Folks came from near and far to browse the annual Christmas Bazaar held Nov. 21 at the North Creek nursing home. Doors opened at 10 a.m. and revealed tables full of Christmas decorations, gifts, home baked breads, brownies, cookies and fudge. Many residents living at the home enjoyed being able to go in and shop at the bazaar. Prices were reasonable, making this an affordable event for all. There was also a large selection of books to choose from as well as crocheted and knitted items, dolls, stuffed animals and teddy bears. Many items for sale were also made by the day care registrants. Tables were set up for visitors to enjoy a delicious lunch with cookies and finger sandwiches made by the Auxiliary ladies.
A lovely handmade quilt made by Charlotte Bessey was won in a raffle by lucky ticket holder Nancy Beaudin. The day care program’s Thanksgiving Basket raffle was won by Nancy Shaw.
