— The Ouachita County Extension Homemaker’s (OCEH) invite you to attend their annual

Autumn Market on

Nov. 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church located at 313 Greening

St NW.

The Autumn Market, the main fund raiser for OCEH, consist of a meal, shopping,

and a silent auction. The goal is to raise funds for a

$500 scholarship for each school district in Ouachita

County.

Lunch, $15, will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This

fee includes a cookbook filled with recipes provided by the OCEH. Leota

Harvey, OCEH president, stated that the lunch will offer a sample of featured recipes in the cookbook. Cookbooks can be purchased separately

for $2.

Although the market has been held for years, the format will change a bit this

year.

“We’ve been doing this probably 15 years or more, where we serve lunch and have the different vendors,” Harvey said. “This time we have invited vendors from the community to sell crafts, nuts, and baked

goods.”
