It's the second annual last minute day of shopping put on by the Elks Lodge, and organizers tried to make sure the list of local vendors and artists on-hand will cover a wide variety of product offerings so all your gift-giving needs are taken care of. Music, snacks, and a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus are all a part of the festivities, which run from 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 17th, to 5 p.m., Sunday, December 18th. In addition, all vendors donated an item for a silent auction to benefit disabled veterans. Event information is on the Elks Lodge Facebook page.
