Berea United Methodist prepares for bazaar

BEREA — The Berea United Methodist Church will conduct its annual church bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in its fellowship hall, 101 Fee St.  

Many different craft items will be available for purchase including handmade baskets created by members of United Methodis Women, crocheted necklaces, ruffled knitted scarves, knitted dishcloths, scroll saw ornaments, etc.

The ever popular peanut brittle, pumpkin rolls, jellies, jams, relishes, cakes, candy, breads, used books and silent auction items also will also be available for anyone looking for delicious food or nice gifts for the holiday season.

Among the silent auction items are a 12-piece place serving set of Nortake china that was purchased in the early 1950s, a hand-crafted amd a black-walnut coffee grinder.

Another highlight of the auction is a beautiful porcelain tea set, table cloth, placemats and freshwater pearl and tiger eye necklace purchased in Kazakhstan and donated by a  church member who recently returned from a trip there.

The Berea United Methodist Women also have a new, hot-off -the-press cookbook that will be sold at the bazaar.

Come early and enjoy a delicious homemade casserole breakfast with your morning coffee or juice — and to get in on the best selections of food and gift items!

Then come back between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to check on the silent auction, take a look at things that were brought in later in the morning and eat lunch.

The luncheon menu is homemade chili, grilled-cheese sandwiches, hotdogs and an assortment of desserts.

Bids on the silent auction items will be closed at 2 p.m.  If you winning bid, you will be called at 2 p.m. to pick up your item between 2 and 3 p.m. or after church on Sunday morning.

Organizations that BUMW supports with proceeds from its annual bazaars include BUURR, Bereans United for Utility and Rent Relief, which always received 10 percent of the proceeds, Berea Hospital Lights for Life, the Methodist Children's Home in Versailles, the Redbird Mission, Project Graduation and United Methodist state and national mission projects.

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.
