The Jane Lew Volunteer held their Annual Jane Lew Spring Craft Show over the weekend with crafty types coming from all over the region to peddle their wares in an effort to raise money for the fire department.
The event, which was held at the JLVFD building, featured dozens of crafters from all around the region, selling a diverse array of products including primitives, ceramic bowls, and pens crafted from native woods of various West Virginia counties.
Many JLVFD firemen spent much of the weekend in the kitchen preparing and serving food including hotdogs, biscuits and gravy, pork barbecue, soup beans and cornbread, cole slaw, and potato salad, while others collected donations from passing motorists as they drove by the JLVFD building.
“It was great seeing everyone come out this weekend for the Spring Arts and Crafts Show. We appreciate all the support and look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall,” said JLVFD Chief Mitch Oldaker.
The department’s social media account echoed the comments of the chief thanking patrons, crafters, and vendors who braved the cold weather to attend.
The JLVFD added that they hoped to see everyone at their Labor Day Fireman’s Festival coming up later this year.
