PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN OUR ANNUAL FALL FAIR
On NOVEMBER 5th, 11th, and 16th It’s not just about work, you’ll have time to relax,
Come and join us at 10, for tea, coffee and snacks.
Summer vacation is over, and the Fall has set in, Our soup and our sandwiches every year is a hit,
So anxious folks at our church are geared up to begin. We’ll be serving that up starting 12 and a bit.
The season’s activities, and one that’s favoured and dear,
Is the fair that’s traditional year after year. At the end of the day when activities cease,
From the hustle and bustle, we’ll all need release.
We have so much to offer and to add to the fun, But there’s no need to rush home and have dinner to fix,
This year we’ll expand it to three days and not one. Because the vestry is serving a feast here at 6.
Our flea market will be the appetizer, for November 5th it is set
So please bring in some treasurers to make it the best we’ve had yet. On Wednesday the 16th, around 8 pm I would say,
We invite you to share in a card game to play.
The entrée will follow, six days hence, it will be, We’ll have the usual good prizes and a nice cup of tea,
Showing displays that’s been created by our church family. All are welcome to join in our GRAND FINALE.
Please roll up your sleeves and follow alongside
To make breads, cakes and cookies, that we’ll sell with great pride.
Don’t forget Gertie’s table; we have wonderful knitters, no doubt.
She’d like sweaters, socks, mitts, or anything you can turn out.
We can sell table cloths, aprons, place mats; oh how fast they can go,
So we appeal to the girls on the machine who can sew.
The Altar Guild ladies, favour a Christmas layout,
Like home-mades with a festive theme, is what they’re all about.
They’d welcome wreaths, ornaments, and woodworking too,
And wouldn’t turn down a craft that some skilled men can do.
To add to that theme, Sharon’s project sounds nice,
It’s called a Christmas Surprise with a two dollar price.
She’d accept any small item, not necessarily about St. Nick,
I’m sure she’d go along with almost anything you pick.
To clue up the 11th, I’d go so far as to bet,
That our pickles and preserves are the best you can get.
Home grown vegetables too that you harvest with care,
We know you’ll be generous again, at this fall sale to share.
