St. Mary Presentation's "World Famous Yard Sale Dates Announced
St. Mary Presentation, Deer Park, will hold its eighth annual “World Famous Yard Sale” on Friday, September 16 and Saturday, September 17, 2016. Due to scheduling conflicts this is a new date.
What started out as a simple “backyard" sale at the home of a parishioner has evolved to a major fundraiser for this parish and a wonderful community event. Parishioners "and others” start to put aside items for sale throughout the year and some people even plan vacations so as not to miss working at this sale. In recent years, over 100 different individuals have participated: cleaning the barn, (the sale is held in the barn of the Deer Park Vet Clinic), assembling the saw horses and tables, picking up donations of furniture, tools and machinery, sorting, sizing, and pricing of clothes, pricing and merchandising the items on tables, hangers or under the two large canopies, directing parking, acting as security, cashiering, carrying out customers’ purchases, feeding those who are working at the sale and most importantly, kibitzing.
This event serves as a wonderful witness to our community: the cooperation and organization of the sale, the generosity of the donors who provide the wares, the generosity of the Vet Clinic for the use of their barn and grounds, and those in the community who are helped whether by purchasing needed items at a very reasonable cost, having an opportunity for socializing, or just enjoying an hour or two out of the house.
St. Mary Presentation constructed its new church building in 2010 and the net proceeds from these annual sales are used toward retiring the debt on that project.
If you like yard sale-ing it will certainly be worth your while to make the trip to the Deer Park Vet Clinic, 2915 E Crawford St, Deer Park, WA on September 16 or September 17.
St. Mary's Second Vacation Bible School a Success
Our second annual VBS - Cath-letics to place at the whole July 11 to the 15th. The theme was the Summer Olympics in Rio. The main focus was the 10 Commandments, the Beatitudes, and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. Through crafts, games, music and food (!) the children were introduced to the tenants of our faith. Annette and Jolene did a super job with the music and the adult volunteers had as much fun as the kids
