Tyson Ladies Aid annual bazaar, August 10th, 10am – 2pm

From Sally Scarp

The Tyson Ladies’ Aid Association will hold its 103rd annual summer bazaar on the green at Veterans Memorial Park in Ludlow, Vermont on Saturday, August 10th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. rain or shine. The event will feature a chicken barbeque with corn on the cob and homemade coleslaw and baked beans. Baked goods, such as pies, cakes, cookies and bread will also be offered for sale.

“This is such a fun event, especially since Ludlow no longer celebrates the zucchini harvest”, said Janine Norman, one of the organizers.  “We have some amazing bakers who are very proud of their wares and the natural ingredients they use. This year we will continue our basket raffle for over 50 themed baskets made and donated by our members”, she continues. “Two new additions to this year’s bazaar is the addition of a crafts sale and a book sale.”

The Tyson Ladies’ Aid Association was founded in 1880 to raise funds to bring a church to Tyson.  In 1887, the Ladies had purchased the Tyson Iron Works office and established the Tyson Library at that site.  After a period of inactivity, they reorganized in 1910 and have operated continuously since then, using money raised to support the library, fund scholarships and benefit the local community.
