This year’s Alumni Association craft fair and bake was a booming success! Held on Homecoming day, Sat., Oct. 17, in the foyer of the Clayton Center for the Arts, the event drew guests both young and old.
In the darkness of 5:00 a.m., members of Maryville College’s Blount County Alumni Chapter made their way to the Clayton Center to begin set-up for the event.
When the event began at 9:00 a.m., the venue was packed with vendors selling everything from brownies to bracelets. Every slot available for vendors was used.
The money raised during the bake sale and craft fair will go towards a scholarship fund for local Blount Country students. The bake sale brought in over $2,550 without counting donations received by the Willard House on Maryville College’s campus, and the craft fair also brought in $3,375.
