FRIENDSHIP FAIR BASKET CHALLENGE – CONTRIBUTE A BASKET . . .
We need you to create a basket for our raffle table. Fill your baskets with gift certificates, gourmet treats, or products that are current and popular. The basket that draws the largest number of tickets wins a prize! Bring your finished baskets to the parish hall on Sunday, October 13th. Please sign on the sign-up sheet in the parish hall so we get an idea of the number and type of baskets we will have at the Fair.
QUILT RAFFLE . . . BUY AND SELL TICKETS
You will certainly want more tickets for the Lydia Paulsen quilt than those that were sent to you by the Fair committee. Just speak to Mertella Barnes at our Sunday coffee hours for additional tickets or visit the parish office.
BAKE FOR THE ASCENSION BAKESHOP (formerly Plain & Fancy) . . .
Our best-selling cookie assortments require all of our bakers to make their tastiest HOMEMADE cookies.

We need your help.
