First Church held an impressive Fire Recovery Sale on Saturday, November 12 with tables and tables of treasures to buy, food to eat and music to be enjoyed. The current figures for the results came in at about $3600 with more to come.
The afternoon was also a wonderful opportunity for the First Church and wider community to gather. Many offered special words of support in the in the face of loss due to the fire. The church also took the opportunity to do a little housecleaning of it's own, clearing out some of the accumulation from underneath the Sanctuary.
Special thanks to Hanneke Van Dis for her excellent organizing of this event. And to all those who contributed time, food, objects and food.
