Community Table: Our guest is Cathy Beneke who tells us: “We produce over 150 Christmas baskets a year for needy families and individuals in Roe Jan area. The food in the baskets is all purchased locally, mostly in collaboration with Hillsdale IGA. During basket pick-up, donated winter coats and other clothing are also available. Community baskets accepts monetary donations, and also donations of winter clothing and food (please check with organizers to see what is needed. Our mission is to provide families in need with a festive and nutritious Christmas dinner. We believe that coming together to help our neighbors is an important part of our community.

Guest Educator and Demo: Lewis Cleale will be at market with a very special event: “a shearing demonstrations near our tent to show people where their wool sweaters and yarns come from. We propose doing one shearing per hour. We would have a little holding pen.
Our mill business will primarily process customers’ wool into yarns and rovings. I will also have a mill shop in front that will sell yarns that we produce under our label and hopefully, space for classes in all different fiber arts.”
