NEW THRIFT STORE STARTING – “One More Time” We are starting to make progress washed this week and then have the walls painted. We are still working on getting a third bay in the building, which will serve as a drop-off area for donations, as well as our sorting area. We received a generous donation of second hand fixture items but we will need more. We understand that not everyone in the parish will be able to volunteer to work in the store because of health reasons or time limitations. However, if you want to be part of our parish store we will gladly accept monetary donations as we need to purchase paint, etc. Also, if anyone has untreated lumber they’d like to donate we would appreciate it. We need to build a rail and a ramp. If interested in volunteering call Brenda Verschelde, at 872-5193 Our plan is to open our doors for business on July 1st, with a Grand Opening during Minneota’s Crazy Days in July. More information to follow. Our Parish Store Group consist of Brenda & Gene Verschelde, Jeanette Sharp, and Barb & Jon Guttormsson if you have any questions.
