The Mackay High School FFA Chapter holds a "Christmas Bazaar" every year, right after the Thanksgiving break to bring the small and isolated community as well as people from the surrounding communities together. The bazaar features some food, some singing and Christmas spirit, but the real emphasis is on community support. This year 49 different small businesses were able to attend for $10 per table and sell their wares to the community. On average each vendor made over $1,000 at the bazaar.

At the same time that the businesses were gaining exposure, selling products and meeting community members, people from the remote area had a place to get together with friends and neighbors and do their Christmas shopping all in one location. It is no wonder that this event has been going up and growing in success for up to 25 years now. Tune in for this fun interview on how this all comes together.
