We continue to accept your gently used donations to benefit the yard sale portion of the Festival. If you wish to help with sorting and pricing, please contact Maggie. 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. PLEASE consider signing up to help-even if you can only volunteer a few hours!


FALL FESTIVAL YARD SALE DONATIONS-We are currently accepting donations of your gently used ‘treasures’ to sell at the yard sale portion of our Fall Festival.

Baked Goods-9:00am-2:00pm-or until we sell out

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.  Also, 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 15th from 9:00am to 7:00pm or the morning of the Festival.



Cake Walk-
POC- Jill Austin: [email protected]

Music, cakes/goodies 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-9:00am-2:00pm-or until sold out
POC- Melissa Cain: [email protected]
COME JOIN THE FUN! Craft Sessions continue each Tuesday at 7:00pm in the parish hall!

Several volunteers are needed the day of the Fall Festival to help sell crafts.




Plant Sale-available all day-or until sold out
POC- Erin Canali: 910-429-5578 / [email protected]

Bingo- 10:00am-1:00pm 
POC- Margie Rogers
Come play bingo for prizes and cash!  A fun time for all! Volunteers needed throughout the event to call numbers, pass out bingo cards and collect money. 



Food Line-Adults Only
POC- Joe Gelin: [email protected]
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 Festival. Volunteers serve food, help keep food line stocked, help prepare foods and collect money.

 




SET UP/CLEAN UP CREW

POC- Kate Kane: 910-488-1797 / [email protected]
This is one of the most overlooked but an essential part of the Fall Festival!  We need folks to help set up during the week of October 11th as well as the morning of the event. Just as important is a group of volunteers willing to assist immediately following the event to help with clean up! Leftovers from the yard sale will need to be brought into the storage building, clean up of chairs and tables after Bingo, Food Line clean up, etc.  In years past, many folks who volunteered all day were then left to clean up-PLEASE help out-remember, many hands make light work! Please consider helping out here!
