FFNOW moves Quartermania to Carthage K of C Hall

Unable to reach an amicable agreement with the new management at our local Quality Inn, First Family Network of Women has been forced to relocate Quartermania, their monthly fundraising event for Norwood Service League, to the Knights of Columbus Hall in Carthage. Quartermania has been staged at the Quality Inn since FFNOW started it last year, but with a reported near tripling of the Quality Inn’s prices for group events, at least one other local non-profit, in addition to FFNOW, has had to stop meeting there. Hoping the move from Norwood is temporary, the group is in the process of trying to secure another local venue. We’re hoping some of our readers can help out with suggestions on locations Quartermania can be held in Norwood. Just leave your ideas in the comments box, and we’ll make sure FFNOW gets them.

April’s Quartermania will be held tomorrow evening at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Carthage at 7500 Fairpark Avenue. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., and bidding starts at 7:00 p.m. Food and drinks will be available for a very reasonable price. Click here for more details, including directions. There will be more than 70 items auctioned off for 50 cents or less. FFNOW has added some companies that will be providing products for auction. Here’s a nearly complete list:

Booty Parlor
Deirdre Styles
Jordan Essentials
Thirty-One Gifts
The Gourmet Cupboard
Pampered Chef
Tastefully Simple
Entertaining at Home
Discovery Toys
Just Jewelry
PartyLite Candles
Dove Chocolate

And don’t forget - all proceeds from Quartermania are donated to Norwood Service League.
