Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The women of the Christ Church Guild and ACW, have been hard at work pre­par­ing for their an­nual Christ­mas Sale and Lun­cheon to be held this Satur­day, Novem­ber 12th. Up­stairs, the Hall will be dec­o­rated for the sea­son and as al­ways, there will be a lovely as­sort­ment of sand­wiches and de­li­cious squares to choose from. Down­stairs, there will be sale ta­bles of­fer­ing Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and crafts, hand-knit­ted items, Christ­mas quilted items, jew­elry, home-made fudge and jel­lies and a wide as­sort­ment of home-bak­ing. There is sure to be some­thing to please ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially with all the tan­ta­liz­ing items on the baked goods ta­ble!

The Christ Church Guild and ACW mem­bers and friends, raise money with this event and other yearly ac­tiv­i­ties, to help sev­eral lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the CAB Rediker Christ­mas bas­kets, Sun­ny­side milk pro­gram, Ver­mont Dis­as­ter re­lief and the Len­noxville and District Women’s Cen­tre; as well as or­ga­ni­za­tions abroad such as the Chris­tian Blind Mis­sion, World Vi­sion child spon­sor­ship, and African Famine re­lief. Also at Christ­mas time, mem­bers make up Christ­mas cookie plates for shut-ins and put to­gether Christ­mas boxes for sailor’s who are at port in Que­bec, and Christ­mas boxes for chil­dren as part of Sa­mar­i­tan’s Purse.

The Christ­mas Sale and Lun­cheon will take place be­tween 11:00 am and 1:30 pm at the Christ Church Hall on Duf­ferin Street in Stanstead.

The Christ Church Guild’s Thrift Shop will be open for the last time, in 2011, on Novem­ber 26th from 9:00 to 11:00 am. Please note that be­cause of in­sur­ance reg­u­la­tions, the Thrift Shop can no longer ac­cept do­na­tions of elec­tri­cal items.
