So many have stepped forward and joined the list of
dedicated volunteers! But, there is always a spot for more! Please contact one of the table leaders or Karen Ober!
Donations for Silent Auction and Penny Sale are coming in slowly. Please pray about how you can help.
Each week we are listing new baskets we are looking for donations to include. Beginning September 16, 17 we will have the trees filled with needed items, in the narthex and the parish hall.
If you can take a tag or two it would be so helpful to fill the baskets.
All donations may be left in the parish hall on the marked tables or in the boxes.

We are always looking forward to the creative craft items of our AMAZING parish artisans! Keep working on them and sharing with
