Rainy Day

And dry ones on our altar.

Silent Auction and Old Home Day Info

Info from Marylee:

Plans are already underway for St. Stephen's participation in Pittsfield's Old Home Day on July 18th. At this event we will be holding a silent auction as an important part of our festivities. This year's theme will be "In the Good Old Summertime". So while you are hunting for yard sale treasures, if you should uncover a really wonderful treasure.....a gift that wasn't quite right for you, new sporting goods, summertime things....we would love to have them for the silent auction. Perhaps you know of a business that might donate a gift certificate....We already have a gourmet picnic basket and those beautiful handmade pottery birdbaths by Ursula Allen, AND I have even heard that Denise is trying to secure the donation of some Red Sox tickets!

If you have questions about silent auction items please email or call me. As these challenging economic times continue to impact more and more of our friends and neighbors, our fundraising efforts at St. Stephen's become more and more important.
