Pampered Chef¨ (Avon, IL)

Several Flea Market Vendors from out of the county.

New Swords (Burlington, IA)

Also, the West Central Heat FFA organization will be serving food at the Gladstone Community building on Saturday and Sunday.

There is still room for crafters and displayers at the Gladstone park. A uniformed price has been set by Heritage Trails committee members of $10 a day throughout the county....

All displays will be set up at the Gladstone Village Park, Joyce said.

John Allaman is head of the Historical Society which sponsors Heritage Trail Days in Henderson County.

Displays are no longer being set up at the Covered Bridge due to the heavy traffic and parking problems along the highway.

You may pick up a brochure at our banks and businesses to find a listing of happenings around the county. The Heritage Trails brochure is being sponsored by businesses to be printed in The Quill on Wednesday, September 19th.
