The Magnolia Point Women’s Club saw another successful fundraiser conclude yesterday (Saturday, November 11). So many volunteer members worked endlessly on the annual one-day Holiday Arts & Craft Show, held at the Clay County Fairgrounds. We had vendors, we had shoppers, we had food trucks, we had local Veteran representation from VFW Post 1988 in Green Cove Springs, we had raffle baskets and silent auction items generously donated by members and local and corporate donors. More kudos and results will come later once the team takes a much needed rest.
But one group that certainly needs recognition are the wonderful young men and women from Clay High School who worked on both Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11, being the “muscle” – carrying in products for vendors setting up, helping the Women’s Club members tape and arrange the booth spaces, setting up tables and chairs, and then taking it all down again after the event on Saturday. So many of the vendors commented on what nice young people they were and really appreciated their assistance. The fair team also appreciates their help – we couldn’t have set up/tore down without their assistance.
