FSA BULLETIN BOARD
Despite the Bazaar being cancelled this year, you can still buy many of your sought-after one-of-kind gifts items. We’ve assembled links to our vendors on our Bazaar web-page. Check it out and make contact to buy from them directly. Tell your friends.
Look here for announcements of campaigns and events that are being promoted within the church as well as general administrative advisories for the congregation.
We haven’t been able to have our meetings or attend church, so our regular offerings are down. The Phantom Tea is our major fund-raiser. Donations (made out to “First-St. Andrew’s United Church Women”) can be mailed to the church, 350 Queens Avenue, London, ON, N6B 1X6.
In honour of the Tea Campaign, as has become tradition, Millie Bates has composed the following poem:
UCW Phantom Tea, 2021
Again it is our Phantom Tea time
And I need to come up with a new rhyme.
Things have been on hold for almost a year
And the latest orders are very clear.
Stay in your home; stay out of a crowd.
We got the message, clear and loud.
No rummage sale in the spring, no bazaar in November.
Never happened before as long as I can remember.
Still − bills to be paid − we don’t have to look far.
We already know what those needs are.
My Sister’s Place, ELUCO, to name only two
Many more charities that, thanks to you.
We can “Do unto Others” as we should
And pray for brighter days in the neighbourhood.
Shopping Card News ……we are fully stocked with cards to look after your weekly shopping or gift card needs. Buy them at the church or email firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order for home delivery. This is an important fundraiser for the church as we sell approximately $150,000 of cards annually, making a $7,000 profit.
