Bazaar helps fund Ovarian Cancer Screening Program

Letcher County Extension Homemakers sponsored their third annual Holiday Bazaar at the County Extension Office on Saturday, Nov. 13. There were 33 venders/groups/ individuals who rented table space, with those funds raised going to support the free Ovarian Cancer Screening Program at the University of Kentucky. There are currently 184 Letcher County women being screened each year.

There was a variety of items available at the bazaar: hand-crocheted wearables, canned jams and jellies, wood products, jewelry, handmade clocks, baked goodies, Christmas décor, purses, Mary Kay products, painted gourds, hair bows and educational information on breast cancer, cervical cancer, organ donation and ovarian cancer.

The list of vendors included Alice Craft, Dorothy Miles, Cecilia Deatheridge, Leeann Mullins, Shannon Bates, Moran and Illa Blair, Brandy Hall, Becky Pigman, Berma Matthews and Connie Blair, Valerie Saurer and Candice Philpot, Brandy Hammonds, Barbara Begley, Sandra Bailey, Dee Dee Leach, Kathy Runyan, Gertrude Maggard, Amanda Lucas, Melanie Baker and Pam Baker, Gwen Whitaker and staff members, Judith Vermillion, Cheryl Hall, Tracy King, Allison Adams, Shawn Hunsucker and Lauriena Jesse.
