Fall Treasure Sale – October 29, 2016, 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The time is now! Set aside those wonderful knick-knacks, books and rarely admired dust gatherers, place them gently in a large box and bring them to church for our annual Fall Treasure Sale. This year we would like contributions that include house-wares, books (no texts or encyclopedias, please!), linens, good jewelry, plants, accessories (hats, purses, belts, scarves, etc.),
collectibles–including antiques, holiday costumes, toys, games, small child items
(highchair, etc.), bikes, small furniture (lamps, side chairs), china, silverware and vintage clothing.
No regular clothing please.  
Donations are welcome the week of the sale. Wednesday, Oct. 26…
11 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
Thursday, Oct. 27…9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 28…9 a.m. to 7 p.m..
All proceeds from the sale will help support the revamping of our Youth Wing.
Volunteers Needed
To make sure our sale is a great success, we need your help. It takes quite an effort to set up, arrange, sell and tear down during those 4 intense days of October. It would be wonderful to have lots of gentlemen and ladies sign up for two hour stints on one or more of those days.
Wed., Oct.26, 11-1, 1-3, 3-5
Thurs., Oct 27, 9-11, 11-1, 1-3, 3-5
Fri., Oct. 28, 9-11, 11-1, 1-3, 3-5, 5-7
Sat., Oct. 29, 7-9, 9-11, 11-1, 1-3ish!
It isn't too early to commit to a time slot.
Please call or email Martha Gessler if you can help out or if you have any questions about the sale.

Thanks one and all!
