Daily Flyer: Tuesday, Nov. 29

In case you missed it…

Fayetteville police are investigating a Monday night shooting that left one person dead and one injured during a possible attempted robbery at 232 N. Olive Ave.

We found 12 local holiday markets, art sales, and bazaars (including one “bizarre”) happening in Fayetteville this week. Here’s what we know about each of them.

Organizers of Last Night, a new New Year’s Eve celebration set to debut in downtown Fayetteville in 2011, are hosting an online auction to raise funds to pay the artists who will perform during the event.

The Fayetteville High School Student Council will hold the 14th Annual Homeless Vigil on Thursday, Dec. 1 on the front lawn of the school, located at 1001 W. Stone St.

Happy Birthday!
