The Hollyberry Bazaar and Tea was held on a rainy November 3 and despite the weather people came, stayed for lunch and did lots of early Christmas shopping! I extend a sincere thank you to all who supported the bazaar by offering to co-ordinate an area, baking, preserving, gathering greens, decorating, serving tea, working the kitchen and the endless other jobs often done behind the scenes! This is a true community building activity for us and presents a warm welcome to the community who visits. Well done!
Financially we surpassed our goal of $5,000 with a preliminary total of $6,359.95. This includes the Quilt Draw yield of $ $677.50.
Thanks to everyone, wen
QUILT RAFFLE DRAW at Hollyberry Bazaar: The winners of the draws made November 3 were:
Capitol Theatre tickets – Dick Symonds
Gift Basket – Joyce Harding, Belleville (related to Carol Poste)
Bonus Draw – afghan – Deborah Henderson
***Sharon Buck was drawn as the winner of the quilt but we have been unable to contact her as the number listed on her ticket is ‘not in service’. We have been searching for Sharon and this will be the last attempt to find someone who knows her. Please contact Gwen (905-885-8798) if you have any information. Another draw will be made next week if Sharon is not located.
Thanks to the St. Mark’s Quilters for crafting an exceptional quilt, ‘Log Cabin in the Woods’. The Capitol Theatre generously donated the tickets for our draw and Pat Symonds’s sister gifted us with 3 afghans, one went to the bonus draw.
