THE TRASH AND TREASURES TEAM  -  IS PREPARING FOR HIATUS

Donations will be accepted for our next annual Fair on the Green beginning on March 7,
2019.

Thank you for your generous donations for the Oyster Festival, benefiting our Men's Club.
After we straighten our shelves and recycle our leftover treasures, the T&T team will
officially be on vacation. But don't forget about us! T&T is extending the challenge to reach a
new Fair on the Green goal!

Start filling those easy-to-lift- boxes with summer clothing and clean items in good working
condition. We will be ready to receive donations on March 7, 2019. Happy cleaning!

                                      HEAR YE, HEAR YE!

There will be a monster Trash and Treasures Tag Sale on Saturday, September 15th from
9:00 to 2:00.
Most items will be on sale for half price!
Be sure not to miss it!
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

By Joan Zauner
“When there are no words, a prayer shawl speaks volumes.”
Janet Bristow, co-founder of the prayer shawl ministry.            

I am so proud of what we have accomplished in our 10—almost 11 years.  Almost 900 shawls!!
They have not only gone to those near and dear, but, have gone all over the world!  So—I am proud of
these ladies and their strength.  

We invite you to join us in this mission.  Our next meeting is Thursday, September 13th at 7:00p.m. in
Wesley Center, 1st floor.  All you need to bring is you—we have yarn and needles.  We even give
lessons!  So please come.

If you know of someone who would like a shawl, please ask Deb Dubien 203-877-4959,
Phoebe Repetsky 203-874-8688, or Joan Zauner 203-283-5643.
