Crafts bazaar is Saturday
This Saturday, October 24th the annual Cottonwood Crafts Bazaar will be taking place at the Cottonwood Community Hall from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cottonwood’s very own sorority, Xi Beta Rho, sponsors this yearly event attracting a variety of vendors who sell homemade items such as, baked goods, soaps, jams, jewelry, magnets, pillows and frames while other vendors bring items from their home businesses such as Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Avon, Scentsy, and Miche handbags. To add to this fun event the sorority itself sponsors a silent auction and a potato bar that starts at 11:00.
Xi Beta Rho is a group that is community oriented and tries to give back to the community. With the money earned from this event, the group operates all year, adopts families at Christmas, and is able to donate to other worthy community causes, such as the Cottonwood Community Hall project.
This is a great opportunity to come and shop in your hometown for nontraditional and unique items and gifts. We hope to see you there!
