The United Methodist Women are getting everything ready for their annual Rummage and Bake Sale on Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8.
UMW welcomes donations of your useable hand-me-downs, your castoffs, your down-sizing of your closet and kitchen items, books, holiday decorations, and so on. UMW welcomes all the “stuff” in the garage and the store room and even the boat shed – once that is cleaned out and items cleaned up. So encourage everyone in your household to clean those closets, straighten those drawers, eliminate the extra tools and fishing lures… you get the picture. Donations will be accepted the first week of March beginning on Monday, March 3 at 10 a.m. thru noon, Thursday, March 6. UMW members will be on hand to accept and price your donations.
A big portion of this fun event is the Bake Sale. Methodist women (and some men) are known far and wide for their outstanding prowess in the kitchen. Cakes, pies, breads, cookies, and candy will be available for purchase. These items make perfect gifts for someone special, a terrific dessert for dinner, and they usually can be frozen for a last minute dessert for 2nd Sunday. But plan to come early as the bake sale table is the busiest table on Friday morning and the best goodies go fast.
For any FUMC member considering bringing food goodies, we offer these suggestions:
All baked goods should be brought to the workday on Thursday, March 6.
Bakers/ Candy makers are encouraged to list a price for their treats as they are aware of the total cost of the ingredients.
Bakers are encouraged to package a half-dozen cookies in ziplock baggies, if possible.
Candies and small loaves of cakes or breads can also be donated as well as full size cakes and loaves of quick breads.
Anything portable and yummy, and not requiring refrigeration is WELCOME!!
Questions? Check with Jean Ann Whittington or Shirley Bynum, co-chairs of the Bake Sale portion.
