5th Annual Feast of St. Paul's Smorgasbord Dinner In case you hadn't heard. . . although we were a small intimate group enjoying a variety of menu items, our supporters (those in attendance as well as those unable to join us) were most giving. We raised $635 to help defray our obligations to the soup kitchen throughout the year. On a personal note, I wish to "thank" your Outreach members who donated all of the food items, making this a no expense event; all profit! Many, many thanks to all who lent their support to this event.
They will soon be on their way!
The pumpkin patch will turn from being a sea of orange to one of green. On Sunday, November 24th, approx. 500 Christmas Trees will be delivered, and we will need assistance unloading them from the truck. Traditionally this unloading takes place between morning services (10-11), but we need to remain flexible as we won't know exactly "what time" until we get a little closer to our delivery date. I will keep you posted. There will be a sign-up sheet posted in the Narthex beginning November 3rd; unloading is made easy when there are many hands helping. Not to mention that it is FUN! Please join us!
This event is your Outreach Committee's largest fundraiser of the year. Also available on Nov. 3rd. will be our "Sales Sign-up" opportunities. Sales begin the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 29th. We need at least 2-3 adults for each shift and encourage family participation.
Sales shifts will be in 2-hour increments. There is something for everyone; handing out candy canes, helping to measure that perfect tree, giving a tree trunk a fresh cut (lessons will be offered ladies), wishing our guests a very Merry Christmas. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Betsy Peterson or any Outreach member.
So, please . . . check your phones and see where you can lend a helping hand!
