Crothersville Area Revitalization and Development (CARD) is gearing up for the Crothersville Spring Kick-Off to be held on Saturday, March 13, from 9 to 3 at the Crothersville-Vernon Township Volunteer Fire Department.
This event will feature an indoor flea market, including M and C Treasures (Machell Mullins, with purses, jewelry, switchflops, and other items); Usborne Books and More (Dawn Cohee, with children’s books and games); Kreative Keepsakes Photography (Michelle Davis, photography, booking appointments, with a drawing for 25% discount through the end of April); handcrafted items (Bertie Hall, with tissue box covers, sweatshirts, casserole covers, and all sorts of bags); It’s Just Jewelry (Sarah Whipker, with handmade and commercial jewelry); Tupperware (Brenda Sessions); Peanut Dog for Morgan (fund-raiser with flea market items); Handmade Jewelry (Ginger Johnson); Sugar and Spice Boutique (Courtney and Dee Kruse, with handmade hairbows and caps); Dorsey Plumbing (Andy Dorsey, with free drawings); and Stamping Granny (Cindy Galbraith, making to take).
Those attending may register for two free drawings–one for a ham, and one for a $25 gift certificate for Tanner’s Market. The drawings will be at 2:45, and individuals must be present to win.
Also included is food available for purchase throughout the day. This includes sloppy Joe’s, hot dogs, Coney dogs, chips, tea and lemonade, by CARD, and desserts by the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Fire Department.
Parents may bring children to visit with Peter Cottontail from 1 to 3 p.m. They should bring their own cameras if they wish to photograph their children, or they may have Michelle Davis do on-the-spot take-home photographs for $3 each.
The Spring Kick-Off is sponsored by CARD (Crothersville Area Revitalization and Development). Proceeds are being used to buy a flag pole and flags for the Fire Department. CARD funds are administered by the Community Foundation of Jackson County, and are used for projects designed to improve the Crothersville community.
