Week of 10/9/2016

  To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.”
Thomas Merton

IT’S CLOSER THAN YOU THINK! An additional craft night will be scheduled at DeAnna Imbro’s home sometime in October (date to be announced).

Once again, we will have our standard basket, quilt, and tree raffles, Boutique, Bake Sale Table, Christmas Treasures Room, Kids’ craft area on our stage, and our Snowflake Café will serve breakfast and lunch. As always, we cannot have a successful fair without your help! Donations ($1 or more) for our “Who says money doesn’t go on trees” can be put on the mini tree near the coffee hour table the next few weeks (goal this year is $50). Completed gift baskets (approx. $25-$30 value) can be brought in starting THIS WEEK (leave at the back of the hall and don’t forget to fill in a form as to what is in the basket). If you don’t want to do a whole basket, just leave your donation in the box in the hall to incorporate into a basket. There is a list of some suggested items needed to complete several baskets that have been started. We would like to have as many completed baskets as possible by the end of October so we can have for our Polish dinner on the 29th. Donations for the Christmas Treasures Room and the Boutique can be given to Lynda Boynton or Laura starting in mid October. Please also consider making a donation for our baked goods table or a dessert for our lunch. A sign-up sheet to work the day of the fair is posted on back table at coffee hour – you do not need to work all day, just indicate the hours you can help. We especially welcome any newcomers to jump in and get involved! See or call Laura Thompson (203 516-8607) if you have any questions.
