For more than 60 years the women of the First United Methodist Church of Demopolis have unofficially started the Christmas season in the city with their annual bazaar.

It is time again for the UMW Bazaar, an event that is anticipated—and worked on—throughout the year.

The bazaar will be held Wednesday, Nov. 8, in the Methodist Church education building, and all the favorites will be back: baked goods, Attic Treasures, silent auction, handmade gifts and, of course, the luncheon featuring the traditional chicken salad plate.

Doors are open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the luncheon will be served beginning at 11 a.m.
