Description
The American Legion Auxiliary of Louisville will hold their 9th Annual Holiday Craft Bazaar from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, November 19-20, 2011, in the banquet hall of The American Legion at 1150 Pine Street.
The Craft Bazaar in Louisville is being held again this year to raise funds through the sale of booth space to local citizens, artists and craftsman. All proceeds from the booth rentals this year have been designated to support the Veterans Hospitals and other Auxiliary programs. The two-day booth rental charge is $50 and a 1-day booth rental is $30. Information and exhibitor registration forms may be obtained from Judy Coleman at or by email at . Exhibitor proceeds from the sale of their own handcrafted items or merchandize are their own. This is a great way for members and citizens to earn extra money. Admission to the Holiday Craft Bazaar is FREE to shop or browse. The public is invited to stop by The American Legion in Louisville on Saturday and Sunday, November 19 and 20. There will be Free Door Prize Drawings throughout the day for shoppers present at the event. The Auxiliary will sponsor a booth offering homemade baked goods from their members.

THE NUTCRACKER
Over the next several weeks, posters and flyers will go up around Boulder County and the surrounding area displaying a large nutcracker and providing information about the event and booth rentals. The nutcracker theme began seven years ago and will be continued at the event this year with the returning display of a 7 foot tall handcrafted nutcracker named “Gunny” at the front entrance to The American Legion. Gunny is on loan from a Louisville resident and member of The American Legion.

THE EVENT
“The Holiday Craft Bazaar provides an excellent opportunity for our organization to offer a venue for members, local individuals and creative citizens to display and sell their work within our community,” said Judy Coleman, Committee Chairperson of The American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 111, Louisville. “In the past years the response from the community has been excellent and we are counting on everyone to come shop to support these talented exhibitors again this year.” This is the largest fund raising event of the year for the Auxiliary of Louisville.

THE AUXILIARY
The American Legion Auxiliary, the world’s largest, nonprofit, patriotic women’s service organization, was founded in 1919 to support the work of the American Legion and to serve the needs of American veterans and their families. Unit 111 of Louisville represents just a part of the national organization nearly 900,000 strong with members in 8,900 communities. For every man in World War I who endured the dangers and hardships of camp, shore and battlefront, there was a woman serving at home to help make possible America’s victory – his mother, wife, sister, daughter and granddaughter. After the war was one in 1919, these men banded together to form The American Legion to carry forward their service to the country in peacetime. It was only natural that the women serving and supporting on the home front would desire to continue to serve also. The result of their desire to continue service to others resulted in the formationn of The American Legion Auxiliary.
The programs sponsored by and supported by The American Legion Auxiliary include Americanism, Emergency Fund, Children and Youth, Community Service, Constitution, Education, and Veteran’s Affairs and Rehabilitation. The Poppy Program is the oldest and most recognized Auxiliary program. Each year around Memorial Day, Auxiliary volunteers distribute millions of bright red crepe paper poppies in exchange for contributions to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans. Many people remember this program from their childhood in communities across the United States. The local Auxiliary also actively supports Girls State/Nation, the High School Oratorical Scholarship Contest, several child welfare programs, and the many efforts of The American Legion, Post 111, in all their programs benefiting the community.
The Mission of the Auxliary is:
•     To support The American Legion programs for veterans, young people and communities
•     To provide for today’s needs while being advocates for a brighter future
•     To advance the understanding of patriotism and responsibility of citizenship
•     To promote individual integrity and family values
•     To ensure as volunteers, that members continue to be the leaders in all that is good in this nation today, tomorrow and for generations to come through serving others first and not self.

Membership information for The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and The Sons of The American Legion will be available the day of the Craft Bazaar. Additional information about The American Legion and the Auxiliary: http://www.legion-aux.org or http://www.legion.org
