Shop locally this season

Now that holiday shopping is in full swing, King George residents are invited to deck their halls with local products.

A “Shop Locally” event is planned on Saturday, Dec. 11., at King George Elementary School. Vendors will be set up in the parking lot and the cafeteria, and the event will be held rain, snow or shine.

The event is sponsored by The Journal Press, Inc. Members of the award-winning King George Farmers Market will have Christmas trees, pastries, meats, seafood and produce. Artists and county craftsmen will have food, art items, pottery and photographs. Community groups will sell their season fund-raising products.

The event also includes carolers, Santa and music. There’s no admission fee. For more information, contact Lori Deem at 540/709-7495 or
