Senior Center thanks Bazaar supporters

By Toni Williams - Vandalia Senior Center

The Vandalia Senior Center bazaar was more successful than ever. It takes many people to make this happen. A big thank-you to Jackie Martin for helping with this event. Thank-you to those who made things to sell, including the Super Sewers, the Flower Group, and members who donated items. We appreciate members who gave monetary donations and those of you who filled the trash and treasure room. Thanks to the City for arranging the furniture and then moving it all back. All of this would not have worked if not for the volunteers who set up the bazaar and worked on Saturday, including the greeters, trash & treasure workers, those selling the books, puzzles, flower arrangements, and mums, the Super Sewer team, those selling raffle and 50/50 tickets, those working in the dining room, the kitchen crew and cashiers, those selling cold cabbage rolls, baked goods, and candy, and the treasurer. The biggest thank-you goes to all of you that supported the Bazaar by coming to the enjoy food, fellowship, and giving!
