The Women’s Guild of Holy Family parish is holding a fundraising Plant Sale/Strawberry Festival on Saturday, June 2, from 9am-2pm. The plants include all types: flowers, herbs, veggies, etc., either singly or in planters. There will also be a General Store selling preserves, pies, cookies & goodies (including some luscious-sounding Italian specialties), as well as strawberry shortcake. Specially made greeting cards with beautiful photos of Gloucester will also be on sale
The event will be held on the Rectory lawn at 60 Prospect Street in Gloucester (or in the Hall next door under St. Ann’s Church if it rains).
Some photos of the plants being prepared:
Two families have lost there home due to a major fire on Sunday, in Rockport. Three years ago my family also lost there home to a devasting fire.
People were so kind and thoughtful so it is my turn to give back and to show there is renewal after such a loss.
So on December 18th from 10-4 at my home at 11 Stockholm avenue in Rockport..I am going to bake 100’s and 100’s of holiday cookies.
They will be for sale by donations only so hopefully we can give a big chunck of change to these families the week before XMAs.
This will be my third BAKING FOR GOOD bakesale. the first one I had raised $1300.00 for Haitan relief after the earthquake..the second one raised $2400.00 for a friend who was dying of Cancer..with a little butter and sugar we can change the world or at least our tiny corner.
Next Saturday, April 24th there will be a spring yard sale starting at 8:00 a.m. to benefit Boy Scout Troop 112 in the parking lot of Smokin’ Jims &
Coveted Yarn, East Main St. The funds raised from the yard sale help support the troops activities and trips.
