Kris Kringle Fair Update for Oct. 25



Saturday, November 12th,

9 a.m. – 3 p.m.



Two weeks to go and I hope you have been gathering goods in salable condition and baking your favorites. Have you signed up to help out the week before, work at a table or for clean-up? Stop by the KK Fair Table at Sunday Social Hours to ask questions and to sign up for the jobs that fit you best or email Jenna Rankin Doucette at

These Special Requests from Table Leaders will make the fair profitable and will be a fun experience for you:

•  Kids Toys needs volunteers for setup and for fair day to help in this favorite area for youngsters and for those buying for kids. (,

•  Attic Treasures continues to seek individuals to help with cashiering and sales both inside and out under the tent. Please consider signing up for a two hour shift…we promise hilarity, hi-jinks, fun, and funds for the church. (,

•  Jewelry requests help arranging shiny baubles onto display in the week before the fair (during the day is best). This is a new request so all volunteers are welcome. Lynne Champion

•  Set-up (Chris Doucette), Parking/Shuttle (Rob Craig-Comin) and Clean-Up (Mark Taitz) offer opportunities to help the week before, during and immediately after the last sale on Fair Day.

•  All Tables have time slots to fill during the fair to sell to friends of the church and to the guests from the wider community. Easy to sign up at Social Hour, contact table heads listed or email Jenna at
