Whitehall Bazaar Set for October 25 - Funds Benefit Those in our Community

Whitehall United Methodist Church will host their 2014 Bazaar on Saturday, October 25th. Doors open for shopping at 8 o’clock sharp and will remain open until 1 in the afternoon. Workers will begin serving breakfast in the Fellowship Hall prior to the bazaar and will continue serving until 10. Come enjoy a bountiful meal of the tastiest breakfast around for $7. In honor of our Veterans, they may enjoy their meal for half price. Children discounts also apply. Pancakes, biscuits, sausage and tomato gravy, bacon, grits, and much more - All your favorites will be there!

 The craft rooms are packed with crosses, tables, recycled distressed furniture, pottery, school desk, benches, stools, chalk and bulletin boards, wreaths, swags, notecards, and more. Find your Thanksgiving casseroles in the bake room while being tempted with the many cakes, breads, pies, candies, jellies, and jams. Taste test new dips mixes which make great teacher gifts. 

 Don’t miss out on bidding on the silent auction items. Bidding ends at 12:30 sharp. Bargains galore will be found in the White Elephant room where you name the price. 

 Once you recover from the stuffing at breakfast, venture back for a bowl, pint, quart, or gallon of soup beginning at 10:30. Served with cornbread or crackers and a tall glass of tea a bowl is $4.00. Larger containers are even a better deal.

Parking is no problem as golf carts will be in the lot to drop you at the door. Don’t forget about our elevator located near the steps to assist on trips to the Fellowship Hall.

The monies raised from the bazaar are split evenly between two funds: missions and building improvements. Throughout the year we have been blessed to help many families in our community. Heaters and a tank of propane were purchased for needy homes. Graduation fees were paid for a child who did not have the funds required to march with his class. Aiding with travel and household expenses, Whitehall mission fund helped many who have been diagnosed with cancer or other illnesses. We have helped sponsor a youth in a neighboring county on his summer mission trip. 

 Once the tornado struck our county on April 28th we were blessed to have the funds to buy backpacks and school uniforms for affected students at Fair Elementary. As the reconstruction phase began we have provided funds for septic tanks and water lines.
