St. Mark’s to hold annual craft fair


On Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., shoppers will be able to find toys, holiday decorations, clothes, shoes, books, and other items at the St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Islip, ECW Craft Fair. It will be held in the church yard at 754 Montauk Highway. The decades-old ECW Craft Fair has become an annual tradition for shoppers throughout both Suffolk and Nassau counties, while Long Island vendors get to display and sell their wares.

ECW stands for “Episcopal Church Women.” The St. Mark’s ECW organization, founded by the late Helen Selgrad, holds regular fundraisers at St Mark’s for the sole purpose of doing good deeds through the church, such as supporting a disadvantaged Girl Scout troop, donating food and money to outreach projects, and hosting various educational and health programs. ECW also supports the church upgrades, such as helping with the cost of an air scrubber system.
