Big Valley Craft Show and Sale successful start to Christmas season

Food, cash donated to food bank after show

A tour of the 13th Annual Big Valley Christmas Craft Show and Sale on Saturday, Nov. 18 proved once again to be an enjoyable start to the busy Christmas season. Participating exhibitors offered a delightful selection of unique crafts, beautiful art, handmade gifts, services and scrumptious treats. Thank you to all the artists, crafts people and vendors who participated, to the customers who visited and purchased some beautiful items and to all the volunteers who help to bring this event to our community every year.

The food drive was also a great success. Thanks to our amazingly generous community we have over 120 lbs. of food and $70 going to our local food banks. Thank you all and we’ll see you next year!
