No previous experience is required.

Starshine is Friday, December 7th at the County Courtyard/FBC. FBC will take advantage of this opportunity for fund raising.
We are looking for donations for the baskets we will be selling, a list of baskets and a box for the donations will be in the sanctuary. Monetary donations are always welcome and can be given to Cindy Ovens to help defray costs. All items need to be at the church by Sunday, December 2nd so we have time to get the baskets together.
Ethel Clancy will again be making her delicious egg rolls and we will be selling sodas, water and hot cocoa as well.
This year we are asking for baked goods and Sheryl Robbins will be making her peanut butter fudge. Baked goods should be individually packaged for selling. Any questions regarding the baked goods, call Cathy MacDougall at 531-8390 anytime between 9 am and 8 pm. We have added pies to our bake sale, they will be single serving pies. Let Cathy know if you'd like to help bake pies.
