CPC e-news for October 28, 2016

The 2016 BOOKS, BAKERY AND BARGAINS BAZAAR is November 4th and 5th.

The Central Presbyterian Church Fall Bazaar!
Plans have been made for another fun, fall weekend!

Friday, November 4th
Once again there will be a delicious dinner in the evening to kickoff the bazaar weekend.  

The family dinner will begin at 5:30 with doors open.  Serving will begin at 6:15.
Our new “MYSTERY” dessert will take place as an auction by tables, following the meal.  The youth will be conducting the auction of whole desserts which will be on display prior to the meal.  You can be planning ahead!  The proceeds of the auction will go to the youth funds.  As before, we will be having our games after dinner, and small change will be needed to participate in these, as well as the dessert auction.

Bazaar Ladies Need Your HELP!   “Many hands make light work.”
Our delicious pre-bazaar dinner and evening of entertainment will be on Friday, November 4th, and our doors will open to the public for sales on Saturday, November 5th from 8 am-2 pm. It will be an exciting weekend, but it won’t happen by itself.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!   Donations of BOOKS and gently used household items should be placed in the storage room off of fellowship hall.  This year we will have a special area set aside for new or seldom played with toys and games that your children no longer want.  Our BAKERY section is always a favorite place for goodies.  How about making your favorite recipe of something tasty and bringing it to sell?
Volunteer workers are still needed for several jobs.  Look for Donna Garrison or Barbara Schmidt downstairs after worship.  They have a list of jobs and tasks that you can select from.
