Well, here we go! The first of our major October events has arrived, and we will see if all the hours and hours of hard work will translate into another successful sale. I can't help but think our Bazaar angels are looking over our shoulders, and will give us the energy and strength to make it through until the end of Saturday! Kudos to Sandy Bedard, Dawn Kezer, Gail Voorhees, and all their wonderful and dedicated helpers. Two or three people do not make this sale happen. It is the combined efforts of many hands that contribute hours of hard work to make this major fund raiser happen. Thanks to all of you - your love for St. Mary's comes shining through. If you read this message on Friday in the enews, know that there are still many opportunities to help on Saturday. If you don't see this until the Sunday morning bulletin, ask how everything went, and let the volunteers know how much they are appreciated!
Next up, the 9th Annual Ramona Bluegrass Festival on October 27th, from 12 PM to 7 PM. We are getting down to the wire, and one of our biggest needs at this time is someone who would be willing to act as our volunteer coordinator. Many people have told us that they will be available on Saturday to help with anything we might need. Our volunteer coordinator would simply manage that particular function. We hope to make a large board with all of the jobs identified, and then broken down into time slots. That way if someone offers to help, we can either ask them what they would like to do, or see if we can assign them a task we need to have taken care of. Sounds simple enough right? This is a job that will be a great help to the entire committee, and we hope there's someone out there who is willing to step up and take it on. Also, we're still looking for pop-ups and outdoor lighting. If you're willing to loan us those items, please let someone on the committee know. Committee members would be Rob, Connie, Pete, Jill, Carol, Penney, just to name a few.
Since our plates are very full with these two major events, I'm a bit short on other announcements. Stay tuned, we should be getting back to normal within the next few weeks!
