The "Country Store" will be open at 8 a.m. Homemade baked goods and produce will be featured at the store. The auction will start at 10 a.m. Ripley has several talented members that have made many beautiful, one-of-a-kind items and crafts. Some of the items that will be auctioned include: wood items, quilts and blankets, homemade ice cream, jelly, noodles and holiday crafts. A sampling of items can be seen in the window of Reuman's Clothing in Traer.
Lunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ripley's famous maidrites, BBQ pork, salads, homemade ice cream, and delicious pies will be served. These items will also be available for carry-out.
