"Bazaar or No Bazaar" for 2020 ...

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

                                    Raffle Chairman


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
