Saturday's annual Rafts of Crafts event was more than an opportunity to get some holiday shopping done. It was also an opportunity to help local students.
Hundreds of people attended the annual craft show featuring vendors from all across the state during the day-long event at Neligh-Oakdale.
The event is an annual tradition in Neligh in mid-November, and this is the third year the Neligh-Oakdale TeamMates Mentoring Program has spearheaded the craft fair.
Besides organizing the event, TeamMates also had a concession stand and served a soup luncheon as part of the fundraiser. Proceeds go toward scholarships, activities and events for their mentoring matches.
