Preparations are officially underway for the 27th Annual Sheppard Officers' Spouses' Club's Hangar Holiday 2012. It's a two-day community event that includes about 250 vendors from across the Southern United States. Hangar Holiday will be SAturday and Sunday at the MPEC.
The 2012 Hangar Holiday vendors will include jewelry, arts, crafts, quilts, wreaths, pottery, dolls, baskets, military collectibles, and much more. This year, Hangar Holiday will occupy the entire MPEC.
Hangar Holiday visitors are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item, which will be collected by Cub Scouts Pack 232 from Sheppard Air Force Base, in support of the Airman and Family Readiness Center (AFRC) Food Pantry and the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.
The event is open to the public free of charge on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. Donations are always welcome.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Sheppard Officers' Spouses' Club (SOSC) scholarship program for promising military dependents pursuing a college education as well as to local and national charities.
