SILENT AUCTION
Sunflower Illusions Quilt
Calvary's Mission & Membership Committee is extending an invitation to both the Calvary and Northminster congregations to participate in a very special fundraiser to support the Heifer International Organization.

This beautiful 60 x 61" quilt, which was made by hand by Ruthanne Lungociu and kindly donated, will be on display every Sunday in the month of October * during Calvary's coffee hour.
With the quilt will be an auction sheet where you can place your name, a phone number, and your bid amount. Encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to participate and support this great cause. Information about the Heifer International Organization can be found in Fellowship Hall.

* I had mistakenly said that October 20 was the last day to bid on the quilt. Bids will still be taken this Sunday, October 27. Barb
Thanks to all
who supported this endeavor with your contributions!
