WE STILL NEED A LOT OF VOLUNTEERS! See below for where help is needed!

THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS!

 

RAFFLE TICKETS-
Please return your raffle tickets promptly! Each registered family was 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 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.
Volunteers needed the day of the bazaar to receive tickets/payment as well as sell additional raffle tickets. We are still in need of 2 people from Noon -1:30pm.

VOLUNTEERS!!- 

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 fellow parishioners, make new friends and build up our parish community! Sign up sheets are in the gathering space in the church. Beginning Monday, October 14th, 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! 

BAKED GOODS-
PLEASE plan on baking and donating homemade cakes, cookies, candies, pies, fudge, breads, brownies, muffins 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.

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 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. Again, about 7 people are needed to help tidy everything up. We will begin at 9:00am Monday, October 21st.
