Gluten-free items will be among the many yummy offerings at the bake sale at this year’s Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
Since so many people have someone in the family with an intolerance to gluten, the Mountain View Homemakers are adding quite a few munchies that those folks can enjoy.
All proceeds from the bazaar bake sale will go to the Ruby Sisson Memorial Library. So, not only are the Homemakers club members baking for the event, but the many supporters of the library are invited to create goodies and deliver them to the booth early on Saturday morning.
Cakes, pies and cookies can be bought to enjoy, to be taken home for the family, or to be frozen for all those holiday events coming up in the next two months.
Area folks and visitors who may not have visited the Holiday Bazaar in recent years are especially urged to come on over and join the fun this year. There will be 75 artists showing work in 65 booths, a huge silent auction, breakfast and lunch selections at the Youth Diner, and the wonderful bake sale.
For many years, the Holiday Bazaar was organized and run by the Women’s Civic Club, which recently disbanded. They asked Mountain View Homemakers to take over the event for at least one year. The Homemakers agreed to do so and to continue the support of the library through the bake sale.
Several other organizations are helping and benefitting: The Morning Rotary Club will set up and take down the dividers, tables and chairs and will get $500 for their charities. There will be both breakfast and lunch offerings at the Youth Diner, with those proceeds going to the Pagosa Springs Youth Center. The money raised by the huge silent auction that will include over 40 themed baskets and other items, and any income left after renting the space and having it cleaned, will be distributed by the Mountain View Homemakers to the many non-profits they provide funds to each year.
