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.

PARCEL POST - Stan 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.

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.

VOLUNTEER - We always need lots of volunteers. Think of where you would like to volunteer your time to work.

ARTS AND CRAFTS - Design a theme basket. Pick a theme - Wildlife, Cookie Baking, leisure Time, etc. - and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.
