Houston County Courier
The Presbyterian Women of First Presbyterian Church of Crockett will celebrate the 39th year of their Country Pantry and Bazaar Friday, Nov. 15, in the church Fellowship Hall. Shopping hours will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Presbyterian Women combine fellowship and hard work with their craftiness, creativity and artistry, so that you may purchase unique and one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures at this annual fundraiser. Craft Days are held monthly and hardly a month goes by without someone introducing a new project. The Presbyterian Women have been crocheting lattice yarn necklaces, crafting scissor pouches, sewing aprons, microwave minimitts and microwave potato pouches; weaving ruffled scarves, sewing chenille pumpkins, making wooden yard art, crocheting covered hangers, making wreaths from corks and canning jar lids, button bracelets and sun catchers. And guess what . . . that isn't even everything! To promote fair trade, globally designed jewelry and gift items from SERRV will be sold. Every year the selection grows and improves. All canning season, members have been putting up salsa, fig and pear preserves, jalapeno jelly, pear relish, blackberry jam, pepper sauce, jezebel sauce, bread 'n butter pickles, green tomato pickles, fire 'n ice pickles and honey. Just days before the Country Pantry, many will be baking amazing cakes, gourmet brownies, divinity, toffee, pralines, peanut brittle, cookies, fudge, lemon bread, pumpkin bread, biscotti, and strudel. All of these scrumptious items can be purchased for immediate use or frozen and enjoyed during the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays. Don't forget the homemade lunch served on Friday, Nov. 15. Choose from four kinds of soup (blackeye pea chili, cream of potato, polish potato and vegetable beef), four types of sandwiches (chicken salad, ham salad, egg salad and pimento cheese), dessert.
