Craft and Bake Sale a Success!

Once again our Craft and Bake Sale proved to be a huge success. There were lots of crafts and baking - despite being busy with the new church. Thank you to all the contributers.
We raised approximately $1467.00 at the bake sale, $202.00 at the lunch, $696.00 at the silent auction and $2862.00 at the live auction sale for an unconfirmed total of $5228.00. All the proceeds go to the building fund.
The building committee hopes that everyone had a good time visiting while admiring and buying the handiwork of fellow parishioners.

Lorne, and autioneer Gordon urge a higher bid while Carrie displays the quilt for sale. Carrie is one of our more prolific crafters!

Dennis, Kalen, Amanda and Shawn watch, and record the successful bidders!

The crowd watches closely as the bidding progresses!

As with every event, clean up is necessary. Here, neighbours, Len and Tony man the brooms while Susan checks that it is done right! (Just remember, you are not using curling brooms!)

Then it was time to go home.

On Monday morning volunteers are getting together at the new church to clean up in preparation for the flooring crew.
