Why Wait Until Christmas?  Announcing the St. Paul’s Harvest Fair October 24th!
 
St. Paul’s is turning the Christmas Fair into an October Harvest Fair, to be held in the church garden on Saturday, October 24 (rain date October 31).  This fair will include Baked Goods, the Country Store, Fiber Arts, Jewelry, Knives, and possibly more—in other words, many of the components for which our traditional Christmas Fair is known.  The Gourmet Freezer (frozen meals, ready to eat) and the Wreaths and Greenery table will be taking orders for meals and Christmas decorations as usual, with delivery in early December.
 
We need volunteers for fair set-up, cleanup, and to greet people
and help staff tables.
The fair will be open from 10 to 2. We are asking for volunteers to work only 90-minute shifts to lessen potential exposure to germs. That means we’ll need more people. We are taking every precaution to ensure volunteer safety. All activities will be outdoors. We will have face shields available if you would like to wear one over your mask and plenty of hand sanitizer. You will not need to fill out or touch sale tally sheets. Based on the Attic Treasures Sale last month, this will be plenty of fun!  
Please contact Jan DeBlieu at jdeblieu@mindspring.com to volunteer.
 
Used jewelry is also needed. Please contact Bonny Labonte at bd.labonte@comcast.net to arrange a drop-off time. 

Fiber Arts are needed.  Please contact Charla Spann at chaspann13@gmail.com  or 844-8220 to arrange a drop-off time.   Someone from Holy Stitchers will meet you at the church to receive fiber arts donations, record the name/address of who made each item, and help set an appropriate price. 

The Bake and Candy Table
 needs your homemade items  – Do not wait this year for your personal phone call from me requesting you donate as in past years. Simply bring your donations to the double doors at the rear of the Great Hall on Friday, October 23rd from 10 am to 4 pm, or at 9 am on Saturday, October 24th. Our best-selling items are pies, candy, specialty cakes, and yeast bread. Because of Covid-19, we are having to be extraordinarily careful this year. Bakers must use safe kitchen techniques as described Here

Freezer Gourmet meals are available for preorder– with pickup on Dec. 5th.  Choose from delicious offerings! We are still charging only $15.00 for a two-person meal, and $30.00 for four servings. Click here for an order form or order online at https://st-pauls-episcopal-church-104807.square.site/

Wreaths & Sprays are available for preorder– with pickup on Dec. 5th. Wreaths may be ordered plain, bow only, decorated only, or with bow and decorations. Each wreath is unique; our wreath decorators are artists and bring their own creative talents to the task. Click here for an order form or order online at https://st-pauls-episcopal-church-104807.square.site/

Please also consider a donation to the Outreach Fund to help offset a potential decrease in fair profits because of Covid-19 restrictions. Donations can be sent to the church office or made online at https://stpaulsmaine.breezechms.com/give/online
Many thanks!
