Fund Raising Events:
Calendars – Pastor Reep has provided us with another 12 months of beautiful original artwork to greet us with each passing month in 2023. This year the proceeds of our fund raising event will be used for a canopy over the Food Pantry Walkway. This improvement of our facility will provide protection for pantry clients from rain, snow and summer sun. Sales of the calendars and sale of the original artwork will help us reach our goal to pay for the cost of the project. We are asking for a donation of $20 per calendar.
“Cooking with Clyde,” would make a great gift for Family/Friends/Cat Lovers who enjoy cooking. “Cooking with Clyde” is a 230-page cookbook of recipes collected over 60 years by Sue Welsh Cassidy. She loved to be in the kitchen as a child with her mother, Toni Welsh, and later her cat Clyde, for whom the book is named. The cookbook is available at the church and all proceeds will go to the Capital Campaign to help defray renovation expenses. Donation $20.
