                                    HOLY CROSS
                                 FALL FESTIVAL!
                                    September 18 & 19

Think about what you can do for our Fall Festival. Here are some ideas:

FALL FESTIVAL RAFFLE TICKETS - 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. Bring 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 work. Bring 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. See the notice at the bottom of this page.

ARTS AND CRAFTS - Design a theme basket. Pick a theme - Baking a Cake, Teddy Bears, Crayons@, etc. - and fill a basket relating to your theme.

Questions? Call the Rectory weekdays 612-789-7238.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to chair the following areas of the Fall Festival:
                     Dollar Mania
                     Flea Market
                    Night Watch

You will have experienced people to help and advise you. Perhaps several friends, a couple or a family would like to chair an area. Please help. For information or to volunteer, call Janice at the Rectory - 612-789-7238.
