Attention: Crafters

The Bazaar committee is getting a head start in forming a craft group for the upcoming Holiday Bazaar in November. Bonnie Bline, who this past year joined St. Anthony Parish, has volunteered to chair the committee. She would like to meet with any interested crafters and begin to discuss ideas for craft items to make and sell at the bazaar. Ideally, Bonnie would like to have two groups—one on site at St. Anthony and/or Presentation and one group of crafters who may choose to do crafts at home. We know there are many talented individuals in our Parish that could assist us in getting this project underway. Kindly share your talents with us by calling Bonnie Bline at 401 743-4195 or Maryann Pallotta in the Religious Education Office, 353-5215, for more information.
