Well, it is not exactly tyme for our annual Olde Tyme Christmas Bazaar at St. Andrew’s. The date was actually set for Saturday, November 7, 2020.

As you know, our Christmas Bazaar is unique, because it allows us to interact so closely
together, gathering and sorting many items for sale, like Jewellery and those treasures in the New-to-You Venue, as well as joining with one another to enjoy the delights of Santa’s Kitchen, and much more. The Christmas decorations provide a festive setting to welcome the community into our church. However, everyone’s safety is of prime importance. Holding the Bazaar in the usual manner, with potentially 250 people in the church for several hours, cannot be accomplished this year.

After much consideration and consultation, and with Santa’s consent, the Convenors have concluded that a few Virtual Holiday Markets, with a more selective list of offerings, are possible.

The purpose of this special email, is to invite you to consider ordering some your favourite foods from Santa’s Kitchen, for Thanksgiving, or to freeze for use over the coming months, as well as purchase some unique hand-crafted offerings from our Craft Table, at our Thanksgiving Market.

Effective today, you can place an order by email to standrewsmarkets@bell.net, or by phoning Roseanne at 905-294-2386. Your order can be picked up in the church parking lot on Thursday, October 8th, or Friday, October 9th, from 10 AM to 1 PM, and from 4 PM to 6 PM. Click on the link, to see the menu of offerings and prices. If picking up is not convenient, we have volunteers to help with deliveries.

Payment is a problem. We need to minimize the handling of cash. Prepayment by Interac e-transfer is preferred to: standrewsmarkets@bell.net (no password required).  Cash payment can be made at time of pickup.

For those interested in seeing the offerings from our Craft Table, a display will be available in the church on Wednesday, September 30th from 2 PM to 4 PM, and on Saturday, October 3rd, from 10 AM to Noon. Covid risk mitigation procedures will be in effect.

Please do not hesitate to share this email and attachments, with your friends and neighbours. As always, your participation is critical to the success of this annual Outreach opportunity in the life of our Church.

Faithfully yours,
Roseanne Dumitru (Convener).
