There will be a community Christmas bazaar on Nov. 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Blackey Community Center. Art, crafts and antiques will be sold! A great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping started. Veggie soup and chili will be available, so come shop, have dinner and sit a spell to visit with neighbors. Proceeds from the food sales will be used to buy equipment for the center. See you there, tell your friends!
