SIGN UP SHEETS TO VOLUNTEER AT THE BAZAAR ARE IN THE GATHERING SPACE IN THE CHURCH!
Raffle Tickets are here! Please pick up your tickets in the gathering space following all Masses this weekend-this saves us postage! Each registered family is given two packs of tickets to sell or purchase (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 in the office! Tickets and payment can be brought into the office, mailed in, or placed in an envelope and placed in the gray box in the gathering space in the church.
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.
WE REALLY NEED YOU! It takes 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. Beginning Monday, October 15th, please call the office to sign up to help. Don't hesitate to call the office if you can help or if you have questions! The only experience you need is a smile and a friendly attitude!
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. Volunteers are needed throughout the day to help sell baked goods. Baked goods can be brought to the parish hall beginning Friday, October 18th from 8:00am to 7:00pm or the morning of the bazaar.
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!
Craft sessions continue! Join us 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! Several volunteers are needed the day of the bazaar to help sell crafts.
We are looking donations for our basket raffle! 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.
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 14th. A few volunteers are needed the day of the bazaar to help sell plants.
We are currently accepting items for the yard sale portion of the bazaar. Bring your clean, gently used items during regular business hours. We also need VOLUNTEERS to help sort and price all these treasures-call Donna in the office if you can help! Items we cannot take include: large appliances, computers, printers, TV's (except flat screens), car seats, cribs, clothing, purses, or shoes. Again, please do not drop off items on the weekends or leave items in the church, office or outside. We will need many volunteers the day of the bazaar to help collect money, help folks take larger purchases to their vehicles, and help at the end of the day getting unsold items back into the storage building.
Did we mention we need volunteers?! That would be you! Please sign up in the gathering space to help out! Or call the parish office.
Come play bingo for prizes and cash! A fun time for all! Volunteers needed throughout the day to call numbers, pass out bingo cards and collect money.
Stop by the Religious Articles table-we will have a variety of merchandise for sale. Volunteers needed to help sell goods.
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.
Volunteers needed to help set up games, assist children playing the games throughout the day, and help clean up at the end of the day.
CLEAN UP CREW-
This is one of the most overlooked but most necessary 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! Please consider helping out here!
We also need help with 'Last Chance' bazaar sales after all masses October 20th. We need volunteers (3-4 each Mass) to sell leftovers in the parish hall and in the storage building. More bazaar cleanup will take place Monday, October 21st.
