Ramping up for the Holiday Craft Fair and Raffle

The Young at Heart group’s biggest event of the year is Nov. 3 from 4-8 p.m. and Nov. 4 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and your help is needed.

More than 200 vendors, artists, and crafters are expected at the Douglas County Senior & Community Center, 1329 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville. Volunteers may sign up for as little as one, two-hour shift, or more if desired and most of the jobs are sit-down. This year’s goal is to raise $10,000, but that can’t happen without your help. Jobs include set-up and take-down, kitchen work, greeters, counters, raffle-ticket sellers, and a few people to call out the raffle winners. Everybody is invited to join the team.

Contact Alice Artella at or see her at the center Tuesday and Friday in the Ceramic Room if you are willing to volunteer to help in any capacity.

Do you make handcrafted items? There are stations available, so if you’re interested in renting one, please email Lucie, the YAH Craft Fair chair at, or phone 266-8781, to leave a message for her.

Anyone able to donate a raffle prize should contact YAH president Andrea at or phone 364-4734. Prizes are a valuable part of the event and very much appreciated.

Business sponsorships are welcomed, and supporters will be well showcased at the fair. Email the sponsor coordinator at, or call 364-4734 if you are willing to help. Leave your name, address, and phone number at any of the respective phone numbers and the volunteer in charge will call you back. Thanks in advance for supporting this worthwhile event.
