What better time than now to think about what you can do for the Fall Festival. Things that can be done now are:
Buy and/or sell your Raffle tickets - we have more at the Rectory.
Bring items for the Flea Market to the garage behind the Rectory Monday thru Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Make things for the Fancy Booth - theme baskets, crochet, knit, carve, paint, holiday ornaments, etc.
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. Mark the bag "Parcel Post" and bring them to the Rectory.
Think of where you would like to volunteer your time to work and volunteer. We always need lots of volunteers in all areas.
