ASP Spring 2018
Plant Sale - Deadline this Sunday!
Spring is here! Now’s the time to think about your spring planting! We have gorgeous plants from Hamilton Farms at Boonton and they’ll be ready for Mother’s Day.
We have beautiful flowers, delicious veggies and fragrant herbs. They’re top quality at competitive prices. And it’s for a great cause. While you beautify your home or grow tasty veggies, you’re helping our youth and adults make homes warmer, safer and drier in Appalachia. Thank you so much for your support.
Plant forms are in the office, Link, April Lion’s Roar or find them
in the Little Roar.
Please return plant forms to Jenny Phillips by Sunday April 29, 2018.
I’m happy to help with any questions, please call me at 908-451-9638 or email
Thank you from the Rummage Sale Team
Thank you St. Mark’s for another successful Rummage Sale. Your donations were fantastic, your help invaluable, and your baked goods delicious. Throughout the week, so many of you graciously assisted us from set up to clean up, and we shared great fellowship.
We are pleased to announce that the Spring 2018 Rummage Sale raised about $11,000. As this is one of St. Mark’s biggest fund raising activities, everyone should be very proud of the success it has achieved.
Again, many thanks for all your efforts. Your participation was greatly appreciated.
Harry, Kit and Annabelle
Come and join us for painting or other arts and crafts on a Tuesday in the Arts Studio downstairs. We usually arrive at around noon and finish by 4:00pm. Come for as long as you like. We work on our own paintings, have a great time together and help each other out. For more info contact Jenny Phillips 908-451-9638.
