It’s time for Bazaar 2016!
For new members, the Christ Lutheran Church Women hold a Bake Sale and Raffle in the Friendship Room in conjunction with the annual Lutefisk Dinner. Here is a sample of what our members bake or prepare:
traditional Norwegian treats, brownies, cookies, bars,
pastries, breads, jams, jellies, horseradish, relishes, beet pickles
Still other members with different skills and talents create items for the raffle portion of the Bazaar. Examples of items raffled in past years are:
paintings, carvings, table runners, floral arrangements,
wood working, homemade cards, quilts and jewelry
Some members have opted to donate gift cards for movies, food or gasoline. The sky is the limit!
Money generated from the Bazaar has been used for a wide variety of things throughout the years. Some has stayed here at CLC for needs within our congregation. Most has been distributed to outside organizations both close to home and worldwide, such as the DeForest Area Needs Network (D.A.N.N.), the Salvation Army, Lutheran World Relief and Women’s Jail Chaplaincy, and others. Last year we contributed to the new CLC roof project, D.A.N.N., Second Harvest and the Salvation Army.
So star thinking about your talent and what you can contribute. Any questions can be directed to Vicki Sobczak, Bazaar Chair, at 846-2920 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
