Planning Ahead  Grace Lutheran Church Annual Bazaar

Saturday, October 13, 2018 – Annual Bazaar – We will be having tables for rent at our Annual Bazaar this fall on Saturday, October 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you have a few attic, basement, garage or closet treasures you would like to donate we will have 2 or 3 tables that will profit Grace. Please place your clean items on the stage. If you have more than a few you can rent a table for $35 or bring your own table and just rent space at $25 so you can sell your treasures and make some extra cash for yourself or share a table with a friend. We encourage you to ask friends and other family members to see if they are interested in renting a table.  We will also be renting tables to the public so if you are interested in renting a table please contact the church office at 610-356-1824 so we can reserve a table for you.

This year we will not be serving lunch items but we will be selling mums, homemade baked goods and homemade soups. We need your help with making soup to be jarred and baked goods.  We also need help to set-up, breakdown and clean. Also needed are people to sell mums, soup and baked goods.  There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex on the table.
