A Fabulous Fundraiser - 11/04/17

The 3rd Scrapbook Crop was held at St. Nicholas Church Social Hall on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 9 AM-9 PM. There were fifty-nine registrants for the daylong event. Scrappers came from all over the Greater Pittsburgh area and as far as New Bethlehem, PA. For the uninitiated, a “crop” is a gathering of like-minded people who bring their photographs, memorabilia, embellishments, paper, and albums and create scrapbooks, cards, and boxes for the purpose of preserving and presenting family history.

This event has grown over the years - from 35 attendees to 63 this year!

The event was hosted by the Church’s Outreach Committee and volunteers who performed various tasks such as setting up the church hall for the event, shopping for supplies for meals, gathering donations both monetary and in the form of gift baskets and gift cards, cooking, baking, and clean-up. A breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner were provided to the scrappers. During the event, a bake sale open to the public occurred simultaneously.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will be used towards the purchasing of the altar and icon stand coverings in the church.
