FHU Associates Fall Market 2015

Every now and then, but not too often, I have a booth at a vendor event. The most important one I participate in each year is an event for a group I am a member of - the Freed-Hardeman University Associates, Huntsville Chapter. The FHU Associates are a group of ladies who are associated with FHU in some way and work to raise funds for student scholarships. I was a student at Freed-Hardeman College (now University) and our daughter, Bonny, graduated from Freed-Hardeman University. Our son, Seth, also attended FHU for one year. Bonny had a full tuition scholarship and both Seth and I had scholarship money as well, so we are indebted to those who went before us to establish scholarship funds. To help pay it forward, Bonny and I are now both active FHU Associates. 

The third annual FHU Associates Fall Market is this coming Saturday, November 14, from 9 to 3. The West Huntsville Church of Christ at Providence is gracious enough to allow us to use the fellowship hall of their building for this event. We've been working hard to get all our vendors lined up and we think we have an excellent group this year. We decided that we would make sure to have at least half of our vendor booths as craft type vendors, and the rest will be representatives of Direct Sales companies. If you would like to be invited to the event on Facebook, just let me know and I'll get that done right away so you can see our complete vendor list and some of the items they are planning to have at their booths. We are hoping for a great turnout, and would love to see you there if you are in the North Alabama or Southern Tennessee area!

One of our vendors, who is also an FHU alumnus, will be doing two painting classes for us and we are taking reservations for those. We expect to also have room for wall-ins the day of the event. The classes are at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. No experience is required, art supplies will be provided, and your ticket price is a $25 donation to our college scholarship fund. Ticket purchases include a free drink for our Fall Market concession stand. For reservations you can call 256-763-0393 or send an email to Here are the pictures we will be working on:

For the 9:30 class you can paint this beautiful ornament and personalize it with whatever you choose.

For the 12:30 class we have chosen this interesting painting with many options for shapes and colors.

Please come shop and/or paint with us and help us make this event a complete success for the benefit of the students of good ole FHU!
