Time and Talent Silent Auction – Saturday, September 21st, 2019 – 7:00 pm – Sanctuary
Step 1: Think of a talent to share  Cooking class; tray of cookies; sewing skills; afternoon road trip; host an afternoon tea’ shovel snow; teach a dance; teach a craft; card making; knitting/crocheting; clean cupboards; help someone move; bake buns or bread; cake decorating/making; homemade jam; host a dinner; take someone out for lunch or dinner; give someone a ride to doctor’s appointment(s);
(we’ve all got something we enjoy – that others avoid / or might enjoy too)
Step 2: Tell Allison or Carla what you’d like to offer to do for someone else.
Step 3:  Outbid your neighbour on the items that will save you stress, help you out, or just give you some enjoyment with the added bonus of helping to support the ministry of St Paul’s and getting to know each other just a little better in the process.
