Hospital Bazaar Makes a Tremendous Return After Pandemic Slow Down

It was like the days of yore—well, at least some three years ago—as the Weisbrod Hospital Auxiliary Bazaar was a resounding success last Saturday—once again.

Nearly 30 vendors graced every inch of the Kiowa County Community Building located at the Fairgrounds in Eads as happy holiday shoppers showed up in big numbers to purchase the baked goods, gift items, and homemade arts and crafts displayed by some of the most talented entrepreneurs in the area.

In addition, many local organizations sponsored a vendor table selling their items or helping people fill out tickets for the many drawings that took place throughout the day.

Breakfast and lunch were served by the 4-H Cloverbuds Club headed up by sponsors Tim and Gloria Trosper who prepared the ever-popular three-soups and sandwich selection for lunch.

According to Hospital Auxiliary president Linda Trosper, who has been organizing this annual event for most of the 35 years it has been in existence, “The bazaar is our annual fundraiser that allows the Auxiliary to fund gifts or goods for residents at the Weisbrod Extended Care Unit throughout the year.”

Vice-President Diana Flory was thrilled with the number of businesses who donated prizes for the ever-popular drawings during the event.

The last few years have been sad as in 2020 the bazaar was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic and in 2021 the turnout was lukewarm with people still hesitant about coming out in public. But this year, finally, things are back in order, people are no longer afraid, and they were ready to open their pocketbooks in preparation for the holidays and in good will for their fellow man.
