Geneva gearing up for first-ever "Market" event Sept. 20-21

     The population of Geneva will swell next weekend when vendors and visitors converge on the small community for its first annual citywide sale and celebration.

     The event, dubbed "The Market" by its creators, is the first of its kind for the town of less than 170 people. More than 60 vendors of antiques, refurbished items and handmade goods will be on hand Friday and Saturday, Sept. 20-21. The Geneva Community Betterment (GCB) group spearheaded efforts and organized the event to raise funds for various projects throughout the town.

     "Sixty almost seems minute from who I've talked to, but when I started I thought it would be good if we got 20 vendors to come," said Tonya Sanders, who thought up the idea for The Market. "I've been working pretty hard on it since April."
