People from all over the region gather at Adirondack Folk School this summer for their annual Bountiful Bowl Benefit event, in which for a modest donation, people get a bowl full of a savory homemade concoction, socialize, see artisans at work at the school, and then get to take home the handcrafted pottery bowl as a memento of the day. This Friday and Saturday, the Folk School, located on Main St. in Luzerne, is holding their Holiday Fair, in which about 20 folk school instructors and artisans demonstrate their crafts and sell their wares.Courtesy photo
