Last Farmers' Market of 2011

Saturday was a busy day. We went to the Christmas Farmers' Market in the morning, traveled downtown to the Firemen's Christmas Parade at 5:00. and followed up with the GSC Christmas Choir at 7:00. A good day!

At the Farmers' Market, the serious expression on the face of friend, Paul, was the result of Judy giving him another task for the ecumenical group, Marthas and Marys.

What a kind gentleman to help!

Teresa was selling coffee and tea.

There was certainly a festive atmosphere at the market. Mary Lee is always there as the official greeter!

The Christmas tree sales seemed brisk. My thoughts were on how Christmas memories have changed from the past. I remember the smell of the evergreens in the house. Now with technology changes, the grand kids will remember the smell of the plastic trees.

As true with each market, it was a great gathering of friends. Dan, Margie, and Anita were sharing in conversation and hot chocolate.

The weather was cool, but the sun was shining brightly. You will notice all are bundled up to keep warm - even man's best friend!

The Glenville Baptist Church provided hot soup and sandwiches.

I love this Charley Brown tree. I wonder if anyone took this critter home?

The market had crafts, honey, and a good supply of fruits and vegetables.

Here is John, who is running as a Gilmer County Democratic candidate to the US Senate. He is partaking of the good Baptist offerings.

It was a great end for the 2011 Glenville Farmers' Market.
