Can You Help?
A huge part of our Fall Festival each year is our BBQ LUNCH. United Methodist Men we need you to help serve on our BBQ team.

Just leave them in the small dining room by the MAC kitchen!
CRAFTERS ROW: CRAFTERS NEEDED! Anyone needing tables for their craft items just let us know. We will again be displaying similar items together to save on tables and space. If there is something you LOVE to make, bring it! You don’t have to make 50 to be helpful. PLEASE include a recommended selling price. … For questions contact Tricia Wallace or Jan Boland.
CRAFT DEMONSTRATIONS: We would like to have artists and crafters demonstrating their skills during the Festival.
