Greetings from Kermit! 

We’re getting closer to the 2018 Piggy Bank Bazaar, Saturday, December 1, 2018, a time for children to do their Christmas shopping. 

With summer just about behind us, the Piggy Bank team will be really busy for the next few months getting ready. Wednesday Workshops in September will be held on the 12th, 19th and 26th in Room 15 of the Education Center, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Young children are always welcome!! All the projects are simple, and YOU could really help!! Some of the crafts planned for the fall are painted mason jar pencil holders, glass stone magnets, decorated wood cut out words, music and bells on a painted block, small flower arrangements, decorated bicycles, pillows, and a sand dollar ornament with shells. Please JOIN IN, have FUN, and help get ready for the young humans to do their Christmas shopping!! 

The Bazaar needs to be heavily advertised to the public in November, so we are looking for new outlets to promote it. Please help us tell everyone about this wonderful event for Children! If you have any ideas, or can help get the word out, please contact Carol Ray to get posters, cards, or soft copy information for distribution. 

Many of you have Take Home Kits. These can be returned to Room 15 at any time. Piggy Bank goodies are on display in the Gathering Room showcase in November, so it would be great if we could have your Kits returned by then, so they can be included. 

The Wednesday Workshop folks (whom I hope YOU will join!!) tell me that there are some supplies they really need, including glass votive candle holders, jingle bells, fleece fabric, craft paint, paint brushes, new pencils and pens, small pretty sea shells, felt, yarn, floral moss, floral foam, silk flowers, wiggly eyes, rhinestones, mugs, craft birds, polyester stuffing and batting, stickers, assorted new nails, screws, bolts, washers, etc., pliers, beads, old jewelry, jewelry making supplies, scrap booking paper, ribbon, dowel sticks, pom poms, and other crafty supplies. The Plant Table will need bunches and BUNCHES of plants in December – these are always very popular. For the Bazaar day, we’ll need rolls and Rolls of gift wrapping, gift bags, tissue paper, ribbon, bows, scissors, Scotch tape, and large paper bags with handles. Your donations can be placed in Room 15 at any time. 

Piggy Bank is always very willing to share supplies from Piggy’s Closet, and happy to help groups that work with children! Also, a Great Big Froggy Thank You to all who have donated craft materials and gift items! These help us to keep costs down, and allow the Workshop folks to have fun creating new gifts!!

It’s time for me to hop back down to the pond, to enjoy what’s left of the warm, green summer months. But I’ll be hopping back from time to time, and I hope to see YOU at the Wednesday Workshops!

 Yours in Love,
