For 30 years a group of ladies has gathered to host the Morgan Mill Arts and Crafts Fair, the event steadily growing over the decades, and it will be back again from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at the community tabernacle.
The event features an array of vendors from baked goods and ceramics, to hand carved wooden items, blankets and Christmas decorations.
“We have 27 vendors signed up. There are still a few vendor spaces available underneath the tabernacle,” Mary Adams, coordinator, said.
Every year there is a quilt raffle with tickets costing $1 each and this year’s queen-size quilt was made and donated by Adams herself.
A concession stand will also be open by the Morgan Mill 4-H Club for attendees to grab a quick lunch as they browse the vendor booths.
The Morgan Mill Arts and Crafts Fair had its first year in the summer of 1987 when several ladies came together to discuss a way to sell some of their art and crafts.
“This is the 30th year. When we started in 1987 we never thought the fair would still be happening,” Adams said.
Not only is the event fun to attend, but the proceeds go to a great cause.
“A scholarship is given each year to high school seniors that completed the 8th grade at Morgan Mill ISD,” Adams said.
