Fayetteville and Oak Hill will be buzzing with Christmas shoppers this weekend. Also on tap is the annual Christmas bazaar hosted by the Fayetteville United Methodist Women, as well as the last fundraiser of the year of the Goldeneers Senior Citizens. The ARC’s 20th annual festival has outgrown its previous location at the Lewis Community Foundation’s Christian Community Center on Central Avenue in Oak Hill, so this year will also offer vendors at the O.C. Rushing Center of the Oak Hill Church of the Nazarene at 1913 Main Street East. Those who visit the festival at both sites will be included in a drawing for a $100 gift card. Christmas music will fill the air all day, and door prizes will be give away each hour from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The military tree ceremony is set for 1 p.m., and Santa Claus will be on hand from 2 to 4 p.m. The ARC also will offer BBQs and hot dogs for sale. For more information, call the local ARC office at 304-469-4636. Also at the Rushing Center, the Goldeneers Senior Citizens will offer hot dogs, barbecues, beans and cornbread and a variety of soups, and a good selection of homemade baked goods. In Fayetteville the United Methodist Women will host their annual Christmas bazaar from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Fayetteville United Methodist Church. This year’s theme is “Christ Is the Light of the World.” There will be arts and crafts, vintage items, a bake sale, hot dogs and homemade pies.
