The season of giving is here, presenting us with opportunities to help others at the same time we remember our family and friends. A can't-miss event in more ways than one is the annual holiday fair hosted by the Women's Bean Project at the Women's Bean Project headquarters. The project gives impoverished woman a chance to create gourmet food items and handcrafted jewelry in order to gain life skills needed to overcome unemployment and provide for themselves and their families. The fair runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, tomorrow and Sunday; there will be samples of the prepared foods, shopping opportunities and music throughout. And from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 7, Santa will be on hand.
