Believe it or not, our 11th Annual Sock Hop and Car Cruise will be here before you know it; so mark your calendars and plan on coming to the upper church parking lot on Sunday, July 26th from 2:30 to 8:00 p.m. This is Outreach council’s Biggest fundraiser, so bring your family and friends for a fun-filled afternoon/evening of great food, live music, dancing, car cruise, kids’ games, and Gift Basket/Silent Auctions. There will be fun for all ages!
In order to have a quality event of this magnitude, we will need a lot of help. If you haven’t already picked up a Gift Basket donation request slip from the table in the Narthex, please consider doing so. There are many themes to pick from. Please choose one that you would like to purchase items pertaining to that theme, follow the directions on the paper and return your basket to the church by July 12th. We will be placing the baskets in the Narthex for several weeks prior to the event, so anyone who can’t come to the Shop Hiop can purchase tickets in advance and still have a chance to win. Also, if you have any empty baskets that you are not using and would like to donate them to be used a gift basket, please place them under the table in the Narthex. Anyone who needs a basket for their items, please feel free to take one. Or, just bring your items to the church, and we will wrap it up for you.
There is so much work that needs to be done. We need people to help in the kitchen with food preparation on Saturday, help on Sunday with set up and clean-up, and many people are needed to serve at the food booths during the event. In the near future there will be a sign-up sheet posted on the bulleltin board in the Narthex. Please consider giving an hour or two of your time to help us raise money for the less fortunate in our area and around the world. You’ll meet a lot of great people and have some fun too! All help if greatly appreciated; we can’t do it without you. Everyone needs to eat, so at the very least, please come and enjoy some great food with some good friends!
Attending Sock Hop has become a wonderful summer family tradition, You won’t want to miss it. Hope to see everyone there!
