Francis Community Organizations,
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.
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
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.
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
firstname.lastname@example.org by October 18, 2013.
