IT’S TIME FOR OUR 49TH ANNUAL FALL FESTIVAL AND BRUNSWICK STEW

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2019.

AS ALWAYS, WE CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

Brunswick Stew . . . We will be cooking the chickens outside the church in propane cookers.  To ensure all chickens cook at about the same doneness, we would like to have them all be about the same size.  We will be purchasing the chickens (approximately 110) this year.  We are asking that you make a donation (please make check out to GBC Ways & Means) in the amount you would normally spend on chickens to defray this cost.  We will

also need homemade pies and cakes to serve with our lunch.

Workers . . . Thursday, November 7, we will debone chickens beginning at approximately 10 AM.  Friday, November 8, we will start peeling potatoes and onions at 9 AM.  Bring your knife and a cutting board.  We need lots of volunteers for both

of these tasks.

Bazaar . . . We need lots of handmade crafts, crocheting, jewelry, knitting, needlework, sewing, etc.  Christmas tree ornaments are always a high selling item.  We also need lots of homemade goodies, cakes, pies, bread, cookies, candy, pickles, jelly, jams, etc. Please let us know the selling price of your items.  Please have all your items at the church as early in the week as possible, so we can judge how many tables, etc., that we need.  No items will be accepted on the

day of the bazaar.

DUE TO LIMITED SPACE, WE WILL NOT HAVE A “WHITE ELEPHANT” ROOM THIS YEAR.

If you have any questions, please contact Tim Baker or Rene Hounshell or the church office (832-2075).
