The following photos show donated items from members of the church and local community:
All ages of the church were represented beginning with the crocheted afghan and matching pillow from Rose, to Carson's Brownie cakes with hand-pounded chocolate chips, home grown, homemade cherry sauce, white chocolate and whipped cream.
Feast your eyes on these delights:

Also, the following church members for their donations:
- Dianne (handmade purses)

Thank you to all those families who contributed dessert goodies, especially when their kids don't attend youth get-togethers.
And as a church member, I'd like to thank the youth themselves for putting forth the effort to raise funds by baking, decorating, displaying and then cleaning up after this special event.
I apologize if I forgot anyone. Just let me know and I'll add you in.
I have a list of all monies raised for each item. If you want me to post it here, just let me know.
