“Local authors Rod Thompson and Morgan C. Wilson will offer inspirational children’s books for sale and signing,” Hengler wrote in the email.

The C.E.&H. Heritage Civic League will have a fundraising bake sale, and will also offer free coffee, mulled cider and O’doodleDoo’s Donuts to shoppers.

The Suffolk River Heritage Foundation will fundraise with giftware of Chuckatuck Creek — embroidered hats, boat bags, glassware and mugs, and a collection of signature artwork.

Copies of Suffolk River Heritage books will also be on sale, according to chairperson Karla Smith, including “Truckin’ on the Western Branch” and “Peninsula in Passage” for half price, plus 25 percent off “Screwpiles: The Forgotten Lighthouses.”
