Greetings from Kermit! 

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 ( 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 mosses.

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,
