NORTHPORT - Poor weather may have affected last weekend's fundraiser for the Northport Home and School Association, but not enough to take away from its success, according to one of its organizers.

Home and school member Betty Moore said the annual bazaar brought in a substantial amount of money for the association, and is still the organization's major fundraiser of the year.

The event went really well, raising almost $2,000, according to Moore.

"The turnout was not as good, but it was raining that day and was kind of cold," she said. "So we didn't have the pony rides and stuff like that, but we did well. It was a little down from previous years, but still, $2,000 for home and school is pretty good."

The bazaar is the major fundraising event of the year for the home and school association, paying for such things as sports trips, busing for various field trips and items that have to be purchased for the students, she explained. It also supports events such as the annual Halloween dance, which was held last week, providing students, teachers and parents the opportunity to enjoy dancing, healthy snacks and social time.

This year's event featured the popular auction, yard sale, bake table, barbecue and mock jail for the children.
