"Power of the Purse" Marketplace returned this spring on April 21st during the Dogwood Weekend festivities in Perry County. United Way of Perry County, Oakwood Health Campus, Perry County Junior Women, Fifth Third Bank and Maurice's sponsored this Marketplace event that raised funds for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Local craftspeople and businesses offered handbags, jewelry, crafts, makeup, baskets, antiques, massages, and much more for sale to benefit the local literacy program. Maurice's hosted a spring fashion show featuring local models, the latest spring styles and sunglasses from Burris LeClere Eye Center. Many thanks to all who braved the cold and joined us on Saturday, April 21 from 10 am to 4:00 pm for a delicious, free lunch courtesy of Oakwood and took the opportunity to purchase a great variety of local products.
