Spring has sprung in Mooreland, and it is time for the Art Club Flea Market and their delicious Bar-B-Cue Dinner. While it is only the second year for this exact event, the Flea Market is actually an extension of what used to be the Spring Arts Festival, which ran for 29 years. Mr. Beatley, the Mooreland Art Instructor said the change was necessary because the club membership had decreased continually over the last several years and what with so many parents now having multiple jobs, or both parents having to work, parental help was harder to find.
While the Flea Market is a bit smaller that the old Art Show, it still has kept some of the great crafters and fine artists, while also adding commercial booths like Tupperware and Mary Kay. There will also be civic and community booths, such as bake sales by some of our churches and even a booth featuring local law enforcement and even explorers. Some of the crafts includes hand-built canes, decorated baskets, wooden toys, and even homemade jelly’s. We were told that some of the true flea market booths will include TV’s, toys, clothing, books, appliances, and even Coach purses.
While at the flea market, stop by the great concession stand and grab a Nacho, a chili dog, or a cheeseburger. Also, do not forget to go by the art club booth, sign up for our free door prizes.
The flea market opens to the public at 9 am and continues till 5:30 this Saturday. Once again it will be held at the Mooreland Elementary Gym and Cafeteria. For those of you who are not knowledgeable of the local geography, look the local grain Elevators and go three blocks north, and go one block west alongside the south side of the Elementary School.
It should be noted that all of the profits from the flea market booth rental will be split evenly between the Mooreland Art Club fund and the Elementary School Supply Fund.
Oh, do not forget the great Bar-B-Cue dinner featuring BBQ beef, pulled pork, baked potatoes, green beans, rolls, baked bean, dessert and even fresh tea. This great meal is only $9 for adults, $6 for children over 3, students, and senior citizens over 65. Either call for tickets at 580-994-5426 or pay at the door when you arrive. Since the dinner will run from 4:30 to 7:30 that evening, and the flea market will last from 9 am till5:30pm, come by early enough to shop in the gym then sit down and make yourself at home at the Bar-B-Cue Dinner in the cafeteria. Shop for some great items, eat some great food, visit with some old friends, and there may even be some entertainment.
We will see all of you at the Mooreland Spring Flea Market and Bar-b-cue dinner, remember to stick around after the dinner and you may pick up a good deal on the meat that wasn’t sold.
