Laquey Christmas bazaar held Saturday

LAQUEY, Mo. (Dec. 4, 2010) — Those who want to buy craft items have about an hour left today before the Laquey Christmas Bazaar closes.

Held each year on the first Saturday of December in the Laquey school gym during the last day of the Frisco League basketball tournament, the event brings numerous vendors each year. This year’s event attracted about 40 people, according to Pat Swearingin, vice-president of the Laquey Lion’s Club which sponsors the event each year.

“I was here at 6 a.m. this morning,” Swearingin said. “They come in and start setting up … you just name it, and I think it’s here. They’ve got candles and all kinds of things people have made.”

Food items available include walnuts, homemade jellies and jams. Homemade quilts are also available for sale.

The event is a major fundraiser for the Laquey Lions Club, but Swearingin emphasized that the organization is a service goroup.

“It always goes back into the community. We help with eyes and eyeglasses, and all that,” Swearingin. “We just want everybody to come out and have a good time … we want to invite anybody out who wants to come.”

The event is scheduled to end between 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., she said.
