This year it will be on Wednesday, November 12th from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. At this time people from all around the West-Alabama area will be visiting to enjoy the food, the fellowship and the great selec- tions of crafts, gifts, and attic treasures. The wonderful chicken salad lunch includes the salad on lettuce, pimento cheese sandwich, pickled peach, chips, and desert. The lunch- eon begins at 11:00 a.m., but the rest of the rooms will open at 10:00 a.m. sharp. There is a "Take-Out" room for those who are unable to stay and visit with friends. The bake room is probably the most popular of all rooms. Friends can be found standing in line to purchase the home- made caramel, chocolate, and lemon cakes as well as the other cakes, pies, candies, jel- lies etc. Many frozen home- made casseroles, chilies, soups, etc. are sold straight from the freezer. So these can be used immediately or much later. For several years the silent auction has been a hit with shoppers. Local merchants and church members donate items and services for auction and the one with the highest bid wins the item. It is hopped that bidders will make a full- value bid because all the monies raised go to missions. In addition to having fel- lowship together all visitors will be joining The United Methodist Women in being the hands and feet of the Christ we serve because All Funds Raised Will Be Used For Missions locally, nationally and around the world. Just a few of the mission projects CLARA PURSE'S NEWS AND EVENTS are: Hamet's House, Shoe Box Ministries, Children's Home, SKIP, Apple Tree Project, Project Merry Christmas, Demopolis Food Pantry, UWA Wesley Foundation, Red Bird Mission, World Hunger, Dumas Wesley Community Center, Nellie Barge Community Center, and many more. The foods purchased at the bazaar will provide a lot of food for a hungry world. Come Join The Fun!
