CWL Bazaar Coming Soon!

The Parish CWL (Catholic Women’s League) is now making preparations for the Fall Tea, Bazaar & Penny Sale which will be held on October 18, 2014 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Cost for luncheon is $5 per adult; $3 per child; and free for children less than 5 years of age.

We invite all parishioners to help us. We are in need of prizes for the Penny Sale table. Prizes (new items only) can be small appliances, electronic gadgets, hand crafted items, glassware, china, ceramics, personal gift packs, boxed games, hard covered books, framed pictures, sporting gear equipment or memorabilia, tool sets, bedding & sheet sets, blankets, Halloween & Christmas decorations, a collection of food items to make up food baskets, gift certificates for services and restaurants, and monetary donations.

We also need donations of knitting, sewing, craft items and baking for the Bazaar.

Please bring your Penny Sale prizes before October 15th to the Parish Office or call Marcelle at 705-475-1851 for pick up. All baked goods and food items are to be delivered to the church on Friday, October 17 between 9AM-1PM, or morning of Saturday, October 18.

This project is our ONLY FUND RAISER for the year. The proceeds go to many deserving charities. We know we can depend on St. Peter’s parishioners to help us make this Bazaar a HUGE SUCCESS!
