To help make our bazaar a huge success we are looking for people to make and donate:

  • Christmas themed, and any baked goods-very popular so please help fill the table
  • Christmas crafts and decorations to sell
  • Gift cards and gift baskets from local businesses for our silent auction are a very popular item.
  • Clean Garage sale items for our Country Store
  • Books, movies, and music
  • Jewelry and fashion accessories
  • Children’s toys and games
  • Small pieces of furniture

…and volunteers to help run the event

Please, please sign up and inform us early so we know we have the bodies needed to help make this Britannia’s largest fundraiser!!

Share the date with friends and family. Remind them of our tasty hot turkey sandwich served with veggies and dessert is apple pie with ice cream.
