The Cape Ann Community is invited to Shop, Drop and Celebrate at the Winter Wonderland Holiday Fair on Saturday, December 4, 2010.  The event hosted at Manchester Athletic Club, 8 Atwater Avenue, Manchester Ma., (978) 526-8900.

Shop from 9 am to 2 pm.  41 Exclusive local vendors offer unique and thoughtful holiday gifts.  Get a Christmas tree, a Holiday Wreath or decorations.  Proceeds from the holiday wreath sale will benefit Open Door Food Pantry in Gloucester. The mission of The Open Door is to alleviate the impact of hunger in our community.   They use practical strategies to connect people to good food, to advocate on behalf of those in need, and to engage others in the work of building food security.

Drop a few pounds and a few toys.  The premiere health club on Cape Ann is Open to the community for the day. All comers are invited to an Exclusive Zumba dance class at 9:30 am and to spend 15 minutes with a Personal Trainer.  Space is limited and we will work to accommodate all folks who come to workout.

Drop a Toy to benefit Pathways for Children.  Manchester Athletic Club is accepting unwrapped and unused toys to benefit Pathways for Children, the leading provider of programs for children on Cape Ann, located in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  Pathways offers high quality care provided by well-trained, dedicated professionals who understand the needs of the developing child. It is care that helps a child feel safe and excited about living each day, that acknowledges the strength of each family, and that is able to provide help when needed.

Come to the Winter Wonderland Holiday fair.  Shop for Exclusive local gifts, better than the mall and no parking stress.   Shop for Holiday decorations and give to Open Door. Drop a few pounds at a class, with a trainer and on the courts.  Drop a Toy for a child and provide a child with the Magic that Santa brings.  Celebrate the Holiday season locally with your community.
