Plan to attend the 27th annual Wonderful World of Christmas Craft/Vendor Show this Sunday, November 8, 2015 at the Genoa-Kingston High School on Route 72 (just west of Genoa, IL) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Over 140 area crafters and vendors will display their items. Crafters and vendors are from over 20 towns. Some of the items this year include handmade furniture, American doll clothes, children’s aprons, homemade pet treats, natural local area honey, artisan crafts, handmade soaps & essential oils. Bake sales, food booths and over 300 grab bag gifts will also be available. Santa will arrive at 11:30 and stay until 1:00 to hear special wishes. Bring your camera.
Admission is $1.00 for adults and .50 for children. There are over 100 chances to win door prizes. A 50/50 cash drawing will take place at the end of the show plus a hand-crocheted afghan will be raffled.
This event is sponsored by the Genoa Community Women’s Club to benefit the club college scholarship fund. Scholarships are awarded each year to deserving G-K graduating high school seniors. Last year 4 students were awarded $1,700 each. The club also donates money throughout the year to community/area programs and people in need of help. In April the club will hold a Bunco for Breast Cancer benefit to support local cancer centers.
The members of the Genoa Community Women’s Club are excited to be celebrating their 68th year as a club. Monthly meetings are held at 6:30 pm the 4th Tues. of each month at the Resource Bank (lower level) in Genoa. All women from the Genoa, Kingston and surrounding towns are welcome to help them make a difference in the community. For more information about their meetings contact call 815-761-0515.
