So many great items in the silent auction

A complete list of silent auction items is available online at Be sure to stop by the cashier's table and pick up your bid number for this year's silent auction. Watch the closing times for each table carefully so you don’t miss out on your treasure!

Don't shop hungry!

Volunteer Opportunities — Earn Service Points

There is a critical need for adult and youth volunteers to work shifts for Friday and Saturday, November 10–11. Strong bodies are needed to help set up on Friday and tear down on Saturday. We will also need people with pick-up trucks at the end of the bazaar to transport unsold Attic items to local donation centers. School students and families can earn service hours! To volunteer please contact Karen Hand or use the bazaar Sign Up Genius,

Make a Donation to the Attic or Country Kitchen

Please bring PRICED Attic donations (no less than 25-cents) to the hall by the school office, Door 4, or baked goodies to the school gym, Door 2, after 3:30 PM on Friday, November 10. Your donation will be a huge help in the Bazaar reaching its fundraising goals.

Support These Worthy Causes

Proceeds from this year’s bazaar will benefit Calvary School classroom security hardware to prevent unauthorized entry during class, replacement of sanctuary carpeting, and support for the Lutheran Child & Family Services Pando Program which offers one-bedroom apartments to serve people ages 18–24, with a special focus on those aging out of the child welfare/foster care system (supportive services included).
