Congregation Members:

We know it is still Fall...

but the Christmas Fair will be here before you know it,


We need your help...
- If you have decorations suitable for decorations on a hand-made wreath...
- If you have items of value that would be good in our Silent Auction...
- or a good or service that you can donate a gift certificate for...
- If you can purchase items to make up a Gift Basket along a specific theme... (see below )
- If you have items that could go in the Nice Twice (see below)

- We are also looking for bubblewrap (small-sized bubble only) to wrap fragile items purchased in Nice Twice

If you have any of these items, please put them aside and bring them to the church beginning November 13. There will be specially marked tables for them in Fellowship Hall.

Also, we need helpers to put the tent out in front of the Chapel for Twice Nice on Sunday, Nov.26 after worship.


For more information about the fair, please contact Charlie Meade, Planning Team leader

Nice Twice

Our Christmas Fair is coming right up on Saturday, Dec. 2nd.  Sue Stauffacher is asking you to start gathering items for Nice Twice.  These would be items you don't need/want anymore that would be appropriate for Nice Twice (think tag sale).  We only ask that everything be clean and working.  Please hold your donations until after church on Sunday, November 26th.


We take household items that are clean and in working condition, kitchen items, small appliances, garden items, toys, puzzles, Christmas items, books (not textbooks), etc.    


We don't take clothing, electronics, exercise equipment, sports equipment, luggage, computers, TV's, baby equipment, textbooks, and large furniture.  If you are unsure, please ask or call Sue Stauffacher, 860-354-1274, prior to 7:00 p.m.


If you would like to be a helper the week prior to the Fair, and if you'd like to work the day of the Fair, please let Sue Stauffacher know.
