We Need Your Donations!
This year’s Roaring in the 20s Auction promises to be another huge success and it starts with your donations!
April may seem like a long way away, but it’s not too soon for you to start thinking about what you can donate to the auction this year. Can you host a dinner party, or offer a vacation home? Maybe you have treasures that no longer spark joy and are ready for a new home. Can you offer a class or lead a group on a tour? Themed baskets are always of interest. Or perhaps you can lead a class or nature walk, bake cookies? Get creative, team up with fellow congregants, and help make our 2020 auction catalog the best one ever! For more ideas, check out the poster board in church this week, and thank you in advance for your generosity!
