Reminder and more

Hey everybody! Reminder tonight, we are having a potluck/picnic/play at Seigel Soccer Park at 5:30 (or whenever you can get there). Just bring a dish to share, your picnic stuff (blanket, plates, utensils, and drink), and enjoy this beautiful day with us. Hope to see you there!!! :)

Also, I've decided to postpone the consignment sale until spring, but do a toy swap this fall. I'll tell you more about it soon. If you have ever participated in one, please share with me about it. In the meantime, hang onto those toys you are wanting to get rid of for another month or two.

Have a fantastic day!

August dates

Hey everybody! I had a wonderful trip and was so thankful Allison offered a few fun things while I was gone. I hope everybody is doing great and enjoying their summer. Those that had kids start school yesterday, hope that went well. I have some dates for you to mark on your calendar, and a couple questions too.

First, a few of us had thought about the FUMC playgroup hosting a childrens' consignment sale at church. The $$ we raise would go do speakers, crafts, a family in need, etc. We need to choose a date. I was thinking a Saturday morning at church from 8-11 a.m. The gym would be open from 7-noon to set up and take down. We thought maybe asking a flat rate, so we don't have to deal with all the transactions or getting $$ from people afterwards. A flat $10 to have a booth set up. Share with me your thoughts please. What date seems to work with you guys? Oct. 17th or November sometime? We need to advertise in the church bulletin and newsletter. We'll need help maybe putting a playgroup table together (?), sharing about playgroup. I'm sure there is more too. So, I will need help. Please tell me if you want to help or any thoughts on the consignent sale.

Ok, play dates! :)
