Well, good people, the rummage sale is now just over a week away! There is much to do. With this being our largest fund raiser of the year, we really, REALLY need everyone to help out as they can and when they can.
A sign-up sheet is posted in the Gathering Space. Please consider sharing an hour or two of your time with setting things up during the week of Aug. 10 through the 14th and during the two days of the sale on Aug. 15 and 16.
It is crucial we have plenty of our parish family involved in this. If you’re able to sit for a few hours, you are welcome to do so at the check-out tables. There’s plenty of volunteer opportunities for everyone.
This Sunday, Aug. 10th, we will move the chairs and other items out of the Hall and place them in the Noah’s Ark Space. All the rummage items in the Noah’s Ark Space along with everything already in the Hall will be placed on tables and areas for display and purchasing. We need plenty of help. We need YOU.
Also, we need:
1) The donation of your clean, sell-able items (PLEASE NO electronic equipment such as televisions, computers and monitors)
2) Clean newspaper for wrapping glass and fragile items
3) Clean plastic and/or paper bags
4) More folding tables
These items can be brought in any time. Place these items near Manny’s office. Please remember to mark your tables with your name.
This is going to be a great event…share in the fun and excitement by sharing in the work and effort! God bless us, one and all and may this year’s sale be a smashing success.
Take a walk down Ridge Avenue and you’ll see how the lawns are so well cared for and manicured. St. Nicholas’ lawns are certainly no exception. No sir.
However, in order to keep our lawns looking fine and tended, we need the helping hands of our parish family.
If you can afford a few hours a week, enjoy the great outdoors and are comfortable with a riding and push mower…well then, do we have a proposal for you!
Consider spending those few hours by caring for the lawns here at our church. And, consider the rewards…they are absolutely heavenly.
Mike Golden has already taken his ride and what a wonderful job he did. Eason Williams has also put his hat in the ring and will help out, too. So, who is next?
Please see Manny for additional information. Again, thank you to the entire Community of St. Nicholas for everything we do to keep our church alive and well.
To my dear St. Nicholas community – my sisters and brothers in faith,
This is the feast which surpasses all feasts. This is the feast that brings us the fullness of joy and and the fulfillment of God’s divine promise to us, God’s children: the resurrection of Jesus the Christ from the grave brings us New Life and a share in Paradise.
I wish to share with you my fullest and deepest blessings and my love which, first and foremost, is rooted in Our Lord and graciously and willingly shared with each and everyone.
Happy Easter. Celebrate and rejoice, my friends . . . Jesus is alive and His reign shall last forever and ever.
Your brother and friend,
Vicar, St. Nicholas Episcopal Church
