Greetings from Kermit! 

As I predicted, the Piggy Bank Bazaar Workshops are off and running, getting ready for this year’s Bazaar! The annual Cleaning of Piggy’s Closet is completed, donation requests have been decided, and the first couple workshops are complete!! Now, if only it would get WARM – I’m tired of being COLD all the time!!!  

The Wednesday Morning Workshops for March will be held on the 7th, 14th and 21st (there is NO MEETING on the 28th!!) They’re held in Room 15, at 9:30 a.m. There are lots of new, easy projects planned, and usually several are being worked on at the same time, so there is bound to be something that is PERFECT for YOU!! Please JOIN IN! Last year’s workshops made over 1600 crafty gifts for the Bazaar, and we’re aiming to do at least that many, so your help would be most welcome. Children are always welcome, too!!  

Each year the Bazaar makes donations from the previous year’s profits. The folks at the Annual Planning Meeting decided that this year’s donations would be to the church’s Property Fund, the Sound System for the sanctuary, the Youth Group, the Mommy Connection, the Sunday School, and the New Hackensack Nursery School.

Piggy’s Closet has been all cleaned up and rearranged, and there’s room for lots of new supplies. Mrs. Ray (my nice human friend who is also looking forward to warm weather, although she doesn’t complain like I do) tells me we need Easter or gift basket grass, new pencils, new pens, rulers, yardsticks, floral foam, floral moss, silk flowers, vases, beads, jewelry making supplies, mugs, new nails, screws, hooks and washers, fleece, scrap booking paper, pompoms, polyester stuffing and batting, rhinestones, wiggle eyes, plastic storage tubs, Styrofoam cones and balls, scissors, tissue paper, Christmas gift bags, Christmas gift wrapping, all types of ribbon, yarn and other miscellaneous craft supplies. The Wednesday Morning crowd really enjoys creating gifts from your donations, and they help keep our costs down!!

 Take Home Kit Sunday will be May 13th, and we’d like to have a variety of crafts available for members of the congregation to take home with them. Please consider becoming a Kit designer!! Each designer takes a craft idea, makes a sample of that craft, writes the directions, and assembles the materials needed to make more of the item. Please call Mrs. Ray (Carol, at 297-4830) and volunteer!! She has lots of ideas, and tells me that last year’s Take Home Kits produces 557 gifts. YOUR PARTICIPATION would be a GREAT help!! Time for me to go find someplace WARM!! I hope I’ll see YOU at the Workshops!

Yours in love,
