53rd Annual Grimes dinner and bazaar scheduled for November 3 The Grimes Ladies Aid Society will host its traditional kick off to the holiday season in November.
The group’s 53rd annual dinner and bazaar is set for November 3 in Grimes. The event is a long standing tradition in Grimes, held each year at the Grand Island Elementary School.
The all-you-can-eat turkey and ham dinner complete with all of the trimmings will begin at 5pm. Tickets for dinner are $10 for adults, $5 for children 6 to 12, and free to children 5 and under.
As in past years, the event also includes a Country Store filled with linens, Christmas gifts, boutique items and mystery packages for all ages.
In addition to the Country Store, the Aid members also provide homemade ‘goodies’ and local produce for sale. As is also tradition, there is the annual quilt raffle.
More than 100 years old, the Grimes Ladies Aid was founded in 1901. The focus of the group is to assist in maintaining the 137-year-old Grimes Community Church. It is also dedicated
to supporting the school and other community needs.
The Grimes Civic Association will also be on hand with its annual raffle of items donated from individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the county. The Civic Association hosts this annual raffle at the Bazaar as an effort of support for the Grimes Scout Cabin. The Cabin is a popular meeting place in the community dating from the 1930’s. ■
