St. Mary's Council of Catholic Women

 Thank You to the Parish- "Rummage & Bake Sale- 2015" 
This year was our 5th. annual "Rummage & Bake Sale"- and another great success due to the parish's donated items, delicious baked goods, help and support. The variety  of donated itmes included hundreds of items .....a long list of quality items that were offered to the community at bargain prices. The Council of Catholic Women want to thank eveyone for all of your time spent sorting and organizing items; baking wonderful baked goods; lifting and carrying boxes, tables, and whatever we needed to get ready for this two day event. THANK YOU ALL. The Council committee sponsors this project but many have to help to make it such a great success. Total profit from the two day Sale was a little over $1800.00. Outstanding! Great Job Everyone!!!
The huge stacks of donated items and delicious baked goods have grown in quantity and quality, each year. Food items are a large part of the success of this event as it is an extra we offer Sale visitors along with free coffee to enjoy their shopping. St. Mary's Council of Catholic Women want to thank especially the men of our parish that consistently are there to support the Council projects. They do the much needed heavy work of setting-up and taking down tables/chairs and taking all left over itmes to Bargain Bonanza, in Clinton. This is a part of the project that is important and hard work; and, we could not do it without their cooperation and support. 
Special Thank You to the "Team": Our ladies-Betsy Prombo, Debbie Hauptman, Fran Plude, Sandy Schroeder, Peggy.........., Brightie .........., Mary Latwesen, Jane Swearingen, Barb Winandy, Connie Helms, Lana Nugent, Nancy Anderson....and Jeannie House. Our gentleman-Mark Kaiser, Jim Fisher, Bob Nowak, Steve Hollister, John Hauptman, Vern Latwesen, Jim Prombo...and Elvie' Swearingen. Also, special volunteer members of the Morrison High School Key Club and students of MIT were outstanding help in the "clean-up" following the event.
