his woodwork at Brooksby s wood shop and the detailing and painting of the miniature scenes at his kitchen table.
