Artists sought for crafts fair
by Staff Report
Artists and artisans from Anson County and the surrounding region are invited to show and sell their creations at Ray Shelton Ball Park on Oct. 12. The Saturday event will last from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Those interested in participating should get a reservation application from the Wadesboro Civitan Club at P.O. Box 751, Wadesboro, NC, 28170, or phone Yates Almond at 704-848-4810. All designs must be the products of North Carolina and South Carolina residents.
The Civitan Club depends on its hot dog stand to raise money for Anson County youth activities, so the Civitans decided to organize an alternative event after the PeopleFest was cancelled.
In addition to displays of paintings, sculptures, pottery, wood carvings and hand-made furniture, quilts, jewelry and other locally-made crafts, the event will have free entertainment by local musicians and free games for children. Local organizations may also have information booths. The event will conclude with a rubber ducky race with a $500 prize for the person who picks the winning duck.
The Civitan Hot Dog Booth will be the only food vendor, but will have burgers, chips, and soft drinks, as well as their signature hot dogs.
