|A GREAT BIG 2013 Fair on the Green THANK YOU!!!
"It makes me really glad to know that I can depend on you." 2 Corinthians 7:16 (CEV)
I woke on Friday morning to a rainy, dreary day.
"Please keep us safe and positive," I began to pray.
Then I arrived at Mary Taylor where folks were bustling about.
My prayer had been answered; I had no doubt.
For tho sodden and cold, smiles and good spirits abounded galore.
Now we'd just wait for tomorrow to see what the Lord had in store.
Saturday dawned with a sparkling blue sky,
And with a multitude of helpful volunteers, the day just flew by.
The vendors all praised our supportive hospitality crew,
And off the tables Treasures, baked items, plants and food flew.
Throughout this year as Fair Chair I have certainly felt blessed
For our Mary Taylor Saints are most definitely the BEST!!!
Although I'm surely no Maya Angelou, I do want to extend my heartfelt thanks to each and every one who made our Fair on the Green a success. Whether you were a
cheerful, dedicated volunteer, made a donation of one sort or another, or came to support our Church and vendors, you made a
valuable contribution, and our Church is the richer for it; not just our General Fund, but in mind and spirit, as well. THANK YOU!!!
Despite a rainy Friday and our vendor attendance only about two-thirds of what it's been in the past, we were able to present a check for $11,000 to Pastor Brian for our
General Fund. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow."
With a grateful heart,
Chair of Operations, Fair on the Green
| FAIR ON THE GREEN -
June 6 & 7, 2014
Have you heard the GREAT NEWS? Edie Reichard and Christine Volgmuth have come on board as Assistant Co-chairs of Operations for the Fair on the Green. Actually,
the Chair of Operations position has been redefined. It is now only a three year commitment. The first year is an apprentice year when the future Chair will serve as an
Assistant Chair and have the opportunity to "learn the ropes" from the Chair of Operations. The Assistant Chair then becomes the COO and takes on the leadership of
the Fair during the second year. Finally during the third year, the COO teaches a new Assistant.
If you served on the Fair on the Green Committee for the 2013 Fair, Edie or Christine will be calling you to verify your willingness to continue your service in 2014. If you are
new to Mary Taylor, or new to our Fair, and would like to serve on our 2014 Fair Committee, please contact Edie at email@example.com, Christine at
firstname.lastname@example.org, or me, email@example.com.
Our first meeting will be held February 2, 2014.
Are you planning to attend a craft or fine arts fair this fall and are willing to advertise our Fair on the Green? Please contact our Publicity Chair, Tara Volgmuth at
firstname.lastname@example.org or Vendor Rep, Susan O'Shea at email@example.com for flyers to hand out to perspective vendors. Our largest profit comes from our vendors,
so it's really important to spread the word.
Blessings and thanks, Eileen Doyle, Chair of Operations
