Thinking ahead to October

Its spring cleaning time and we will be having tables for rent for our Annual Bazaar this fall. We will be renting tables at $25.00 each. 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. If you have more than a few you can rent a table for $25.00 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 so we can reserve a table for you.

We will be having our lunch items – hot dogs, chili, soup, soda, water, etc. and we will be selling jars of homemade soup and homemade baked goods. The date of the bazaar is Saturday, October 22nd and time is 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We need your help with making soup and baked goods to sell plus set-up and breakdown and clean up as well as kitchen help and soup and baked goods selling. As we get closer we will have a sign-up sheet.
