Crafts for the Christmas Bazaar

From Wednesday, July 11th and continuing until October 17th, ECW will have craft workshops every Wednesday in the Old Wye Parish Hall from 10:00 AM to Noon, to work on handmade items for the ECW Christmas Bazaar in November. Bring whatever projects you may already have started for the Bazaar, show us a new craft idea, or just work on projects underway. It’s fun, easy and a wonderful opportunity for convivial conversation! Bring a bag lunch to eat after we’re finished.

Donations to the Christmas Bazaar

The ECW very much appreciates the donations that have been made for the Bazaar. We rely on your “treasures” to help make the Bazaar a huge success! Our storage space, however, is filling up and we ask that you hold onto your donations until at least September. If that is not possible, please contact Betsy Johnston at 410–490–8062.

Shell trees for the Christmas Bazaar

Gloria Griffith has requested help gathering mussel shells for the trees she makes for the Christmas Bazaar. She will be happy to pick them up. The empty shells do not need to be cleaned and can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer to keep them fresh. For more information, give Gloria a call at 410–490–4320.

Christmas Bazaar’s Sweet & Savory Shoppe

Karen Culotta has a need for 1/2 pint or pint canning jars to preserve her delicious pickles for the Bazaar. Bring them to church or drop them by the parish office. If anyone has fruit trees or knows of some berry patches needing picking, and/or can donate the fruit for jams or jellies, please let her know. Homemade jams and jellies are popular sellers at The Bazaar.

Jewelry Boxes for the Bazaar

Susie Kirchner is requesting cardboard jewelry boxes for the bazaar. She finds that it helps boost her sales when items are offered in a gift box.

Hi Everyone!

We have just received our service dates for dinners and night watch at Our Haven Shelter, at KIUMC for this winter’s season. The shelter will be open from October 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019. We will be needing volunteers to serve on the following dates:

Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 and Saturday, Nov. 24. 2018
Friday, Jan. 25, 2019 and Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019
Saturday, Mar. 30, 2019 Sunday, Mar. 31, 2019

We are grateful to Jean Peterson for organizing and coordinating this program for the past few years. She has given her time and talent to a very important program which offers an excellent opportunity for us to serve to our community members in their time of need. This is a great way for us to share our many blessings.


Haven Ministries is collecting children’s winter coats and winter items such as hats, gloves, scarves, mittens etc. for Make A Difference Day in November.

The winter items can be gently used or new. No adult winter coats, please. Krista will collect and store the winter coats until the event. Please let me know if you have any to give and I will pick them up at either church.

Thank you, Rick Culotta wyeheaven@aol.com or 410–829–3129.
