Help us prepare for the 2021 Harvest Fair!
We need your help to make this year’s Harvest Fair (held on October 23) extra special!

1) We’re looking for items we can sell at the fair in the following categories:

Jewelry, New Gifts, Knit and Sew, Crafts, Toys, Books, Holiday Decorations, Plants, Antiques and Collectibles, Silent Auction Items, Baked Goods, and Raffle Baskets

Now if a good time to start plants to donate, just take a cutting from one of your favorite plants and start a plant for the fair! If you make jam or jelly, make an extra jar for the fair. If you are cleaning out a closet and fine some new item you were given and will never use, think of the fair!

2) Knitters and crocheters: There is an abundance of yarn at the church that you are welcome to use. Please contact Kristin if you’d like to arrange a pickup.
A Note from Kristin

My St. Paul's Family,

I will be retiring from my position as Parish Administer at the end of August. I am looking forward to having more free time to spend with my family, and time to do some travelling with my husband. This was a difficult decision because I love my work here, and all of you. I will miss seeing you. I am not leaving St. Paul's, just my position on staff. You will still see me at church for worship and lay ministry!

With thanks for all of you,

Kristin
