Holiday Market open for local vendors and a worthy cause

Hosted by Naja's Hillbilly and Hospital Auxillary units, the event brings in more than 20 local vendors.

The organization says the market is for people to get to know the shrine center better and feature some of the craftsmanship throughout the community. Money raised from the vendor's space rental will support hospital travel and wheelchair funds for children in need.

Natalie Johnson says, "We work hard so we can support the kids. Everything that we do in the community with Shrine circuses, everybody knows the shrine circuses but our main goal is to help the kids walk, to get better, to have a normal life."

Don Stover says, "We have burn centers, orthopedic centers all over the U.S. and around the world actually that's our mission to help those kids are in need of help."

The Holiday Market will run again Sunday Nov. 5, from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m..
