It may be May, but the Junior League of El Paso is already getting decorations ready for the holidays.

The league’s 44th annual “A Christmas Fair” will be held Nov. 2-5 at the El Paso Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Merry and Bright.”

Members of the league gathered on May 22 to begin assembling decorations for this year’s fair. The shopping and gift market is the Junior League’s primary fundraising event and a tradition for many in El Paso, drawing more than 200 merchants and 15,0000 shoppers. Wendy Lanski is the chair of this year’s fair.

Since 1933, the Junior League of El Paso has worked to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women and improve the community.
