Calling all crafters

On Dec. 7, the First United Methodist Church will host their annual Holiday Bazaar, and artisans are now being sought to participate in the event. The bazaar is expected to be a considerable attraction, as a Cookie Walk and Pancake Breakfast are planned for the event. All those in the region who knit, sew, craft jewelry or wood products are invited to display and sell their wares at the bazaar, set for 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. that Saturday at the church, 3890 Main St..

The event coincides with Christmas in Warrensburgh, so a considerable number of people are expected to be in town. Those who would like to participate are urged to call Jamiee Ross at 623-2899

10th annual Variety Show this weekend

For decades, Florence LaPoint has operated charities that have provided toys, clothing and food for countless families during the holidays. She also operated a dance studio that not only taught children poise and stage teamwork, but produced an annual show, with a cast of over 100 children, that delighted local audiences with its Broadway-style glitz and glamour. The show, of course, raised many thousands of dollars for charities that aided local residents in need.

In recent years, LaPoint has concentrated on producing a minstrel show, featuring classic songs, dance, and comedy routines. This year’s edition, titled “Our Hometown USA,” will be presented at 7 p.m. Friday Nov. 15 and Saturday Nov. 16 at the Warrensburg Elementary School.

The show’s first act features classic popular songs from yesteryear, the second, celebrates Warrensburg’s community spirit with country-influenced music, and the third honors veterans as it showcases patriotic songs.

Tickets are available at Willows Bistro, from cast members, and at the door. For details, call LaPoint at: 623-3531.
