Booths are available for bazaar
Plans are under way for the annual Arts and Crafts Fall Bazaar to be held on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Patterson Civic Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This unique fundraiser with space for approximately 50 vendors is sponsored by the parish Red Ribbon Committee.
Patrons to the event can expect to choose from a variety of items to purchase. Since the date is close to Christmas, this will be a good time to begin planning for the holiday season.
Booth space is currently on sale now for school clubs, churches, civic organizations, as well as individuals who want to raise money for their cause. A booth consists of three 8 feet long tables in a U-shape. The cost of a booth is $40.
Vendors may sell homemade items, garage sale items (with the exception of clothing), arts and crafts, antiques, baked goods and just about anything else.
Vendors pay for booth space and then keep all of their proceeds. Since the event is held indoors, weather is not a problem. Booth space will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information and/or a registration form, please call Jacki Ackel or Diane Wiltz at 836-9661.
There will be a $2 admission at the door for all adults, children under 10 will not be charged. Concessions of hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks will be sold by the Red Ribbon Committee.
Proceeds from the event will help fund the annual drug-free prevention week of Oct. 21-30. Organizers of the event believe that this is a “win-win” event for both the Committee and groups who participate.
