                                     HOLY CROSS
                                FALL FESTIVAL!

                                   September 18 & 19

Our Fall Festival is less than a month away. Here are ideas of what you can do now:

FALL FESTIVAL RAFFLE TICKETS - Buy and/or sell them. We have extras at the Rectory.

FLEA MARKET - Bring clean useable 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 or a jar - peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti sauce, ice cream topping, etc. 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 - Candy Treats, Scrapbook Crafts, Vikings, etc. - and fill a basket relating to your theme.

Call the Rectory weekdays 612-789-7238.

                             WE NEED VOLUNTEERS
                                  to chair the following areas
                                      of the Fall Festival:

                       Flea Market
                                         Night Watch - 9:00 PM to 2:00 AM

You can do this and the Festival Committee can help advise you. Kind volunteers have already spent several weeks pricing Flea Market items. Perhaps several friends, a couple or a family would like to chair an area. We need your help! For information or to volunteer,  call Janice at the Rectory - 612-789-7238.
