Summerlea Bazaar 2009

The 2009 Summerlea bazaar took place Saturday November 21, 2009 on a mild sunny day. The ambience was festive and warm, and a good time was had by all. The finance committee reports that it was financially successful as well.

Many thanks from the Summerlea family to all those who participated in ways too numerous to tell.

Special thanks to Nancy Mark and Sinclair Harris for acting as coordinators on top of their full-time jobs and family responsibilities. And to Kate Smart who took vacation to direct (and do) the setup while Nancy and Sinclair were unavailable. And to Linda Rodrigues-Rodd, who set up and sold on bazaar day with two busted ankles.

Thanks to George Provias and John Hendery, who set up the country store and installed the festive lighting early Thursday morning and put it all away Monday morning.

Thanks also to the Summerlea Youth Group, Guides, Scouts, and leaders, and students of Lakeside Academy, who helped by setting up tables and books, serving in the lunch room and putting everything away after the bazaar, so the church and halls were spick and span for Sunday morning.

Bazaar 2009

By about 4 PM the scouts and youth group and leaders had the church and halls bereft of any vestiges of a bazaar, apart from the Country Store which remained in place for some Sunday after-church discount sales. It was dismantled and stored Monday morning by George and helpers.

Thus ends another successful and fun bazaar.
Thanks to everyone who participated - we'll see you next year.
