At the time of this publication, our event is still in progress, but here’s what we know so far… Many hands were involved in making this event a success! We are so grateful for the many people who came to help and for the many donations. We had a wonderful time, and it was such a blessing to work together with others to accomplish our goal of raising money for the hungry. Everything looked fabulous! The Silent Auction area is looking great and bids are still coming in (closing November 13)! People were very generous. The white elephant was back this year and many people carried home treasures. Although we weren’t able to have crepes and omelets this year we had a coffee and baked goods cafe which was popular. We have exciting plans for bringing back the full service cafe next year! We will send out more information and a breakdown of the finances when we have the details.
Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!
Thank you for your continued support for Harvest of Hands. Your help and support gives us the opportunity to help many people. Save the date! For the 45th Anniversary Harvest of Hands on Saturday, November 4, 2023.
Craft groups work on a variety of projects throughout the year in preparation for the annual sale in November. The groups meet in the Wilderness Room on the second and fourth Wednesday evening at 7pm from January to November. We will not meet in December. We will start up again on January 11 at 7 pm. Please join us!
All are welcome at the craft groups, either to work on the planned projects or to bring your own projects and enjoy evening with friends and, of course, coffee and treats! Join us for fun, fellowship, and a sense of accomplishment. We are always looking for new volunteers to join us. We are also looking for the latest ideas to create projects in 2023. We would love to start up the Tuesday morning session again if we have the interest. If you have any suggestions, please contact Joy Arens 763.300.4542 or Linda Nerothin 763.684.6553. Crafters can also work on projects at home, and supplies are available. Contact Joy or Linda for more information. We also plan to have some informal craft classes such as felting and jewelry making.
Harvest of Hands is an annual event held at Zion to feed the hungry in our own community and around the world. Proceeds of the 2022 sale will benefit the Buffalo Food Shelf and a global hunger project.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year from the Harvest of Hands Group!
