Spring bazaar gives shoppers seasonal options
April 5, 2011
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. - Aberdeen Proving Ground's two-day spring bazaar drew hundreds of shoppers who wanted to get a jump on season purchases.
The event was held at the APG North (Aberdeen) recreation center March 23-24 and followed
the success of its 2010 fall and holiday bazaars, according to Rhonda Little, who helped coordinate the shopping extravaganza.
Little said feedback has been positive and attendees have already asked for more events like this. Arts and crafts, jewelry, sweet treats, photography and more were offered by more than 30 vendors.
Grand prizes, many donated by several of the vendors, included a Kindle wireless reading device and four tickets to the Lynyrd Skynyrd / Doobie Brothers concert to be held on Shine Sports Field Aug. 20. (Visit www.apgmwr.com for more information or to purchase tickets.) The event was hosted by the installation's Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
Grammy-nominated flutist David Young provided music and sold CDs during the event.
