ASCAS craft fair a success


A Second Chance Animal Shelter held its annual Fall Crafts Fair and Food and Entertainment Extravaganza under clear, cool skies on November 5 in the heart of downtown Manning.

Almost 30 vendors vied for the strollers’ attention as they browsed the canopied tables. Everything from hand-crafted artwork, clothing, and jewelry from local artisans, produce, and items straight from local farms. There was also the freshest baked goods on display, along with a wide variety of food truck vendors/ Kevin Jarvis and his Green Swamp Collective provided non-stop entertainment with music to suit every taste.

ASCAS had its own special area, with an extensive array of home-baked cakes, pies, cookies, and brownies for sale. They also had hand-made crafts of their own making and items from their store, A Second Chance Thrift. Several donated items were raffled off to the visiting throngs, along with a 50/50 drawing, bringing some much appreciated additional income from the event. The 50/50 winner (108!) promptly donated her winnings back to the shelter in exchange for a deep purple ASCAS designer tee!

A Second Chance Animal Shelter, as the only shelter in the entire county, and a no-kill, non-profit depends on the success of events such as this to bring in both much needed income as well as to raise awareness about responsible pet ownership, and the plight of Clarendon’s abandoned, homeless dogs and cats. If you would like to know more about them, volunteer, or make a donation, visit ASecondChanceAnimalShelter.com or their Facebook page at facebook.com/ASCASManning.
