Thankyou to Workers & Helpers
You set up the Hall, you donated 2½" strips of fabric and magazines, you made delicious slices and yummy soup, you helped in the Kitchen, you manned the Entry table, you sold raffle tickets and 'Guess the Number of Strips' numbers, you held up quilts for Show & Tell, you packed up and cleaned up when the party was over.
I bet you had sore feet Saturday night - but I bet you were happy it had been such a successful day!
Did you take any on the day that you'd be happy to share? I only managed to take the one above (a pathetic effort!) and more would be nice.
