I Will Sing couldn't explain why Santa was at one of their local Episcopal Churches, but this Santa made a one day stop at our bazaar. He attracted enough business to top the 5000 mark(ok, I gave the bearded guy way too much credit on that one). A third of it goes outside of the community (Episcopal Relief and Development being one of the ones), inside the local community (Habitat for Humanity and Meals on Wheels are two examples) and then the other third will remain within the church community to continue vital ministries within.
Every year, the day before, we swear we will never do another one, but how can we not when so many ministries are impacted in a positive manner.

The big guy markets well, huh?

Hi Cathy
Just a note to say thanks for stopping by for a visit and taking time to say hello.

Santa looks quite at home on the lawn in front of the church even if there isn't a flake of snow to be seen anywhere. I guess you just have to think snowy thoughts to make the guy feel welcome in warm sunny spots too.

Enjoyed reading some of your posts and will be back to visit again.

I found out recently that an inflatable Frosty made a one day visit for Home Congregation's annual craft fair. This is good marketing that brings people in and is a great idea.

What I don't get is why anyone would keep him there for more than a day...

Cathy, your church looks so much like mine! Same color, same size.
