OUR CHRISTMAS FAIR & BAKE SALE was a resounding success!  Your support for this event, our church’s largest single fundraiser of the year, means so very much. We raised more than $4700.00 after expenses!!

Sincerest thanks to everyone who helped to make it such a huge success, through your donations of time, money, crafts, Silent Auction and sale items and baked goods. Your efforts make all the difference!

Special thanks to all our amazing volunteers whose endless energy and goodwill made the event full of fun and fellowship.  Thanks to John Bliss and Cynthia Batchelor for counting the money, to Jann in the office for all her help and to Joan, our invaluable caretaker for all her extra work.

Sincerely, Mary Ponsford, Priscilla Archer & Dianne Keats,  Co-Ordinators
