HOLIDAY BAZAAR SUCCESSFUL AND FUN

Img 8453

Saturday morning, November 6th, the long-planned for St. Joseph the worker bazaar opened its doors for the first time since the opandemic hit our community.  Vendors from all over our area set up displays meant to entice and please the eye.  Parishioners bearing freshly-baked goods entered with their offerings and people from all over the are joined the festively-decorated social room.

Customers (2)

Months in the planning, the bazaar simply could not have happened without the voluntary efforts of the women wo stepped up to act as chairs and coordinators:  On the Raffle was Cindy Mackley; Kathi Nordlund oversaw the baked goods organizing and sales; Denise Thornton and Rose Wesley coordinated the White Elephant Table; Mary Toms took charge of the kitchen, and Terri Boris assisted with communication and other odds-'n'-ends.

Alan Stickel

So many of our SJTW groups and parishioners donated time and goods.  The Knights of Columbus donated cash, as did our generous Hispanic Community.  

Denise Thornton

Exciting and unique raffle baskets were created and donated by:  Dayle Haggstrom, Susan Johnson, Darlene McDonald, Lorenzo Nicholson, Fr. Ted Prentice, Will and Susan Rice, Jodie Rossi, Patti Salladay, Alan Stickel, and the Altar Guild.  Heidi Franklin donated the ping-pong and drafting tables.

A huge thank you to Susan Johnson who organized the entire bazaar this year.  She is so grateful to all who participated in any way.  "This event took a 'village' to pull everything together," she remarked, "and it turned out to be a huge success.  The Altar Guild and I feel blessed indeed."
