The 42nd annual Piggy Bank Bazaar will be held on
Saturday, December 1st, 2018. It’s a WONDERFUL event for CHILDREN to do
their own Christmas shopping. All of the gifts are reasonably priced,
with none costing more than $3.00. The Bazaar will run
from 9:00 A. M. until Noon.
October’s Wednesday Morning Workshops
will be held in Rooms 13 and 15, at 9:30 A. M., on the 3rd, 10th,
17th, 24th, and 31st. That’s FIVE Workshops in October – FIVE
opportunities for YOU to be part of this year’s Piggy Bank Bazaar! There
are usually 20 or so different craft projects underway, many of them
quite easy, so there’s bound to be something perfect for
YOU!! Please join in!! Young children are always welcome, too!
Mrs. Ray (my nice human friend who is
looking forward to FIVE Workshops in one month!!) reminds me that Piggy
has a large inventory of really wonderful, great quality gifts to sell
this year. The Bazaar needs to be heavily advertised to the public in
November, so we’re looking for new outlets to promote it. Please help us
tell everyone about this wonderful event for children. If you have
ideas, or can help us get the word out, please contact Carol Ray (firstname.lastname@example.org)
to get posters, postcards, or soft copy for distribution.
Take Home Kits can be returned as soon as
you’ve finished them, to Room 15 at any time. Please try to bring them
in by the end of October, so they can be included in the Piggy Bank
Display in the Gathering Area in November.
There are some supplies we really need,
including Halloween candy (we need this in November), containers to fill
with Halloween candy, mugs, Dollar store tablecloths, napkins, paper
plates, plastic silverware, scrap booking paper, stickers, rubber bands,
paper clips, pliers, screw drivers, good scissors, manicure scissors,
wiggle eyes, pom poms, jingle bells, dowel sticks, craft paints, paint
brushes, yarn, ribbon, vases, silk flowers, floral foam and floral
In December we’ll need large paper bags
with handles, tissue paper, gift wrapping, gift bags, gift ribbons, and
Scotch tape. Our plant table will need SCADS of plants – it is always
very popular. Each should include the name of the plant and care
directions. We ask that you please keep these at home until November 30th.
Wow, with so much going on I’m getting worn out already,
and it’s not even October yet! I think I’ll relax for a
while down at my pond, but I’ll be hopping back on Wednesday – FIVE
TIMES!! - to look in on the Workshops, and I hope to see YOU there!!
Yours in love,
