THANK YOU to everyone who donated items to the AFOC tag sale, which took place June 3rd to June 5th. I am glad to announce AFOC made about $4200 from the sale. We are especially grateful to First Church of Christ in Simsbury, who donated to us from their working sale and to the Boy Scouts who delivered all of the items. Thank you to Paines, Inc, for the deeply discounted dumpster, to the Pickin’ Patch for being such understanding neighbors during the sale. A special thanks to our volunteers who spent hours and sometimes days working to set up, sell and clean up during the sale. They included Carmelo Aresco, Julie Blackmore and her fiancee, Keith, Evelyn Cameron, Rise Cappadone, Nicole Delong, Lauren Allison Fisher, Marianne Heymann, Jerry Hikel ,Pat Hirschy, Barbara Korzendorfer, George Murtha, Donna Neary, Willa Nemetz, Ed Paquette, Eileen Perry, Sandra Pouliot, Bobbie and Bruce Sullivan, Karen Wendhiser, Dana Wichman and Ruth Woodford.
Doing your holiday shopping, don't look forward to wrapping the presents? AFOC will be having two separate fundraisers at Barnes & Nobel. First one is December 7th at the store near West Farms Mall from 11:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m. If you can’t make that one then join us Dec 14 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Barnes & Nobel at the Farmington Valley (Canton). We will have some wonderful volunteers who will be wrapping items that were purchased at their stores that day. Barnes and Noble will be supplying all wrapping materials.
