Bazaar Donations Requested

The Fall Harvest Bazaar Committee is seeking donated items to be sold on the Silent Auction at our Fall Bazaar on November 11.  Handmade items such as paintings, cross-stitch pictures, knitted items and wood crafted pieces are very welcome.  Antiques are also very popular.  We have also sold firewood that was cut, delivered and stacked.  Service items such as babysitting, yard-work, or food items (dinner or dessert-of-the-month) are also well received.  If you are willing to donate something for the Silent Auction, please contact Shari Salmonson (679-4853) or Carol Allman (679-3380).  In order for these items to be displayed and bid on, please have your items or a picture of them at the church by October 5th. We will be ready to begin bidding on the items on Oct. 8th.  Thank you very much.

The Fall Bazaar committee is in need of CONTAINERS to use for the WINTER GREEN ARRANGEMENTS which are sold on bazaar day. Arrangements made in “old country” style containers (wood or metal) and big baskets seem to sell well. If anyone has a container from a previous year you can bring it back to be refilled. Containers should be brought in to the church office before November 1st.
