Church Bazaar – August 20th

Paul Cederstrom, locally famous for his delicious jellies, is looking for empty jam jars that he guarantees will be refilled just in time for the Bazaar! Please drop them them off to the church office as soon as possible!

Volunteers are needed the week of August 14th to price items. Please see Megan Phaneuf if you can help or contact her at 232-1060.
