Fall Festival, October 10, 2017
WELCA would like to thank everyone for once again making our Fall Festival a success. We had delicious chili, many wonderful choices at the bakery, beautiful baskets and a great variety of crafts. Many people found treasures at the Second Hand Rose booth-we saw lots of bags go out the door from there. Your donations were all appreciated and put to good use.
We want to thank the Strong Women classes for their basket donations. Margaret Haak, the group leader, mentioned to each class that the church could use empty baskets for our raffle. So, each class decided to fill and donate a basket – or 2 – for the raffle. They bought tickets to try to win baskets as well.
Thank you to everyone for all of your generous help. We could not do this without you, and now we are able to make many donations to our church, Fond du Lac, and worldwide charities. We will count and report the earnings as soon as possible.
Thank you ,
Your WELCA Board
Marion, Audrey, Lu, Martie and Caryl
Later a WELCA financial report will be prepared to show how the proceeds or the profits of the Fall Festival will be distributed. We support ministries at Immanuel-Trinity, in the Fond du Lac community and around the world. Many thanks to the people who supported this event.
