THANK YOU TO SO MANY!
The COA Booster Board Members send their thanks to all the volunteers who worked to make our Craft Fair and Bake Sale on November 5 such a tremendous success. We thank the bakers for their delicious and attractive contributions to the Bake Sale. We received the largest ever amount of baked good yet were sold out mid way. Delicious Clam Chowder and chili, generously donated by The Crest Family Caterers, was served in our Seaflower Café. The demand exceeded the supply, and they sold out early as well.
The raffles were a great financial success with over 60 items given by the vendors along with several painting donated by the Senior Center art classes. None of this would have happened without our Booster membership and the hundreds of others who supported us by shopping and enjoying our fabulous Craft Fair and Bake Sale. After expenses, we expect to net over $6500 to add to our treasury to help support programming, supplies, and equipment for the Marshfield Senior Center.
We are already talking about an even bigger and better Craft Fair in 2023!
Please help us by donating a baked item. Download volunteer form and fill out. You may return to the Booster mailbox at the Senior Center or mail to P.O. Box 165, Marshfield, MA 02050.
The Chamber of Commerce will host Lobsterfest on the town pier Saturday, September 17, and once again extended a complimentary booth to the Boosters so we can get out our message of support for the senior Center. Peggy Slade, chairperson, and her committee will raffle a handcrafted rocking chair cleverly crafted from lobster traps. Plan to attend and have fun!
The Boosters and Chairperson Peg Davis continue to plan for the annual Holiday Craft Fair on Saturday, November 5th , which promises to be bigger and better this year. It’s a great place for holiday shopping with unique hand-crafted items at reasonable prices during this time of high inflation. Stay for lunch and try our chili or clam chowder. Vendor applications are available and call 781-363-2050 for more information.
Our Holiday Bake Sale takes place in conjunction with the Craft Fair. You can make it better than ever with your donated baking skills. Volunteer bakers are needed to prepare cookies, brownies, cakes, muffins, fudge, gluten free baked good as well as pies, quiches and more.
Chairperson Liza Corbett will be sending out more information soon.
The Craft Fair and Bake Sale generate a substantial amount of fundraising monies for the Boosters, earmarked to support our Senior Center.
