  • The Harrisburg United Methodist Women’s 77th Christmas Bazaar is 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 6, bringing food and shopping opportunities in time for Christmas.
    There will be a silent auction and baked items, candy, Rada knives, pecans and attic treasures for sale. The event annually draws between 200 and 300 people “Except for one year when we had a snowstorm. We probably had 100 then and that was the prettiest stage we ever had,” Becky Barnhill said.
    From 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. morning coffee and continental breakfast will be served and lunch is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On the lunch menu is chicken casserole, green beans, sweet potatoes, cranberry relish, rolls and dessert all for $8. Carry outs are available by calling (618) 253-7023.
    The event is the major fundraiser for the United Methodist Women which goes to support mission work. Annually, the event raises about $3,000 with strong support from all the women of the Methodist Church. “I think the women of the Methodist Church participate very well,” Barnhill said.
    WHEN 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6.
