Oswego’s Curt Klemenz, an avid woodworker, has made and donated a Victorian dollhouse to the Oswego Hospital Auxiliary Bazaar.
The fall bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. October 8 and 9 in the hospital lobby.
The bazaar offers many booths selling various items including baked goods, jewelry, RADA Cutlery, homemade crafts, as well as many themed basket donated by hospital departments.
A full turkey dinner will be served both days in the hospital cafeteria from 5 to 7 p.m. Take-outs will also be available.
All proceeds from the bazaar benefit the Oswego Hospital Auxiliary.
Klemenz said he donated the dollhouse to the auxiliary as a way to thank Oswego Hospital for the excellent care that’s been provided to his family.
He worked on the attractive dollhouse and its furniture on and off for about two years.
Adding her own touch was his wife, Ceil Bell-Klemenz, who made the curtains.
“The auxiliary greatly appreciates Mr. Klemenz’s hard work and creativity,” said Sarah Weigelt, Oswego Health’s director of volunteers and auxilians. “I am sure any girl or collector would love to have the dollhouse.”
Members of the community can purchase tickets to win the dollhouse at the Oswego Hospital snack bar.
The winner will be selected during the auxiliary’s fall bazaar on October 9 at 7 p.m.
