With all the activities going on around town Saturday, the Emporia Senior Center added to the action with its annual Fall Flea Market.

Eight vendors set up, selling everything from refurbished furniture and homemade bows to locally-sourced honey and fresh salsa.

The Senior Center itself got involved by offering cinnamon rolls and chili to keep everyone full and happy.

There were several board members present, including Board President Anna Scharenberg, Ray Terrell and its newest member Joyce Beardsley.

Beardsley expressed her excitement about the fundraiser because of the help it provided to upgrade their mechanicals, specifically the HVAC and walk-in cooler.

It was a pleasant and productive day for both the center and community members who participated.

Notably, the ESC mission stays the same: To improve volunteerism while continuing to serve the seniors of Lyon County.
