The Bazaar will look quite different this year. Due to the pandemic we are trying something new with an online auction and Norwegian Takeaway. You will still see some of your favorite things on the auction and the food menu. Don’t forget to buy your Golden Raffle tickets also. Hopefully many of you will participate in some aspect of the Bazaar as this is our largest fundraiser of the year. Food, raffle tickets and shopping! What else could you need?
