BUMC Fall Bazaar Sept. 16-17
Boone United Methodist Church will hold its Fall Bazaar 2011
Sept. 16 and 17.
"The unofficial kickoff of autumn in the High Country is right around the corner - the Fall Bazaar at Boone United Methodist Church. The event has become so popular during the past 27 years that now thousands attend - in search of hidden treasures and bargains, good food and fellowship," a church spokesman said.
Located at 471 New Market Blvd., directly behind the New Market shopping center, the church's annual Fall Bazaar will be from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, and from 7:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17.
Features include furniture, computers and electronics, sports equipment, clothing of all kinds, handmade crafts, Christmas items, jams and jellies, baked goods, chicken pies, new and previewed books and videos, yard sale items, as well as "down home" country cooking.
Breakfast will be served on Friday and Saturday mornings, plus lunch on Friday. A silent auction featuring jewelry, china, silver and many items from local businesses will accept bids on Friday, Sept. 16, until 6 p.m.
The bazaar is one of the church's main events, involving more than 500 volunteers of all ages - 3 to 99 to be exact - serving more than 6,000 hours. The event benefits the church building fund and local missions.
