Volunteers are needed to help with the Flea Market. If you are an early riser, please come at 6:45 to assist the vendors in finding their spaces for the day. We will need baked goods to sell, (cookies,bars, pies, etc.) for the Baked Goods table, headed by Ann Lang and Donna Sheldon. Help is needed during the sale to keep the church grounds clean-to walk around and pick up litter, etc., as well as assistance in cleaning the field after 3:00 when the vendors are gone. Your help will be very much appreciated. There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board across from the kitchen.
