• Holy Trinity to host bazaar and market

Holy Trinity Episcopal Church will hold its annual bazaar and artisan market this Saturday, Dec. 1, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the church fellowship hall, located at 193 Old Greenville Highway in Clemson, across from Clemson University.

The bazaar will feature beautifully handcrafted items made by talented artisans from around the Upstate and members of Holy Trinity. Examples include jewelry, gift baskets, soaps, quilts, woodworking, scarves, handbags, ornaments, and candles, American Girl doll clothes in sets, as well as homemade take-home frozen meals, baked and canned goods, and the best lunch in town. The event also will include a silent auction. All proceeds from the event, which dates back more than 50 years, will be shared among several charities. In recent years, funds have been donated to Clemson Community Care, Family Promise of Pickens County, Collins Children’s Home, Our Daily Rest, Safe Harbor, Habitat for Humanity of Anderson, Clemson Free Clinic and tuition grants for the Episcopal Day School.

The club is beginning a dynamic upswing in membership and is looking for movers and shakers with fresh ideas who want to make a difference in the community. The Pickens Lions meet the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7 p.m. at Pizza Inn in Pickens.
