Community Yard Sale Opportunity: St. Joachim’s Hall is a registered multi-vendor site in the 70-Mile Yard Sale on Saturday, September 23. This is a great opportunity to sell some of those items you no longer need or want. You can rent tables from the St. Joachim’s CWL for $10 each by contacting Marie Curran (651-2342). Being advertised as a multi-vendor site will be sure to bring a good crowd of buyers. Reserve your table today!
St. Joachim's CWL is very excited to have the Parish Hall designated as a multi-vendor site for the 70-Mile Yard Sale. The CWL is asking for the parish’s support with the bake sale portion of the yard sale. Any donations of baked goods from parish members would be greatly appreciated. Such items as cookies, squares, fudge, preserves, biscuits, muffins, rolls, etc. always make for great bake sale items. The Hall will be open on Friday, September 22, 6:00-9:00pm for anyone to drop off baked goods or they can be dropped off Saturday, September 23 before 8:00am. The CWL will look after packaging and pricing food items to be sold individually or in packages. So, you can just drop off your food items and we will look after putting them into bags or on trays to be sold. The money raised from the bake sale will help the CWL in supporting parish needs and activities in the future. We thank you in advance for your support.
