The Grimes dinner and bazaar sets date

The Grimes Ladies Aid Society will hold its annual dinner and bazaar at 5 PM on Saturday, Nov. 3, at Grand Island Elementary School.

“We will be serving our delicious turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings,” said Jacquie Weare, Grimes Ladies Aid Dinner Volunteer.

The cost is $12 for adults, and $5 for children aged 5 to 12 and free for children under the age of 5.

Bazaar booths will begin selling at 5 PM, and will include linens, crafts which include many Christmas items, boutique items, mystery packages for all ages,

“The country store will have local produce, baked goods, candies and jellies available to purchase,” said Weare. “The Grimes Civic Association will also sponsor a raffle table which helps us to maintain our scout cabin, a popular meeting place since the 1930’s. The most exciting part of the evening is always the awarding of our beautiful quilt.”

“All the ladies aiders and many grimes friends work hard to make this a delightful evening,” Weare added.

The Grimes Ladies Aid was organized in 1901. The annual dinner and bazaar is a wonderful small town celebration shared by the entire community of Grimes and its neighbors.

“The public is cordially invited to attend this once a year fundraiser,” said Weare. “This helps us to maintain the beautiful Grimes community church, which was built in 1875, as well as supporting our school and various community needs.”
