World Fare celebrates 10 years of fair trade
In 2003, the Three Rivers Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored a ribbon-cutting at 37 N. Main Street in Three Rivers for a unique new shop, one run by volunteers and featuring goods from economically disadvantaged communities around the world. Ten years later, World Fare is going strong, connecting local volunteers with global neighbors in mutually beneficial trade relationships. The public is invited to celebrate ten years of fair trade with World Fare on Sunday, September 1. The shop will be open noon-8:00 p.m. during the HarmonyFest music festival, with 10% off all purchases all day. A special “Storm the Store” party will take place from 3:00-3:30 p.m. with a toast, birthday cupcakes, coffee and tea, a special poem reading and a photo of past and present volunteers.
