Last Chance to Order Christmas Wreaths
Order forms for Christmas wreaths are now in the Fellowship Hall. Traditional wreaths feature a red bow and pine cones; “natural” includes a variety of natural decorations, including cones. The wreaths will be available at church for pick-up on Sunday, Dec. 3, and also can be picked up after that date. If you’d like wreaths earlier, please let us know and we’ll try to get them to you! Wreaths again are priced at $20, and please pay when you pick them up. After materials cost, all funds go to Broad Bay.
To order by e-mail or phone, contact Maryann at firstname.lastname@example.org or 273-3169. Ordering deadline is Sunday, Nov. 19. The wreath bases we use are put together right in Damariscotta by seasonal workers, so you are supporting the local economy! Also, remember that wreaths make a great gift for a relative, friend, or special neighbor ‘cause they “keep on giving” all through the winter months … so order two, or more!
Due to the fact that there were 5 Sundays in October, it means we go three weeks without being able to reload the cards. And the 4th Sunday in December is Christmas Eve, which kind of misses the mark for holiday groceries! So, from now until the end of the year we will go biweekly in hopes that this will be more convenient. The dates are:
- Nov 5
- Nov 19
- Dec 3
- Dec 17
- Musicians, especially organist, sought. Seeking musicians, especially an organist who wants to bring musical gifts to our worship. Requirements: ability to use music to open hearts and soothe souls.
- If you would like to provide flowers for Sunday Worship, contact Linda Brandt to sign up.
- Clink recycling bags are available at the back of the sanctuary, proceeds go to the Heifer Project.
- Art and Scripture meets Mondays 10:30 am. All are welcome, art skills optional.
Saturday, December 9th
As we all get ready for the upcoming holiday season, don't forget the Fair! Here's a list of some of what we will be offering and will have a need for:
Cookie walk - cookies (obviously!)
Bake sale - pies, jams, jellies, breads, etc
Broad Bay Craft Table - if you do a craft and feel you can donate a few items, we can put together a great table of our own!
Childrens Table - games, puzzles, toys, books, art materials that are either new or gently used that will be exclusively for kids and specially priced for them
Raffle - we need 10 items that people can buy tickets for. Services, themed baskets (like a knitters delight basket, or a kitchen basket, etc), finished craft items like a quilted table runner, etc. were all a big hit last year.
Silent Auction - got a kayak or canoe or piece of art work that you just don't use anymore? Consider donating it for the Trustees amazing silent auction!
Broad Bay Bistro - we will be doing breakfast sandwiches and take out items, so we will need:
- four dozen eggs
- four packages English muffins
- four pounds sausage patties
- crock pots of soup or chowder or stew for take out
We will also be having fresh wreaths for sale, a 50/50 raffle, and outside vendors.
Let's make this the best fair yet!
