Fall Bazaar Brings in Funds for Charity

 

Bazaar2016The Women of St. Mark’s heartily thank the congregation for their many, many donated items, donations of food for the kitchen, plus their assistance with our annual bazaar. A special thank you is extended to Deb Holmes for securing freshmen students from Lycoming College to assist in bringing all the tables and the many items from the basement to Fellowship Hall. The students’ energy seemed boundless. Then in the days preceding the sale, several men and women worked each morning to organize the tables in preparation for the big event. During that time it was determined that we needed Crossways Room to hold all the Christmas items.

Bazaar 2016On the day of the bazaar Fellowship Hall seemed filled to capacity with shoppers. The kitchen, under the direction of the Second Saturday folks, saw many hungry customers in addition to our own folks. Fellowship Hall remained busy throughout the day with steady sales.

At the conclusion of the sale, it was inspiring to see several of our members and their children assisting with the clean-up. A special thank you is given to Carol Johnson from Redeemer Lutheran Church, Pam Jensen and Vicki Haussmann for creating our Christmas Shoppe, Bernadette Jones for her Facebook posts advertising our event, our Second Saturday folks for the tasty lunch, Lou and Linda DeSeau and Pastor Elkin for their invaluable assistance throughout the week.

Bazaar 2016Items not sold at our sale were donated to the Shepherd of the Streets, Daniel’s Closet, Newberry Branch of NGA (Needlework Guild of America), Relay for Life/ Lancers Against Cancer, Operation Christmas Child, Parish Life at St. Mark’s, the local SPCA and the American Rescue Workers.

This year we raised almost $1,900 with the possibility of more money being donated. These funds will be distributed by the Women of St. Mark’s in support of charities both locally and globally.
