Calling All Hands!
Getting Ready To
One of the traditions at Saint Luke’s is the annual Rummage Sale, set this year for Saturday, Oct. 8, 10a.m. to 4p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 9, 12 noon to 3p.m. It is one of the major fundraisers that help support church programs while giving the local community the opportunity to purchase needed and useful items at reasonable prices. To quote Boutique Co-Department Head LouiseGuinther, " If that isn’t enough reason to get involved, it’s also a lot of fun, for shoppers and workers alike – a great chance to rub elbows with your fellow parishioners in a good cause and welcome non-parishioners into our hallowed halls. At the end, it becomes a form of pure outreach when we donate the leftover treasures to a worthy charity!"
WE NEED LOTS OF PEOPLE YES, THAT MEANS YOU!
No experience required. Co-Chairs Mickey Zacarias & Anne Su can be contacted at:

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
TRACK THE RUMMAGE PROCEEDS:
Karen Van Westering is our event treasurer again this year. Would you like assist her in keeping track of the rummage proceeds all through the sale and counting it up when it’s done? If so, please sign up or contact Mickey or Anne directly.
Volunteers are needed to help out on weekends between Saturday, September 10 and Saturday, October 1. We will be receiving items on
Saturdays from 10a.m. to 12noon and
Sundays following the 10:30 service, usually until 1:00 p.m. All you have to do is help place the donations onstage, pass out receipts and tag bags.
SPREADING THE WORD:
Flyers will be available in the parish hall, one to
solicit contributions, another to advertise the event. Take a few flyers home with you and give them out to friends and neighbors. Don't forget to visit your favorite dry cleaners. They may have cleaned clothing that was abandoned over six months ago that they want to donate.
We need help hauling tables and clothing racks upstairs and distributing clothing on set-up days and putting things back in order at the end of the sale. Packers are also needed to fill boxes so they'll be ready for pick-up when the local charities drivers arrive.
SORTING AND PRICING:
Daytime and evening sorting sessions are planned for the two weeks before the sale. We want to make our displays attractive with usable items only. Every donated hour is appreciated!
Jean Tessier will need contributions of cookies, cakes, and especially homemade treats during the sales weekend. Contact Jean for more information on what is needed. Note: Please identify your item and include a listing of the ingredients.
DEPARTMENT HEADS/SALES STAFF:
A couple of departments need leaders, while others need more helping hands during sale days. We also need floaters to relieve our workers from time to time so that they can go to the Snack Bar or shop themselves!
