                          IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY
                                                TO THINK
                                           FALL FESTIVAL!
                                                                            September 18 & 19

Here are some ideas of what can be done now:

 Pick up your Fall Festival Raffle tickets at the university entrance to the Church. Buy and/or sell them. We have extras at the Rectory.
 . Bring items for the Flea Market to the garages behind the Rectory Monday thru Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. No TV's, large furniture or clothing.
 Make craft items for the Fancy Booth - 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 only please. Mark the bag "Parcel Post" and bring them to the Rectory.
 Think of where you would like to volunteer your time to work. We always need lots of volunteers.
 Design a theme basket for the Arts & Craft Booth. Pick a theme - Golf, Football, Barbeque, etc. - and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.
