BazaarFall Bazaar a Success!


The Women of St. Mark’s heartily thank the congregation for their many, many donations of items to sell and food for the kitchen plus their assistance with our annual bazaar.

On the day of the bazaar the rain did not deter those looking for bargains. Fellowship Hall seemed filled to capacity with shoppers. Fellowship Hall remained busy throughout the day with steady sales.

BazaarThe kitchen, under the direction of the Second Saturday folks, saw many hungry customers in addition to our own folks.

This year we raised $1,191.00 with an additional donation from Thrivent Financial of $300.00. These funds will be distributed by the Women of St. Mark’s in support of charities both locally and globally.

A special thank you is extended to Deb Holmes for bringing 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 day. We were blessed to have many new faces assist with these preparations.

BazaarAt 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, Lou and Linda DeSeau and Pastor Elkin for their invaluable assistance throughout the week.

Items 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 Cancers, Operation Christmas Child and the American Rescue Workers. 

After two modest expenses we made a profit of $1,146.91 with an additional $300.00 being donated by Thrivent Financial in recognition of our efforts. The congregation’s support in one form or another will allow us to fund charities both locally and globally. We are blessed indeed!
