Fall has arrived, and with it comes thoughts of autumn leaves, pumpkins, and WAIT, the annual Williamsport Harvest Hoedown! Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 1, as we at St. Andrew once again participate in the HOedown by hosting the much-loved scarecrow patch. Kids, young and old, flock to our area at Byron Park to make and take home their scarecrows. We will put premade scarecrows together on September 25, 5:00 p.m. All proceeds go to the Williamsport Food Bank Ministries.
We need LOTS of help from our St. Andrew family! So, you say you can’t help due to allergies? Not a problem! There are several volunteer jobs available, actually, most of them where you do not have to get into the hay. Our scarecrow patch will run smoothly if many people volunteer that day for 1 hour. Students looking for community service hours will find this a fun way to earn hours. Look for sign-up sheets in the parlor soon.
We still need small people’s clothes, baby onesie scarecrows are the most popular, so check out local yard sales to donate. The Harvest Hoedown is the largest fundraiser for our Williamsport food pantry. Let us at St. Andrew live our love of Christ by volunteering to help on October 1st. Contact Shirley Fox with any questions. Hope to see you all there!
