The Annual Downtowner’s Street Fair is September 15 & 16. Our kitchen will smell great,
people will swarm to our booth or our kitchen to trade money for a container of rice pudding,
and we will have about 100 tired but happy volunteers resting on September 18! We set up
the booth on September 14; make, deliver, sell, and clean up on September 15 & 16; sell
extra rice pudding between services on September 18.
Our prices haven’t raised since 2002 – who else can say the same! We expect to donate half
of the profits to various missions, the other half to technology and other unfunded or
underfunded needs within Faith.
We need 100+ volunteers to make this a successful weekend – cool weather would help
also (but no rain like last year!). Families can volunteer together for a shift in the booth;
strong people can assist with setting up and taking down the booth; people over 16 and
under 100 can help with making the pudding, beating the eggs, doing the dishes in the
kitchen; teams of two can deliver the rice pudding from the kitchen to the booth; two or more
to handle the Sunday sales. A Sign-up board will be placed in the Gathering Place August 1.
August 2 and 6 will be our annual bribe of fresh, hot, rice pudding to get volunteers to sign
up for a specific shift or two. If you have any questions before then, please contact Diane at
222-0160 or Kim at 223-2236.
Remember, you can also come to the kitchen at Faith on September 15 and/or 16 to buy
