On Friday December 11 the Women’s Center held its annual Arts and Crafts Sale. Cold weather helped to facilitate the sale of all socks, hats and scarves. We welcome items for the sale throughout the year, so if anyone overlooked the date this time, save your stuff, or make new stuff for the sale next year! There were many beautiful decorative items, pictures, photographs and jewelry. Our sale netted around $1,200, a welcome addition to our funds. We are grateful to all who contributed and all who came to the sale and bought gifts for themselves or others. Carolyn Cardwell Copenhefer of our library staff deserves special mention for helping us out year after year; this year some very pretty Fair Isle hats by her hand graced our tables. All volunteers who helped with the set-up and the take-down, a tedious and time consuming job, receive our grateful thanks. Sherry Arconti of the Academic Support Services Staff went out of her way to help as did many others. All of you, who check out this blog, keep our sale in mind. It is always near the end of classes on the day that the Seminary has its “Lessons and Carols” service, another good reason to come our way. Our items are exceptionally pretty and well made and we price everything slightly lower than one would pay commercially.
This event was the last occasion for which our event-planner Marie McCanless helped to make it all happen. We say farewell to Marie with our gratitude for her work in the Center and with blessings on her future endeavors.
