First St. Joseph Manor antique fair deemed a success

St. Joseph Manor's first-ever antique fair in support of the Alzheimers Society of Ottawa was a huge success on Saturday. So much so that the co-organizers plan to make it an annual event.

"We're already talking about making it bigger and better next year and the years to come," said St. Joseph Manor marketing director Diane Charlebois.

Eight professional antique appraisers we're on hand to value the various family heirlooms that were brought in, including Ross Wilson who is the former curator of military dress and insignia at the Canadian War Museum.

"I was a little disappointed in terms of the number of military items that were brought in, but this is the first year for this event. I'm sure we'll see a lot more items next year," said Wilson.

Despite the modest attendance the event raised well over $1,000 for the Alzheimers Society of Ottawa, thanks in large part to the many items that were donated by local businesses.

"Everyone has been so generous. Gabriel Pizza came through with a bunch of pizzas. The Orleans Fruit Farm donated apples. We received a lot of gift baskets which we were able to raffle off. In terms of the money we raised I coulnd't be happier. It's been wonderful," said Charlebois.

(This story was made possible thanks to their generous support of our local business partners.)
