“Welcome Spring!”

Please Read (Even if you think this doesn’t apply to you!)

Our 2021 Fair “Welcome Spring” is Coming!

Outdoors: April 24th, 10am – 3pm        Online: starting April 12th

Like so many things, the 2020 fair had to be canceled due to the pandemic, but we are back in business for 2021! Just like the Holiday Bazaar, our goal is to have a fun, friendly COVID-responsible outdoor event AND an inviting user-friendly on-line shop.

All Souls Church has been remarkably resilient during this pandemic and these fund-raisers contribute to our financial resources as we continue to be an active positive presence in our community.
This is one of those “many hands make light work “occasions! We are asking you look over our list of volunteer options and see if there is something you could do:

Spread the word! 
Please let your friends and family know about “Welcome Spring” –                                                   both the outdoor and online event.

Give a little loving attention to items created for the cancelled fair last Spring.     Quality checks, sprucing up –  Being in storage can take a toll!

On-line Shop – No tech or crafting expertise needed! Work from the comfort of your home!
Surely you have experienced on-line shopping?! A well-written description provides details and creates enthusiasm for the product. It is quite a project to get that information written up for each of our items for sale. Could you help with this job? We provide the facts – size, materials, etc., and you write a short, friendly description.
