The Annual Church Dinner is Saturday, November 2. Preparations have begun with the canvassing of members and friends of the church for donations of food items and cash contributions to be used in securing meats and other supplies for food preparation. The Canvassing Team coordinated by Gaylea Goodbar has begun the task of securing contributions. If you have not been contacted please let Gaylea know. Every gift is needed, welcomed, and considered a blessing!
Some notes from Tammy about the dinner, originally published in the News Gazette in 2017:
"The arrival of fall means it's annual dinner season for Collierstown Presbyterian Church. On Saturday, November 2, church members and friends will serve the crowd pleasing, home cooked means from 11am to 7pm.
The annual dinner debuted November 5-6, 1925, as the Chrysanthemum Show in the Collierstown graded school house, on the site of today's Collierstown Baptist Church. All these years later, the donner continues to be the place where old friends meet, and new friends break bread together . . . in addition to the human connection, the dinner provides the resources supporting the mission work of Presbyterian Women."
It’s now officially annual dinnertime and preparations are well on their way. Between now and November 2nd, please consider how you can participate before and during the dinner. Presbyterian Women voted to equally split the bazaar room proceeds from this year between the Jamie Martin Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes of Rockbridge County. Both of these are very near and dear to our hearts so please dig deep in your bag of talents and see what you can come up with to donate for these two very worthy recipients.
We are looking for homemade baked goods (bread, rolls, pies, cookies, etc), canned goods (soups, chili, etc), handcrafted items whether it be woodwork, knitting, crochet, etc. There are too many talents in our church community to list so please let’s put all those talents to good use and pack the Bazaar Room with wonderful goodies for this year.
The annual dinner also has its own Facebook page! Please like and share our event page to get the word out. You can find it by typing Collierstown Presbyterian Church Annual Dinner in the Facebook search engine.
Please also consider making a monetary donation to our Bazaar Room. Last year we tried something different and it worked out very well. We had a few congregation members sponsor certain items; i.e. bushels of apples, hoop cheese, bagged candies, and applebutter. Please consider being a monetary sponsor for these items. Please note that monetary donations are tax deductible and will be included in your yearly church donation letters. These items need to be ordered, so time is of the essence! If you can donate today, we would appreciate it as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance for your support of the Bazaar Room
