Get a jump on your holiday shopping ! Congregational UCC will host a Ten Thousand Villages fair trade marketplace in our Fellowship Hall.
Saturday, November 25 from 10 AM to 4 PM
Sunday, November 26 from Noon to 3:30 PM
We are well into the autumn season, so it is definitely time to flag your calendars for this event. Help us spread the word amongst families, friends, co-workers and neighbors about the exponential power of the 10,000 Villages international program to move skilled artisans into the fair-trade marketplace. So many uniquely fashioned items cleverly utilize recycled and sustainable materials, so in our small way, we are helping to "green up" our environment while enabling artisans to earn a living wage.
If you would like to volunteer for one of the sale days for a two-or-three-hour time block, watch for the sign-up sheet soon to be posted. We definitely need strong backs to help unload the truck and unpack boxes on Friday starting at 1:00 p.m. Then the stock must be re-boxed and re-loaded on the truck Sunday afternoon starting at 4:00 p.m. Please consider helping, and ask all your friends to come shop!
