This year's bazaar was the Lewisburg congregation's thirty- ninth. Member Libby Dempsey, who has lived In the area since 1941. said the church initiated the annual event in 1951 shortly after the present chtirch was built. "We started the bazaar to help with the indebtedness," she said. "Since then it•s been an annual money-maker to help with comnmnlty projects, Dioce- san projects, and other needs." Close to 200 attend each year, Mrs Dempsey said. Perhaps drawing more attention than the sale of crafts and "white ele- phants" is the accompanying luncheon, served this year to 130.. On the menu were "ham roll-ups with cheese sauce, as- paragus salad• curried fruit, rolls, and amaretta tortonni. "The community always looks forward to this bazaar," Mrs Dempsey said. "It is our women's big project of the year. Although it's a lot of hard work• it includes some great fellowship we wouldn't get otherwise. We pre- pare for it all year." Mrs Dempsey said she begins collecting fabric for her own ba- zaar craft projects in February and Mar,"h. "Anytime I see fabric I think I could use. I'll get it. I really start working In earnest in early September." Approximately 35 church members help with the annual event, which is normally held the Saturday before Thanksgiving. featuring smoked meats, cheeses, crackers, chocolates, nuts and shortbread. from $995 shipped anywhere 536-4051 Designer Selections 62 IN, St. W.S.S.
