Start thinking about what you can do for your Festival. Here are some ideas:

Fall Festival Raffle Tickets are at the University entrance to the Church. Buy and/or sell them. We have extras at the Rectory.
Flea Market - Bring items 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.
Fancy Booth - crochet, knit, carve, paint, holiday ornaments, dish towels, etc.
Mystery Gifts - Start 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.
Bottlemania - Any item in a bottle will be greatly appreciated - shampoo, hair conditioner, dish soap, pop, ketchup, bubble bath, hand lotion, deodorant, etc. Bring them during the week to the Rectory.
Volunteers - Think of where you would like to volunteer your time to work. We always need lots of volunteers.
Arts and Crafts - Design a theme basket. Pick a theme - Dogs, Daisies, Diet, Dishes, etc. - and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.
