We had a highly successful Ten Thousand Villages Craft Sale this weekend! Click for pics!

This is the wrap-up from our organizers, our peacemaking committee:

First Presbyterian Church members can feel good about spreading their own good fortune and blessings of this life to families all around the world.

The unpacking of items Friday evening, November 17, for the Ten Thousand Villages Festival Sale was an enjoyable gathering of more than twenty of our own "villagers," and
the community effort continued non-stop for the next two days.

The sale was a great success thanks to many, many people getting out to work and shop for a good cause.

We brought in more than $6000 all of which will be sent to Ten Thousand Villages for payment to their artisans in struggling parts of the world.

Thank everyone and thank you Linda Sorrell for livening up the last hours of the sale with accordian music. 'Twas a great beginning for what
we hope will be a warm and wonderful holiday season for all.

My mother, of all people, sent me this:

With instructions on how to prepare it.

1. Cut out aluminum foil in desired shapes.
2. Arrange the turkey in the roasting pan, position the foil carefully
3. Roast according to your own recipe and serve.
4. Watch your guests' faces.

American Greetings reports that this is their most popular greeting card ever. So popular, that you have probably had it sent to you a hundred times! Click the pic to play and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
