Methodist Fall Bazaar is this Saturday, offers something for everyone

An original oil painting, lithograph of Cairo’s old Post Office from the early 1900s and frozen homemade casseroles are just a few of the offerings for sale at the Annual Fall Bazaar at Cairo First United Methodist Church Saturday.
The event coordinated by the Cairo First Church Ladies supports the group’s giving to missions, the majority of which are local, according to members. It kicks off at 8 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, located behind the church Sanctuary.
A silent auction, also scheduled, will end at noon. Among the items in the silent auction is an original oil painting by local artist Kelly Milko. Milko is donating the painting in memory of Patsy Moye. The artwork depicts a windmill birdhouse resting atop a Bible. Other items in the silent auction include the black and white lithograph of the old Post Office, wreaths, themed baskets of goodies, a set of china, and a Tiffany ice bucket.
Items for sale will include homemade goodies such as jams, jellies, cakes, breads, and cookies. Frozen casseroles will include poppy seed chicken with rice, chicken tetrazzini, lasagna, Mexican chicken, and breakfast. Other items are cornbread dressing, soups and fresh produce.
The bazaar will also have fall plants for sale such as mums along with fruit trees.
A white elephant sale includes many items from donors such as a large selection of used books.
Shoppers hungry for a bite may visit the “Calvary Cafe” for sausage biscuits in the morning or soup and sandwiches later.
Cairo First United Methodist Church is located at 318 S. Broad St.
