GLENVIL, Neb. (KSNB) - Silver lake high school FFA members welcomed out the community to their first-ever ‘Small Town Craft Show.’ A variety of vendors from around the area came together at the ‘Brader Country Barn’ offering up items like clothing, art, handcrafted jewelry, ceramics, antiques and more.

Silver Lake FFA President Samantha Bonifas said there was a reason their chapter decided to organize a craft show.

“Our FFA officers really wanted to broaden what we do as an FFA chapter and we decided that a craft show was a really good idea,” Bonifas said. “We were actually a little bit nervous that maybe the turn out wouldn’t be good but, we had to use overflow parking ... so that was a pretty good sign that we have a lot of people here.”

In addition to there being plenty of vendors at the event, there were also a couple of food trucks serving up goods and beverages.

Bonifas said holding the craft show would help support the organization in a number of ways.

“We will use the funds that we get from this craft show for all of our competitions, our traveling expenses whenever we go to conventions and basically just to support the kids in our chapter so that they get to have the best FFA experience possible,” she said.

Bonifas noted, after seeing the success of their first craft show they were looking to bring it back next year.
