East Village Fair!

EAST VILLAGE FAIR is around the corner! Despite construction the Fair
will go on. We will not have a Flea Market this year, but we will have
everything else and more! Please join us for a fun-filled day of great food
(Howie Bernstein’s famous pulled pork and Ed Jackson’s fabulous soup!), sales
of produce, plants, cheese, jewelry, and baked goods. Come hear music (the
Arlex Five and Dime!), sip cider, win a wonderful prize in the raffle and play
kids’ games. Come one, come all and help us support our Church on this special
day: Saturday, September 29 from 11:00 to 4:00 (note the slight time change
this year). WE NEED YOU! Donations wanted for plants, baked goods, and
jewelry. Please sign up to help. We need all hands to pull this off and make this
a great day.

Sign Up to Volunteer! Read below for donation information.


Time to make the East Village Fair Jewelry Chain! Here’s how it works: First,
donate your unwanted or unworn jewelry to Follen. Second, dedicated
volunteers (We always need help) will polish and mark it. Next, everybody buys
jewelry for themselves and loved ones (a donation to Follen and a gift). Finally,
the chain is closed when you find yourself admiring your jewelry on your Follen
friend!! Giving links us all together. Please bring your jewelry to Sarah Garner
in the Church Office as soon as you are able but no later than Wednesday,
September 26 so that we have time to shine it up!

excluded ingredients that might affect allergies: nut-free, wheat-free, sugar-free,
