St. Joseph's Bazaar wraps up

Posted: Updated:

ENDICOTT (WBNG) -- Hundreds headed to Endicott this weekend for the Saint Joseph's Bazaar.

St. Joseph's Catholic Church began as a small community of 117 Slovak families in Endicott. Those families decided to build a church of their own. Saint Joseph's has more than 1,000 parish members and continues to grow each day.
Among members are volunteers who show their support by giving back at the bazaar. Some people like co-chair organizer of Saint Joseph's Bazaar, Terri Smith have been volunteering for the past 20 years.

"People come from near and far just to see each other and come out and have a good time," said Smith. "So it's very rewarding and it makes all that work worth it."

Live music, food and raffle baskets were all part of the fun. The funds raised during the event will be used to benefit members of the community and go to the church.

Young volunteers said they like giving back to their community.

"I like it," said volunteer Emily Janika. "Being able to see all the people and like help raise money for the church and seeing how it makes everybody happy."

The bazaar wrapped on Sunday at 4 p.m.
