Craft fair a success

The Mapleton Daze annual Fall Craft and Vendor Fair on Oct. 12 was rated a success with a large number of buyers attending the event.  

Lynelle Foster, Mapleton Daze president, thanked everyone who attended and made a purchase.  Crafters and vendors were happy with the large crowds that came out to see and purchase their wares.  This 2020 Mapleton Daze fundraiser had everything from homemade potato chips to jewelry to home decorations to live rabbits and chickens.
