Spirit of Christmas Bazaar 

The annual bazaar is quickly approaching. It will be held November 9th this year. We hope that everyone is working on projects for the bazaar. We need everyone’s help to be able to continue the many missions we’ve been funding for many years. 

The Meal With A Mission in August raised over $1,000. This money will be used for publicity and for supplies for confections. 

CHILDREN’S ROOM: 

Do you know a child who loves to shop? Or a child who loves to surprise someone…with something special that he/she knows is on their “wish” list? 

That shopping stop IS the Children’s Room…a place where a child can choose anything for… ONLY A DOLLAR. The gift is wrapped and personalized with a card. Joyfulness abounds…for the giver as well as the recipient. 

We do need your help in making this a success for children. Donations that you think YOU would like to receive are needed. While thinking about what you can donate, consider items for men and women, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grand-fathers, or precious friends. Last year, a new fishing tackle box was the big hit. Packages of golf balls…new and gently used…were another hot item. 

We look forward to receiving your donations, and a fun-filled day helping little ones shop and wrap a gift just for you, or for someone else special in his/her life. 

Don’t delay! Let’s fill the totes with your donations located in the hallway under the coat racks.

RAFFLE: 

Crafters and artisans, we want to remind you that larger hand-crafted items often sell better through the Spirit of Christ-mas raffle that runs during the weeks leading up to the bazaar. If you would like to donate an item to the raffle, please notify Nancy Evans (546-2817) or Terri Wisniak (546-2863) no later than Thursday, September 26, to be included on the raffle ticket printing. Your finished project should then be delivered to the church by Sunday, October 13, 8:30am for display during the raffle ticket sales period, Sunday Oct 13- the day of the bazaar. 

You do not need to price your item as the number of ticket sales will determine the money that is raised from your donation. Thank you! 

BAKE SALE: 

Start thinking now about what you can make for the bake sale. This is always a popular part of the bazaar. 

ITEMS NEEDED: 

Birch logs approximately 1inch diameter and 8 to 12 inches long for table decorations and 3 to 4 inches diameter and 18 to 24 inches long for fireplace hearth decoration. We also need barn wood in good shape for project making. If anyone has any vin-tage maple syrup pails, galvanized buckets or vintage gas and oil cans, these make some great projects. Please contact Karen DeBoer at ka_rende@hotmail.com or Nancy Nyvold at dtnyvold@aol.com if you can provide any of these items
