Women's expo just in time for Mother's Day

The Parkland Women's Expo runs 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Parkland Town Hall, 6221 E. Veteran's Drive, just off County Highway K.

The event features more than 30 crafters and vendors with a wide variety of items just in time for Mother's Day.

A massage therapist will be on hand to offer her services.

Beverages and sweets will be available throughout the day, and a sloppy Joe lunch will be served. A bake sale and Chinese raffle round out the events.

The expo is a fundraiser for the Parkland Community Group with proceeds going to by playground equipment for small children and other projects like the community garden and children's activities.

A collection of personal items such as hygiene and cleaning supplies is accepted for the Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse, and each donation earns an entry into a drawing for special prizes.

Admission is free. For information, call Marianne Granquist at (715) 817-0848 or visit the Parkland Community Group on Facebook.
