Deuces will be wild today at the Brownwood Rotary Club Arts and Crafts Show.
The club will give away a 32-inch flat-screen television set at the end of the two-day show this afternoon at the Brownwood Coliseum, and chances to win will be doubled, today only, for those buying a $2 admission ticket. Attendees will also receive two chances for every purchase from a vendor today.
“The show offers items so diverse that nearly every type of hand-crafted item will be available,” Laura Terhune, Rotary club past-president and project chairperson, said.
The hours will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.
Featured artisans will consist of iron and metal art, hand-crafted clothing, jewelry, home accessories and much more. Fine artists will include paintings and pen and ink drawings. Several crafters will offer selections of homemade candles, soaps, lotions and food items. Numerous jewelry vendors are also on hand.
The drawing for the television set, which is on display at the front of the coliseum, will be held at 4 p.m. today, and the winner need not be present to win.
The Brownwood Arts & Crafts Fair is sponsored by the Brownwood Rotary Club and proceeds benefit youth projects including the distribution of student dictionaries to every third-grade student in Brown County. That distribution began Thursday, and continues this month in the county’s elementary schools.
