Roscoe UMC to have annual bazaar

| October 21, 2014

COSHOCTON – With Christmas not too far away, Roscoe United Methodist Church has been gearing up for their annual Holiday Bazaar. This year’s bazaar will be Thursday, Oct. 30 from 8:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.

“It’s a chance for those people who have to be at work at 9 a.m. to come to our bazaar before they go to work,” said Bee Lehner, who is in charge of the event.

Ladies at the church start working on the bazaar in January. About six to eight ladies meet the last Tuesday of every month at 1 p.m. at the church with the holidays on their mind as they begin making crafts for the annual bazaar.

When you walk into the church’s narthex, you’ll be greeted with the sights and sounds of Christmas. A breakfast boutique featuring specialty coffees, teas, and breakfast breads will be served until 10:30 a.m. when lunch and dinner will then be served until closing. If you’re the type who loves to curl up by the Christmas tree with a good book, visit the used book worm store where you can purchase books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and videos. Find a new treasure in the Trash to Treasure section located in the gymnasium, or satisfy your sweet tooth at the bake sale table where you can browse and buy cakes, cookies, brownies, and all kinds of snacks. To learn how to make some of those treats, purchase and browse through 45 pages of the 2014 annual RUMC Christmas Cookbook entitled, Yummy Desserts.

If you love Nellie United Methodist Church’s homemade noodles, you’re in luck. This year, they will be on sale at the Roscoe bazaar. Also new this year is buckets of cookie dough, six different kinds!

There will also be a silent auction with a handmade quilt, a decorated Christmas tree, a holiday centerpiece and table runner, a small wooden table, and an American flag and pole. Tickets will be sold the day of for $5 for six tickets.

If you’re an Ohio State fan, be sure to visit the Buckeye Booth with homemade candied buckeyes and other Ohio State paraphernalia. Also included in the bazaar will be 10 themed gift baskets, grave saddles for sale and order, wrapped candy bars, holiday ornaments, handmade greeting cards, and returning this year are those beautiful glittery Christmas table decorations.

“People always look forward to coming to our bazaar each year,” Lehner said. “It’s a little different than other bazaars and we always have a good turnout.”

The money raised from the bazaar will go towards community agencies and charities.
