GENOA – The Genoa Area Women’s Club’s 25th annual Wonderful World of Christmas craft and vendor show will be held Sunday, Nov. 10, at Genoa-Kingston High School.

The show will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Santa will be there from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. for photos and to hear special wishes.

More than 125 crafters and business vendors will have items on display. New items for sale this year include small and large stained glass panels and caricatures drawn while you wait. Bake sales, food booths and more than 300 grab bag gifts will also be available.

Entertainment will be provided by fourth grade students from Genoa Elementary School, the Belvidere North High School choir and a local guitarist.

Admission is $1 for adults and 50 cents for children. There will be more than 100 chances to win door prizes. There will also be a 50/50 cash raffle and a raffle of a hand-crocheted afghan.

This event benefits the club’s college scholarship fund. Scholarships are awarded each year to deserving graduating high school seniors. Last year, four students were awarded $1,000 each. The club also donates money throughout the year to community area programs and to people in need of help.

The club is celebrating its 66th year. Meetings are held once a month, and are open to women from Genoa, Kingston and the surrounding area. For more information, call Nancy at 815-761-0515.
