Valentine Luncheon

I am sharing last year's Valentine Luncheon
at St. Anne's Anglican Church in Richmond.
A fundraiser to help this church in need.
A lot of hard work, time and effort goes into 
these fundraising events.
Because of the dwindling congregation
and an aging population,
this Church is struggling to stay open.
Another Luncheon is planned for this year.









Everything was beautifully set up when we arrived



A Sales Table, nicely set up
Marge Lancaster and Loretta Irwin 
Dedicated Volunteers
Lots of Green Items for Sale
St. Patrick Day is the 17th of March
A lot of Irish settlers in the Townships
Jewelry, red vases  and other things
Glassware, Crystal and Silverware
A lover of vintage glassware, this was up my alley.
I bought the yellow vase and 
other items that are no longer on the table.
My sister Ann who collects blue glass
 bought the vases on the right with silver bases.
Prices all under $5.00.

More Glassware, vintage vases, watches and linens
Baked Goods
More Baked Goods


 
Golf Books, Linens,  etc

Many years of Dedicated Service

The Church is not used in the Winter months because of the huge heating costs.
Part of the congregation,  approx 25 hold a service each Sunday
in the "Common Room"

Built in 1884-85 and consecrated
May 1900 by Lord Bishop A.H. Dunn.

My pics are dark..... I should have turned the lights on.
3 flags, first one in the left hand corner is the Anglican Church of Canada Flag,
