Garage Sale

People arrived early to get great deals at the garage sale. 

Silent Auction

Opportunity Quilt

A big shout out to the amazing teachers and many wonderful volunteers who made our July Fair such a success! Special thanks to Debbie Neilsen who managed the big task of securing all the vendors, which included tons of set-up and take-down, tax management, and a million little details; Kim McCloskey who coordinated all of our classes, teachers and class packets; and Sharon Wright who somehow got inveigled into spearheading the garage sale. Such a huge job! We couldn’t have done it without all of you!
