Bazaar

ANNUAL PARISH BAZAAR

October 20, 2018--9am-2pm

We need your help to make the Bazaar a success!  See all the ways you can be a part of this fun event!  Sign up sheets for volunteering will be available at the Minisrty Fair Sept 8/9!

RAFFLE TICKETS-
Raffle Tickets will begin to be distributed after all Masses Sept. 15/16 and Sept. 22/23. We ask each family to sell or purchase two books of tickets (a total of 20 tickets/$20.00). The tickets are a good chunk of bazaar income.  Extra books of tickets can be picked up from Donna in the office!
Prizes this year: 1st Prize-$500.00, 2nd Prize-$300.00, 3rd/4th Prize-$100.00 each.  There are also additional smaller prizes not printed on the tickets.

BAKED GOODS-
PLEASE plan on baking and donating homemade cakes, cookies, candies, pies, fudge, breads, and more!  Some suggestions: please bag or plate and cover smaller items (cookies, candies, cupcakes). Please label each item you are donating-volunteers will not necessarily know what you have brought-especially if the item is low sugar, sugar free, gluten free, or has nuts in it-please make certain that items with possible allergy triggers are clearly marked.  Please note that we cannot accept any items that require refrigeration-we have no room. 

CAKE WALK-
Back this year is the cake walk!  Music, cakes and a little exercise equals fun!  To make the cake walk a success-we need homemade cakes for prizes.  Consider baking and donating a cake (or 2) for this fun event!

CRAFTS- 
Craft sessions continue each Tuesday in the parish hall from 9am-Noon.  Please join us for craftiness, fun and fellowship!  All skill levels are welcome!  Can't attend sessions but are crafty?  Consider donating your completed crafts! 

 BASKET RAFFLE-
We are looking donations for our basket raffle (this will replace the Silent Auction baskets from years past)!  We are currently accepting new merchandise, as well as gift certificates for goods and services! Be creative and create a themed basket to donate! Baskets need to be valued at $50.00 or less.  

PLANT SALE-
Do you have extra plants you would like to share with others? Need to divide up bulbs or perennials? Consider potting them up for the plant sale table.  Plants will be accepted beginning October 15th.  

YARD SALE- 
We are currently accepting your gently used cast-offs for the yard sale section of the bazaar! Items can be dropped off during regular office hours. We DO NOT accept large appliances, computers, printers, fax machines,printers, TV's (except flat screens), car seats, clothing, shoes or purses.  PLEASE do not drop off item on weekends of leave items in the church or parish hall, or outside! 

VOLUNTEERS!!-

Many volunteers are needed to make the bazaar a success! Individuals are needed to help set up, clean up, and most of all, help out at the various booths the day of the bazaar. This is a great way to have fun, meet parishioners, make new friends and build up our parish community! Sign up sheets are in the gathering space in the church. Don't hesitate to contact Donna if you can help or if you have questions! 

BINGO- 
Come play bingo for prizes and cash!  A fun time for all! 

RELIGIOUS ARTICLES- 
Stop by the Religious Articles table-we will have a variety of merchandise for sale.

FOOD LINE-ADULTS ONLY- 
Volunteers are needed a day or two prior to the bazaar to assist with set up/decorating and some food prep. Lots of help needed the day of the bazaar. Volunteers work in shifts. Sign up sheets are in the gathering space in the church.

CHILDREN's GAMES- 
Volunteers are needed to help organize and freshen up the Children's games!  Bring you ideas! Call Donna in the office and she will connect you with the team organizing the games!

CLEAN UP CREW-
This is one of the most overlooked but most needed part of the bazaar!  We need a crew willing to assist immediately following the bazaar to help with clean up! Leftovers from the yard sale will need to be brought into the storage building, help is needed putting away Children's Games, clean up of chairs and tables after Bingo, Food Line clean up, etc.  In years past, many folks who have volunteered all day were then left to clean up-PLEASE help out-remember, many hands make light work!

 

We also need help with 'Last Chance' bazaar sales! After all masses October 20th and 21st, we need volunteers (3-4 each Mass) to sell leftovers in the parish hall.  More bazaar cleanup will take place Monday, October 22nd.
