We forgot a few things in the first Retreat Confirmation email, so here is Addendum #1 (and hopefully the ONLY one, but …)
Please see the items suggested below and bring what you have to share and swap. (I’ve personally “scored” some lovely things at the silent auction!) Bring some $$ with you. Also, watch the weather reports for the Napa area and bring appropriate attire — it will be COLD, might be wet as well.
1. The Napa UUFNB group will once again honcho the silent auction, led by Suze Bobzien. Good, clean clothing is welcome…we have some extra racks and hangers this year. Clean out your souvenirs, bric-a-brac, gift drawer; unclutter and recycle for a good cause…our Scholarship Fund. Remember, no scented items.
2.We will also conduct the Basket Raffle again, helped by Jane Bledsoe. This is purely a voluntary contribution for each church or area represented. Get a basket or a cute box, ask everyone attending from your area and your congregation to donate one item…a bottle of local wine, homemade jams, cookies, etc., some gourmet item from your kitchen that you won’t use, local produce like apples, etc. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just put together with fellowship.
3. Friendship Necklace: Sylvia Jones asks you to bring an unusual bead, broken jewelry that can be restrung, “found” beads, etc., that we’ll string together to make a Friendship Necklace to auction off. Sylvia has picked up beads from her own collection, at the Enchanted Forest, Angkor Wat and the Taj Mahal, to help make a one-of-a-kind souvenir of the weekend.
Thanks! See you lovely ladies in 5 days!
