West Langley Elementary School Christmas Market is back

Organizers of fundraiser for school had to sit out 2020 due to COVID

After sitting out 2020 due to the pandemic, the West Langley Elementary School Christmas Market is back.

Organized by the school P.A.C. and coordinated by West Langley parent Sarah Hatch, the fundraiser for the school, on Saturday Nov. 20, is the first holiday market since 2019.

”It’s been so exciting to be planning the Christmas market again and spreading the joy,” Hatch commented.

“We are looking forward to seeing the community show up again.”

Hatch said 100 “amazing” vendors applied for 30 available spots.

It was a “challenge” winnowing that number down, Hatch remarked.

”It has also been a challenge to plan our COVID policies for the event when they are often changing or unclear.”

What the organizers are doing is limiting the number of people in the gym where the market will be held, taking information for contact tracing, and requiring masks.

The market will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is by donation, and there will be door prizes.
