The Duck Race is September 19th, only a week or so away! The Hilltop Guild will benefit from duck adoptions this year. Please consider adopting a duck or two, and please mark the Hilltop Guild as the organization for your duck adoption. We promise to put the proceeds to good use. Please go to: epduckrace.org/adopt-ducks/
Char Todd, Diane Turechek and Donna Squyres pick those elusive chokecherries to be juiced and made into jelly for next summer Guild sales.
Other fruit picking days are being organized in coming days to gather crabapples, plums, grapes etc. Let us know if you have fruit to donate.
On Saturday, September 12 at the 3rd Hilltop Guild mini-bazaar of the summer, haircuts will be offered for a flat $20 per head.
Vickie Nolting of “Hair on Wheels” aided by Shauna Sutton will be giving cuts from approximately 10 a.m. To 1 p.m. All money raised will go to the Guild’s scholarship fund serving students from Lyons to Estes Park.
Additionally, baked goods, jams and jellies, embroidered tea towels, quilts, books and rummage items will be for sale. The bazaar will open at 9 a.m., rain or shine!

The Hilltop Guild Mini Bazaar, held on the second Saturday of July, was a success! We had a steady flow of customers from beginning to end, but the bazaar was never crowded. Masks were worn by all and social distancing was achieved for both staff and customers. We thank our community for coming out and supporting our mini bazaar! We will move forward with our second Saturday of August Mini Bazaar, which will occur on August 8th from 9:00 am until 2:00pm. This bazaar will feature our baked goods, candies, jellies, our Boutique with weavings, quilts, knitting, crafts, cards and more. Our White Elephant, Boys Toys and Books will also be open for browsing. We have received new donations, so there are fresh finds. The Hilltop Guild received generous donations of fine arts pieces from Wild Basin and another private estate. Some of these artworks will be available for purchase by our customers at our August Mini Bazaar. There are beautiful watercolors, painted photographs, and signed and framed prints. Prices for the fine arts will range from $25-$150. Please drop by and view these wonderful works.
The White Elephant is currently not accepting donations. We are full to the brim with generous community donations. If we sell enough goods to make more room, we will begin to accept donations again. Please watch this website or our articles in the “Wind” for updates.
Due to Covid-19, the Guild’s weekly luncheons as well was our traditional August Bazaar and Fall Festival have been cancelled, until further notice. To replace the one-day bazaar, we are planning four mini-bazaars!
Hilltop Guild will have FOUR mini bazaars this summer on Saturdays: July 11, August 8, September 12 and October 10 from 9AM to 2PM (or when we sell out). We will also be offering items for sale here on our website. Watch for more details coming very soon!
