      Craft show evolves over time, proceeds benefit local school

      What started as a small one-room craft show 25 years ago is now a community event that fills an entire school. More than 80 vendors participated in the annual Holy Spirit craft show in Norway this weekend.

      Shoppers could shop locally for things like hand-woven rugs, homemade jewelry and holiday wreaths. Part of the proceeds supports Holy Spirit School.

      "We've always had to have extra fundraisers because we do not get the state aid that public schools do," said Rose Gianunzio, a coordinator. "It keeps our tuition lower and affordable and keeps the school open to operate."

      Organizers estimate to have raised $7000 to $8,000.
