Here are some ideas of what can be done now:

Make items for the Fancy Booth - crochet, knit, carve, paint, holiday ornaments.
Start collecting (searching) for donations of “mystery gifts” for people of all ages for the Parcel Post Booth.  Useable items for this booth are needed.
Design a theme basket for the Arts and Crafts Booth.  Pick a theme - Baking, Golf, Scrap booking, etc. - and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.
Think of where you want to volunteer to work.  We need and would like lots of volunteers.

Questions?  Call the Rectory weekdays 612-789-7238.
