Projects Galore

Next Saturday is a giant fundraiser/festival at Lucas’s school, Sacramento Waldorf School. It is the annual Harvest Faire and it is tons of fun. All the families show up for a good time, games, activities, foods, archery, puppet shows, raffles, etc. It is put on by the Parent Guild and all the items, work, food, etc., are donated by the parents and friends of the school. Then the parents and friends of the school buy/do more stuff at the Faire.

Here’s what we are expected to do for the Harvest Faire to help make it a success:
1. Donate 10 handmade items to the Children’s store, a place where only young children (Pre-K through 5th grade, I think) can enter and can purchase things for themselves, or gifts for their loved ones (the holidays are coming, after all); proceeds go to the school
2. Donate 10 handmade items for the Country Store (hats, sweaters, scarves, jewelery, toys, home decorations, preserves, and other craft items are sold and proceeds go to the school)
3. Donate a homemade cake for the cake walk
4. Donate a homemade dessert to be sold piece by piece at Café Waldorf, a place to eat goodies and drink tea
5. Buy and/or sell 20 $1 raffle tickets; the raffle prize is a handmade quilt
6. Volunteer 2 hours to work at the Faire
7. Attend the event and buy tickets so that you (your kids) can participate in all the fun activities

So far, I think we are into the Harvest Faire for over $100, and we haven’t bought any tickets or done any baking yet. Oy!

And yet …

We are having lots of fun making things for this year’s Faire. We’ve been working on them all weekend, and much of last week, too. I’ll post some pictures of our several projects soon. (Right now, I’m too sleepy.)

    I’ll buy 5 tickets. I love quilts, and since we have a pretty low threshold for fundraising for Em, I’m always happy to help out another school!

    I’m happy to buy some raffle tickets. Do I have to be present to win, though? Maybe you could hold them for me if so. Let me know.

    Wow! I had no idea Ian’s ploy would work! Thank you! I don’t think you have to be present to win. I’ll email you.
