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 7th, 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 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 don’t have to get into the hay. If many people volunteer that day for just 1 hour, our scarecrow patch will run smoothly. Students looking for community service hours will find this a fun way to earn hours. The sign-up sheet is in the parlor.
We are still in need of some items. Used and new pantyhose (pantyhose can be purchased at the Dollar Tree for $1.25), small people clothes, baby onesies, Long sleeve button/snap up shirts all sizes, but especially youth and children sizes, Jeans of all sizes especially youth and children sizes, Hats, Neckties, Scarves, Belts. Place your donations in the tub found in the hall outside of the office marked scarecrows before October 1.
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 7th. Contact Shirley Fox with any questions. Hope to see you all there! Our premade scarecrow event will be October 1, 5p.m. Please note: The youth are no longer collecting clothes for Big Creek.
