FUMC Chicken BBQ and Spring Yard Sale on Saturday, April 21

posted Feb 20, 2018, 9:40 AM by FUMC Webmaster

Please mark your calendars — the date for the FUMC Chicken BBQ Fundraiser and the FUMC Spring Yard Sale is Saturday, April 21st.   The Chicken BBQ will be served at the VFW on Route 220 south of Fincastle.  Food preparation activities occur in the FLC on Thursday and Friday, the 19th & 20th.  Lots of volunteers are needed to make this a success!  The Chicken BBQ event is coordinated by Gayle Ross and benefits the ‘Imagine No Mortgage’ campaign.

The Spring Yard Sale will be held on the same date at the Family Life Center.  Items may be brought to the FLC in advance of the sale and placed on the stage.  There are some limitations on what can be brought for the Yard Sale: 

1.  items should be clean and in good condition.   

2.  Clothing should be donated to the Clothing Closet; it is not sold at the Sale.

3.  For this sale, we can accept furniture items in good condition.  

4.  Older tube-type TVs (non-flatscreen) cannot be accepted.  

5.  CD’s and DVD’s can be accepted, but only children’s books will be accepted.  Other types of books and periodicals should be donated to the Fincastle Library for their used book sale. 

The Yard Sale is coordinated by Teresa Corvin.  Please contact her for more information or to volunteer to help.  Thank you!

Together On Wednesdays (TOW) is the FUMC mid-week fellowship meal and program night for adults, youth and children.  Come to the Family Life Center each Wednesday for a great meal at 6 pm, and then stay for the programs for the whole family.  If you are a first time visitor to TOW, your first meal is free!  The suggested donation for the meal is $4 per person with a cap of $12 per family.  Contact the church office at 473-3001 for more information about programs each week.

The last TOW of the spring schedule is May 9, 2018.  There will be no TOW meals or programs during Holy Week (March 28) or the week after Easter (April 4).
