Have you made your donation for the April 4th Bright Future Auction yet? The deadline for donation submissions is March 8, in order to get everything ready for the auction booklet. If you have a last minute donation, you can access the donation form online here or pick one up in the church office. Any questions? Email us at Auction@firstuuwilm.org. Remember, all tangible items must be new (unlike Togs and Treasures).
Your auction team members will be available in the Parish Hall on March 8th, equipped with wonderfully playful bobble headbands and donation forms to help you decide how to best share your own special gifts and treasures. You won’t be able to miss us!
