Cross Border Expo is Thursday


The new Shoe Workers Plaza is located in the front of the MVRTA parking garage, an area where many of Haverhill’s original shoe workers once lived and worked. The plaza features new landscaping and benches. Funding for the framing of historical shoe worker photos and the bronze plaque comes from private donations and the Haverhill Cultural Council.

To make a tax deductible donation to this project, send checks payable to: Haverhill Historical Commission, Haverhill City Hall, Room 201, Attn: Sandra Palmer, 4 Summer St., Haverhill, MA 01830. Please include Shoe Workers Memorial Plaza on the memo line.

Shopping expo planned: The Women’s Guild of the Armenian Church at Hye Pointe in Haverhill will hold a preholiday shopping expo on Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the church hall at 110 Main St.

Participating vendors include Lia Sophia, Partylite, 31 Bags, Tastefully Simple, Mary Kay, Seaglass Jewelry Designs, Razz-Berry Designs, Fusion Salon and Day Spa and Scentsy. Each table will offer a raffle item. Admission is $5 and complimentary coffee and pastry will be served. All proceeds benefit the church building fund.

Artisan Fair on tap: West Church at 767 Broadway will hold an Artisan’s Fair on Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The church is celebrating “Faith and Art” month this month. Events include a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, a series of lectures on Faith and Art, two-dimensional artwork on display, and an Artisan Fair that is open to the public.

Art and hand-crafted items will be available for purchase, including quilts, table linens, pottery, jewelry, fine art, wood crafting, organic yarn, knitted and crocheted items, stained glass, doll clothing, photography, hand-made soaps and Christmas ornaments. Pick up some treats at the Bake Table to support West Youth. Stop in and chat with authors who will be selling their latest works. View the gallery highlighting some local artists. Stop by the Kulea table to see and buy African crafts made by women in Tanzania and learn about the organization helping orphans in that country.
