JONESVILLE — The Yadkin Valley Museum, doing business as the Jonesville Historical Society, will host a Christmas Bazaar and Craft Fair followed by Christmas-themed Bingo Saturday at the Yadkin Valley Senior Center.

Located on Delos Martin Drive in Jonesville, members of the JHS will open the center at 8 a.m. where every spot will be filled with vendors.

“All tables are sold out with crafters,” said JHS President Becky Wood. “There will be Paparazzi Jewelry, LuLaRoe Clothing, Tupperware, Thirty One, glassware, sparkling balls, Christmas ornaments, diaper cakes, wooden signs, homemade baked goods, candies and fudge.”

There also will be homemade soaps, baskets and scarves as well as other vendors including refreshments.

During the craft bazaar, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., $5 will buy two hot dogs with drink and chips. From 5 to 7 p.m., there will be a soup supper which will be available to take home as well as eat on premises.

“We’ll have chili, homemade vegetable and homemade chicken noodle,” said Wood, “and you get a bowl of soup, crackers, dessert and drink for $8.”

Wood seemed most excited about the Christmas Bingo, which starts at 6 p.m., due to the prizes.

“They will all be based on Christmas,” said Wood.

“Judy [Wolfe, late president] left us a bunch of old Santa Clauses so it’s a little bit of history in each one,” said Wood, explaining the intrinsic value of a few of the items, “and we thought that would be great prizes to give away [to help raise funds and awareness].”

The $25 for 20 Bingo games collected from each player will go toward improvements of the veterans memorials at Mineral Springs Park.

“Everyone goes home with a prize. We have our license and we are ready to rock,” said Wood, “and we will have the time of our life.

“Come across the bridge,” said Wood, “and all you Jonesville-Elkin citizens come show your support.”

For more information, call Becky Wood at 336-244-5064.
