HARRISBURG – For the 81st year in a row, the United Methodist Women of Harrisburg have featured a holiday-themed bazaar to raise money for the church's missions.

Beverly Trammel, the UMW's president, said the group of about 50 women, along with other Harrisburg First United Methodist Church members and friends of the church, begin planning the event in the fall.

"We start in September with publicizing and getting the committees together," she said.

The end result is a staple of the holidays in Harrisburg, with many attending the breakfast or dinner, bidding on silent auction items and purchasing homemade candy and treats.
