Hello Confirmation Families!!

We have a Service Hour Opportunity for your Confirmation Students that would fulfill some of the Parish Hours required and they would have a lot of fun doing it!!  We did stop in at the kids last Confirmation Class and talk to them about this.

The Merry Mall is on Saturday, November 8th from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, attached is a flyer on the Event.  We will have a Kids Area, Bingo, Food, Silent Auction, Tickets, Attic Treasures, Set Up and Clean Up.  We are looking for volunteers to help us out with areas that are in need at different times of the day depending on what area is the busiest.

If you could respond to me, Laura Ogren, at ljogren@aol.com with the times listed below that your child could work we would appreciate it .  You are more than welcome to sign up for more than one time slot.  We are thinking it would be nice to have 3-5 volunteers for each shift and it will be first come, first serve.  The shift times are:

Friday night, November 7th – 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm – Set Up

Saturday, November 8th – 10:00 am to 12:00 pm; 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm; and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

We look forward to the students working with us that day and enjoying our Parish Event!

Thank you,

Laura Ogren & Karen Bechtold (CCW Co-Chairs)
