FLEA MARKET THANK YOU AND REPORT

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who in anyway helped make this year’s flea market a huge success again.  Under the chairmanship of Louise Yevick and the 42 other volunteers (from both parishes) who worked the days of the sale, as well as preparing the items a fun-filled three day event occurred.  Getting the items ready – unpacking, washing, setting up, categorizing, etc) is truly a “special ministry.”  We can also not forget the many people who brought items to be sold and Chinese auction prizes; those who made donations of food, drink, baked goods.  Our expenses were held at a bare minimum because of the generosity of parishioners who made donations and prepared food.

This event not only benefits the parish but it is especially beneficial and appreciated by the members of the Duquesne community who come to support this sale by purchasing thousands of donated items.  So many people commented how this event is a blessing for their family because working minimal paying jobs they don’t always have the opportunity to get needed items and accessories for their family.  Our sale, its rock bottom pricing and the friendly atmosphere make them fell welcomed and appreciated.  This year’s profit was $7,075.66.
