Small town depends on craft fair

City officials are hoping the craft fair at the Henrietta Community Center this Saturday is a big hit because the city is depending on it.
Henrietta Mayor Pro Tem Kelly Heber said proceeds from the event go to help maintain playground equipment in the city park.
The money also goes to help fund youth activities, like the recent Halloween party and the upcoming visit from Santa with presents. Santa will be making his stop on Saturday Dec. 13.
The event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with a biscuits and gravy breakfast until 10:30 p.m. Cost for breakfast is $3.50 per person. There will also be a chili luncheon from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. that includes dessert and tea or coffee. Cost is $5 per person.
This is the second year for the event, and according to City Clerk Margie Long there will be 11 booths. Long said last year there was only four.
Items on display will include aprons, baskets, crocheted items, dish rags, glass beads, kids clothes, pillows, quilts, woodcrafts and Tupperware. The event runs until 4:30 p.m.
