The Salvation Army is taking reservations from vendors for tables at its Fall Festival to be held Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lt. Julie Igleheart said anyone can rent a table for $25.

"If you sell crafts or other items, you can rent a table and sell them that day," she said.

Table rental proceeds go to the Salvation Army. The vendors keep the money they make from the sale of their items.

The Salvation Army's men's club will be selling hot dogs, chips and drinks at the festival. Members of the women's auxiliary will make themed baskets to sell at a silent auction. Proceeds from the food sales and basket auction will go to the Salvation Army.

There will also be various activities for children, including facepainting, games and maybe even balloon characters.

Adults can shop that day, the children can play and everyone can get a bite to eat.

"It's a fundraiser for the Salvation Army and an opportunity to connect with the community and show people what we do," said Lt. Kenny Igleheart, commander.
