Tree and Wreath Tips

   
 

Dear St. Francis Community Organizations,

The past Holiday tree and wreath auctions have been a huge success thanks to the support we received from various organizations of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.  The trees from last year’s auction raised funds for the St. Francis St. Vincent de Paul Society.  Everyone enjoyed the fellowship and friendly competition as members from the different organizations came to view the trees and encourage the bidding.

 This year’s Holiday Tree & Wreath Auction and Holiday Bazaar will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2013.  We hope that your organization will again participate in the event by decorating and donating a tree and/or wreath.  As you know it is a fun team building activity which demonstrates each group’s creativity.

 This year we are requesting that all trees & wreaths be ready by Friday, October 25, 2013.  They will be “silent auctioned” to the highest bidders on October 26th during the annual Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar.  Any trees remaining will be donated to local charities.

 Attached you will find a document listing the specifications for the trees and/or wreath and some suggestions that will help you make your tree and/or wreath as memorable as the one from past auctions.  Also attached is an application for you to fill out and return.  Please return your application to Mary Lamanno via email to ladiesauxiliarybazaar@hotmail.com by October 18, 2013.

Proceeds from this year’s auction will again benefit the St. Francis St. Vincent de Paul Society.

 We hope that you will consider participating in the 2013 Holiday Tree &Wreath Auction.  Designing and decorating a tree and/or wreath is a tremendous amount of fun and fellowship that precedes the beginning of preparations for Christmas.  We will identify each tree and/or wreath with a sign stating the designing organization and its theme. 

 Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.

Thank you for your consideration.

Mary Lamanno
