Annual Parish Picnic Collection Underway

The Annual Parish Picnic will be held on Sunday, July 7, from 12:30pm to 6:30pm. In addition to the food, fun and dancing, this picnic is an important fundraiser for our parish. As in the past years, we will donate 25% of the proceeds to the Merton Center for back to school clothes for the children served by its programs. Please consider volunteering some of your time or resources to this event. Here are some ways to help in the coming weeks:

Volunteer Meeting—there will be a meeting on Tuesday, June 18 at 7:30pm in the parish hall
for all who are interested in volunteering for the picnic

Jewelry—Please donate your old/new/broken jewelry. We especially need rings. Please enclose your name and phone number with your donation so that anything valuable can be returned to you. To make a donation, please call Mary Anne Sulik at (203) 877-6573 for a pick up or drop off your jewelry on the back porch of the rectory before June 23rd.

White Elephant Items—We are collecting treasures to sell in White Elephant Booth (just about anything EXCEPT electrical items, cribs, car seats, large furniture, clothing, or sports/exercise equipment). Items may be dropped in front of the middle garage.

Fabric and Yarn—we are adding a new feature to the White Elephant Booth. If you have any leftover fabric or yarn from various projects, we will re-sell them to quilters, knitters, and crafters in search of a bargain. Please place your fabric and/or yarn in the designated plastic bin next to the center garage or in the labeled box on the rectory porch.

Thank you for all of your contributions!
