This year’s event will be held Saturday, November 17 at General McLane High School.
Nearly 100 vendors will be in attendance. This year’s crafts include: ornaments, bird feeders, wreaths, journals, photography, picture frames, doll clothes, purses and bags, stained glass, puzzles, chocolates, soap and lotions, knitting and sewing, signs, pottery and mixed media arts.
A few of the artists to be featured include: Palma’s Sweet Treats, Jeannie Trudell Folkart, Susan’s Stitchery, Designs in Polymer Clay and many more.
In addition to vendors, there will also be a Chinese Auction and a Silent Auction.
Although vendors are currently on a waiting list as the Holiday Arts Fair has been full for vendors for a couple months now, items are still being collected for the Silent Auction.
There will also be musical performances by General McLane’s student groups throughout the day.
“Every year that we’ve done this, the support of our community has never ceased to amaze me, and we hope to continue seeing that this year,” said organizer Carrie Crow. “It is an honor to display the work of some of our area’s most unique artists while directly supporting General McLane students.
The General McLane Foundation invests in our future by investing in its students through student scholarships, innovative educational programs and capital improvements.”
Last year’s event raised almost $7,700 for student scholarships. All proceeds benefit the General McLane Foundation, an organization founded in 2005 exclusively for charitable educational purposes that will benefit the students of the General McLane School District.
More than $500,000 has been donated to the General McLane Foundation in memory or honor of students, teachers and staff of General McLane School District.
