Season of Christmas Sales Continues
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.
