Saturday’s Imperial Beach Women’s Club’s Annual Holiday Bazaar Was a Big Success

With a Large Turnout of Holiday Shoppers and Lots of Vendors on Hand Selling a Variety of Hand Crafted Items and Gifts for the Holidays, the IB Women's Club Annuals Holiday Bazaar at the IB Boys & Girls Club Gym Was Another Big Success on Saturday

There was a great turnout by both vendors and holiday shoppers on Saturday at the IB Boys and Girls Gym as the IB Women’s Club once again had a very successful annual Holiday Bazaar. The Snack Bar was busy all day selling refreshments and with a package deal of a hot dog, a bag of chips and drink for just $3 the snack bar was busy all day selling refreshments as holiday shoppers kept them and the vendors selling their hand-crafted items busy from opening to close on Saturday.

The first thing you came across a you entered the gym was a large table of home made tasty treats for sale with a large variety of sweets to make your moth water. With choices of lots of different types of cookies. Brownies and muffins, it was hard to resist stopping and picking up one of those treats. Besides the wonderful food, the IBWC also held a raffle and had a silent auction on a beautiful homemade quilt.

The turnout seemed to be exceptional as i spent a couple hours there and everyone seemed to be very busy the whole time. The Imperial Beach Women's Club is the oldest service club in Imperial Beach. It was founded in 1933 as the Palm Beach Women’s Club and later change their name to the Imperial Beach Women’s Club sometime in during the 1970’s if I remember correctly.

The Imperial Beach Woman's Club helps lots of organizations in our community. At last month luncheon they honored and passed out donations to the Imperial Beach Junior Lifeguard Program, the Imperial Beach Library, the IB Boys and Girls Club, Serving Seniors from St Charles, VIP Preschool, and a couple of local Girl Scout Troops were just some of the recipients of their generosity.

 They have two groups. One meets the second Tuesday of the month at noon at Imperil Beach Library Community Room and a second group that meets I the evenings know as the Night Owls.

In February of 2015 they received an award from the Mayor for their excellent community work and were honored at a IB City Council Meeting in October.

This is a great group of women doing wonderful things to help the community and they also have a great time while doing it. They can be found at almost every large event in the City of Imperial Beach helping someway. In November at Imperial Beach’s Military Appreciation Day they got around 1,000 Christmas Cards signed so they could be sent to our wonderful troops who are away from their family’s during the holidays.
