Extension Homemakers Director Judy Tulley, from left, and volunteer Susan Vaught assist patrons Debbie Riddle and Frankie Harwood Saturday at the organization's annual Holiday Expo at the Fairgrounds. Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, the traditional kick-off to the holiday season saw fewer vendors this year to allow for social distancing; of 26 spaces available, 21 vendors participated in the event, which serves as the club's largest fundraiser of the year. The club uses funds from the Expo, partly, to send kids to summer camp each year. The club also donates books to elementary schools and partners with Head Start to support literacy in youth.
