Holiday Wreathe Silent Auction

*Note: date and time in the description is correct, not event.
If you are looking for a seasonal decoration for your home, or for a gift for someone that will brighten their home and their holiday, come to the 2nd floor of the Market House between the hours of 11:00AM and 4:00 Pm Monday thru Friday, and 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday and bid on one of these beautiful hand decorated wreaths—many of which have been donated by area community members in support of this, our annual fund raiser.

Bidding will begin on November 17th, and closes on December 8th. at 4:00 PM.

Winning bidders may pick up their wreaths on Saturday December 9th from 10:00-2:00PM.

Our volunteers have spent a lot of time and energy on this project. We hope you find them to be as lovely as we do.

Model Railroad Display

The French Creek Valley Railroad Historical Society will have its model railroad layout on display at Kmart. This will likely be the last event at the Kmart building, as it is due to be razed next year. Come spend a little time with us, and say farewell to a long time anchor of the community.

The hours may be extended if conditions warrant it.

We will have a train set raffle to benefit Toys for Tots of Crawford County as well as merchandise in case you are looking for that special gift for a rail enthusiast. We will have our calendars, Erie RR book, a book on the Atlantic & Great Western ( a predecessor of the Erie Railroad), magazines, a compact disc containing all the pages in a 100+ year old Erie Railroad text book, model railroad equipment to help with your layout, and our apparel consisting of hats, t shirts, polo shirts, and sweat shirts.

We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
