This is a parish event and something supported and enjoyed by most everyone in our parish. It is also not only a major fund raiser for St. John’s but one of our faces to the community at large so let us put the effort in to make this a special event.
This year we will need more support than ever from our parish members. Our Bazaar conflicts with the date set for the presentations of The Diocese of New Westminster Awards. John Binns is our candidate this year and many of our regular helpers will be going to the ceremony to support John. This may leave us a little short staffed on Saturday so if you can offer even a few hours to help out we would really appreciate it. Please let Ann Adair Austin know if you are able to help so we may include you in our rooster.
You may also help by:
Raffle: Donating items for out Goodie Baskets. These need to be nonperishable items that are special treats for Christmas. Books of Raffle Tickets will be available after church and perhaps your friends might like the chance to win one of our great prizes.
Bake Table: This is always a popular area and one of the first visited by many of our guests. We have many wonderful bakers in our community so let’s show off a little!
Handicrafts: Once again we have many talented individuals and it is always interesting to see the many special creations. Our knitters, sewers and crafters are second to none.
Country Store: Our special little corner for homemade jams, jellies, relishes & all kinds of special little treats. Do you have a favorite treat that can be bottled or packaged?
Nu 2 U: This where we feature new or nearly new items. We also have a great jewelry display. Do you have any unused gifts that you want to recycle or quality jewelry that may be someone else’s treasure?
White Elephant: We generally have a lot of good quality used items to recycle be it books, kitchen treasures or many household items. White Elephant is a popular destination for many of our guests. (No T.V. or computer items, please)
Soup & Sandwich Lunch: We believe this is one of the best values to be had at any bazaar. For only $6.00 you get soup, complete sandwich (4 fillings), desert and tea or coffee. Come and bring your friends.
We have a little space in the PMC for White Elephant items so whatever can be brought up to a week ahead would be great.
Items for Crafts and Nu 2 U may be brought in on the Sunday before (Oct. 30th), to Coffee & Crafts on Wednesday morning (Nov. 2th), Thursday afternoon or all day Friday. The earlier the better.
Items for the Bake Table may be brought in on Friday or where that is not possible on Saturday morning.
Looking forward to seeing you all on SATURDAY, NOV. 5TH BETWEEN 10:00 & 3:00.
