The Pike County Cattlewomen’s Christmas Bazaar on Saturday at Cattleman Park was the better than the best, so far.

The 7th annual bazaar featured high quality merchandise created by outstandingly talented vendors and the door traffic was steady throughout the day.

Tammy Powell, Pike County Cattlewomen member, said more than 550 shoppers came to browse and buy. In addition, lots of children made their Christmas wishes known to Santa Claus.

“Everyone was in good spirits and had a good time shopping and enjoying the fellowship that is a part of the Cattlewomen’s Christmas Bazaar,” Powell said. “The vendors were busy throughout the day, the bazaar concession stand was a-buzz, the weather was great, so it was a good day all around.”

Powell expressed appreciation to all who helped make the Cattlewomen’s philanthropy event a great success – the sponsors, the vendors and “especially our customers.”

“The funds raised by the Christmas bazaar go back into the community in the form of scholarships and youth livestock activities. We also support Pike County’s Relay for Life and Heart Walk fundraising campaigns. So, the Pike County Cattlewomen’s Christmas Bazaar benefits Pike County in many different ways.”

The Cattlewomen are busy throughout the year and new members are always welcome.

“Right now, we have 61 members and our doors are always open,” Powell said. “And you don’t have to own cattle to be a member. You just need to have a heart for Pike County and its people.”
