A welcoming, open spiritual community where You're Welcome Just As You are.
The Christmas Bazaar was, once again, a great success in 2019 thanks to everyone who volunteered to help. Thanks to all of you!!
The Bazaar is a large project and CWF's main fundraiser each year. It has made it possible for us to be able to sponsor women's events and assist the church with other projects.
This year was difficult as we lost several of our chairmen so the rest of us had to step up and do double duty. I think there are many people who are qualified to do these jobs. There are many of us who have done them and are willing to work beside and help others learn what we do. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have a bazaar in the future if people do not volunteer to take some of these positions. There are many, but if we have a full team of volunteers, it is easy for each of us. We have faithful vendors who have returned year after year and we need to let them know by March if we will be continuing with the bazaar. They need to have an opportunity to find other bazaars to participate in if we do not have ours.
We have been visiting other bazaars to see how they are doing and if they are still a successful fundraising method. We have seen good participation, 50/50 younger and older vendors and shoppers. We are one of the only bazaars that we found served a lunch. Greeters and door prizes were at several bazaars. Our conclusion is that it is still a successful way to raise funds.
At the present time the positions that are in need of being filled are:
Chairman Lunch Chairman
Publicity Chairman Vendor Chairman
Room set up/take-down Greeters
Large sign placement Door Prizes
We are happy to assist any chairman with their first year. We will have job descriptions for each position for those interested. We hope and pray that you will consider stepping up and filling some of these positions.
Thank you, Lynn Koenig
