It's nearly here!
There's still time....
- Bake - bread, jams, jellies, cookies, cakes, pies.....
- Crafts - all you crafty people need to be working on seasonal and other type crafts.
- Post flyers! You can download the flyer or pick them up from the table at the back of the sanctuary.
If you have craft items or baked goods that you would like to drop off before Saturday, Jean Porter will be at the church from 3-5pm and 6-7pm on Friday.
Also needed is help with putting out signs on Friday and/or Sat. depending on the weather.
Lastly, if you are unable to do any of the above things, please tell all your friends about the Marketplace! The best way to publicize the Marketplace is by inviting people to come by. That personal touch! Especially promote the sale of pumpkins by the youth and the soup lunch. Homemade soups by Susie Mallard-Barnes and Peggy Davis and Sandra Cox will be featured.
