St. Teresa's School hosts holiday market

November 18, 2006

Albany -- St. Teresa's School spread some holiday cheer in Albany Saturday at the annual Holly Berry Market. The market started as a one classroom arts and crafts sale, but now it has grown to more than 50 vendors.

Southwest Georgia vendors brought their one of a kind gifts to Albany to sell, and some gave people a taste of their own home made treats. Students, parents, and faculty serve as volunteers at the market each year. Money from admission goes to several different area charities as well as the school's PTO.

"We're using the money for projects in the community. We help St. Clare's Center, Neighbors in Need. We send some of the Retired Sisters that founded our school about 50 years ago, and it's all positive," said Rose Palazzolo.

Organizers had to cut that number of vendors down from last year because so many people attend the market.
