Our church boasts a very active ECW (Episcopal Church Women) who call themselves the Women of St. Mary's (WOSM). They are a social, spiritual and fundraising group who meet on a monthly basis for business and social occasions. The highlights are our Bunco nights and Christmas Party. Their main fundraiser has been a Church Bazaar which includes a Boutique, Rummage Sale, Soup and Baked Goods sale as well as an opportunity drawing for a lovely homemade quilt. This activity provides the women with fellowship as well as outreach to the Community. The monies raised then go to support various charities in our own church, diocese, nation and abroad.
We currently have about 23 women who come together for different functions as time permits. We also help by delivering meals to those in times of need. All women older than age 18 years are automatically members of this worthwhile organization. We invite everyone to join in and grow in Grace!
Women of St. Mary's
Looking ahead, we will have a night by the Fire Pit at Marisa's at the end of July, and on August 10th we will have a White Elephant Pot Luck. Also in August we will ask for volunteers to begin the process of sorting and pricing items for the Annual Fall Bazaar which will be held this year on October 13th. Of course all the women will hopefully have time to recuperate before we all lend a hand at the upcoming Blue Grass Festival! Lots going on and lots to be excited about!
WOSM sponsered all church Fall Bazaar! Just a reminder to everyone that Oct. will be here before we know it as will our annual Fall Bazaar. With this in mind I am asking that everyone begin gathering salable items for both the Boutique and the Rummage sale. We have some room in our storage unit but would really prefer it if you can hang on to things until it gets closer. Call Sandy at 760-789-0656 or Gail at 760-271-7630 if you have questions
