Larry Dablemont's annual Grizzled Old Outdoorsman Swap Meet is set for 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at Brighton Assembly of God Church gymnasium, 6 miles south of Bolivar.

The church will provide coffee and biscuits and gravy for breakfast. A variety of sandwiches and desserts will be served at midday.

There is no charge to vendors to set up booths and no entry fee for attendees.

There will be around 50 tables of outdoor gear for sale. Vendors will be coming from as far as Norfork Lake, Arkansas.

Proceeds from a separate room off the gymnasium will benefit the Panther Creek Youth project Dablemont created for underprivileged kids. Panther Creek is a no-cost outdoor setting with lodging on a 60-acre tract along Panther Creek. More information will be available that day.

A map will be posted at
