The days are getting shorter, school is starting, insects are stinging and Trustees are planning our annual fundraiser! Please save the date for SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6th, 2018, for our Chicken BBQ, themed basket and bake sale. Our event will run from 3:00 PM- 6:00 PM in the fellowship hall.
NOTE TO MEMBERS:
Since this is our only and major fundraiser, we are encouraging any type of participation you are willing to offer.
If you are creative, we would appreciate themed gift baskets to sell. We have sold out of baskets the last two years! We hope to accomplish this goal again this year. We typically have 30-50 baskets to sell with varied themes, sizes and price points. Think of something you like and make it into a basket for others to enjoy. Actually, creativity is not a requirement, just a bit of enthusiasm will do. If you really want to create a basket and cannot settle on a theme, just ask. We can offer suggestions.
Cooler weather often signals baking season. Please consider donating homemade goodies to our bake sale. We have a great reputation for our baked goods, so let’s keep this tradition strong.
If you enjoy eating, the chicken BBQ is for you. We will again offer dine in and carry-out options. Your mouth will water for chicken hot off the grill, potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw, roll and butter.
We are just a little over a month away from the event.
We will begin accepting baskets now. It is helpful to have all baskets delivered to the fellowship hall by Thursday, October 4thso we may set-up and arrange them. We have found that wrapping baskets in clear cellophane or shrink wrap, keeps the basket secure and easy to view. If you do not have access to wrapping supplies, there will be supplies available for you to use, in the fellowship hall, beginning mid-September. Please also tag your basket with an itemized list of products in the basket and the retail value. The list helps to identify small and or hidden items. The retail price helps us to establish our pricing for this event. A sample basket will be available for your viewing (and purchase on October 6th).
Baked goods will be accepted on Friday, October 5th.
We are also encouraging all members, including our youth, to volunteer for many different jobs. Please contact one of the event chairs to volunteer.
