Sunday, October 1st through Sunday, October 8th, 2023

Fall is a time of warm days, cool nights, and nature’s amazing show of color attracting visitors from around the world.

For the church, fall means blueberries and the “Fayuh”!
The Fryeburg Fair, Maine’s Blue Ribbon Classic, is the state’s largest agricultural fair attracting more than 225,000 visitors for eight days of fun.  In addition to rides and lots and lots of food vendors, take a look at their full program of events. For more than twenty-five years, the church has operated a booth serving Blueberry Crisp which has become their largest fundraiser of the year.

Once again we are gearing up for the fair and have many opportunities for you to help.

Bakers Needed
The work begins Saturday, September 23rd, and continues until the trailer is back at the church on Tuesday, October 10th. If you like to bake, we are starting to make our famous blueberry crisp on Monday, Sept. 25th, and will be baking Monday right through Friday, Oct. 6th. The church kitchen starts warming up at 8AM and we kick it into gear at 9AM. The sign-up sheet is in the church vestry or you can call Helen Goss at 603-520-6891 to volunteer.

Booth Sales
If you and/or your friends can help with sales in the church booth starting Sunday, Oct. 1st thru Sunday, Oct. 8th, please call the church office at 603-356-2324 and speak to Denise who is helping us to fill in the (4) hour daily shifts. It can be a lot of fun and a way to get to know people better from our church and community. You will be given a ticket and parking pass for the day you work at the fair, so you have time to enjoy the fair before or after your shift.

Booth Preparation
If you can help get the booth ready to roll on Saturday, September 23rd, please let Dick Goss know at 603-520-6890 or you can call Denise in the church office. The booth and all necessary equipment will be rolling out from the church on Tuesday, September 26th for set-up at the fair. We need all the able bodies we can get for the move. Please be AT THE CHURCH at 9AM on Tuesday, 9/26, ready to load-up and roll!

Your Fundraising Team:
Dick & Helen Goss, Mark Schiller, Barbara & Fred Starkey, Jennifer Terry, and Gerry Tilton (Baker for Life)

With your help, it’s going to be another AWESOME year for the church at the Fayah!!
Hope to see you there!
