Start thinking about what you can do for your Fall Festival. Here are some ideas of what can be done now:

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 collecting (searching) for donations of "mystery" gifts for people of all ages. Useable items only please. Mark the bag "Mystery Gift" and bring them to the Rectory.

BOTTLEMANIA - Any item in a bottle. It has been suggested that "Bottlemania" also contain something that would be of interest to children. Anything that fits in a bottle will be acceptable - even a variety of related items in a large plastic container. 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 by calling the Rectory weekdays.

ARTS AND CRAFTS - Design a theme basket. Pick a theme - Pancakes, Frogs, Boats, etc. - and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.

Call the Rectory weekdays 612-789-7238.
