A local Craft Faire Marketplace was held Sunday October 4, 2015, at the Ely Stage Stop & Country Museum, in conjunction with the monthly California Old Time Fiddlers’ Jam Session. Nineteen local craft folks sold their wares to several hundred attendees. Donations made during the Fiddlers’ Jams typically benefit both the Ely Stage Stop and the Old Time Fiddlers Association, District 10. This month all donations made during the jam will benefit Valley Fire victims through the Lake County Wildfire Relief Fund created by North Coast Opportunities (NCO) and Mendo Lake Credit Union (MLCU).
The local craft vendor fees and all donations, including those raised during raffle and silent auction offerings, are being donated to the Wildfire Relief Fund. The District 10 Fiddler’s Association also made a special donation of $500 as several musicians lost their homes during the Valley Fire. The total amount to be donated as a result of the Fiddlers’ Jam and the Marketplace is $2,895.
