The ladies from the Bucksport Garden Club will have their popular pie and plant for sale from 9am-1pm, and this year will also offer some wooden garden decor, Christmas ornaments and their wonderful decorative wreathes. Everything for sale is all made by the garden club members, often "one-of-a-kind."
Several Artists will be on site to show their crafts and local authors will present their books for signing. Lisa Oettinger will demonstrate her jewelry making techniques (1:00 pm), Jeff Longar will entertain with his wood carving/boat hull-making demo (11:00 am), John Wotton will work throughout the day (when there is sun!) to show how he burns wood designs by using a magnifying glass and the heat of the sun.
