EAST DORSET - The East Dorset Congregational Church will be holding their third annual craft fair and silent auction on Saturday, Aug. 16, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., rain or shine, on the green in front of the church on Mad Tom Road in East Dorset.

There will be 20 vendors, some who have attended previous fairs and a number of new vendors with interesting products. Refreshments will be available for sale.
