about - Love What You Buy Buy What You Love, Duffield, VA
I am writing on the behalf of Gladeville Chapter #171 Order of the Eastern Star of Virginia located in Wise, Va, where I am currently serving as the Worthy Matron. We are interested in finding local festivals/shows that we may set up to sell products to raise funds for paying our expenses and most importantly, to have sufficient funds to enable contribution to local projects in our community that reach out to the needy. We also need more funds to help make even more grants and scholarships to outstanding students in the area that have limited resources. We would have various things to sell, including but not exclusively: jewelry, crafts, and homemade foods that we make at home then bring to the festivals all-ready wrapped and ready to go...no cooking on site although we would sometimes need electricity to keep foods warm if that indeed be the case at that particular time. Benevolence is our main purpose! But; unfortunately, lower attendance and decreased contributions in recent years has made it urgently necessary for us to vigorously pursue various avenues for growing our funds.
