Penland School of Crafts sessions end with an auction of work donated by students, instructors, and friends. These auctions are celebrations of the work done in the classes and an opportunity for neighbors, travelers, and craft lovers to enjoy the energy of a Penland session. The proceeds from these auctions support scholarship programs. No admission charged.
We would like to invite you and as many groups as possible to participate in a community-wide, safe, family environment on Halloween. From 4:00 to 6:00 pm on Tuesday, October 31, the traditional trick or treating for candy will take place at local businesses and around the square. We would like to invite the area businesses, local non-profits, and church groups to decorate their storefronts and participate in this event. If you are a business or organization that does not have a storefront downtown, you can set up in a space on the Square. We would also like to have all types of activities for children on the Square. If you would like to plan an activity on the Square please contact us immediately so that we can plan the appropriate spaces. This is lots of fun for the whole family! Let us know if you want to participate by emailing or phoning your RSVP by October 20 to the Yancey Chamber of Commerce at firstname.lastname@example.org or 682-7413.
