“We have been enormously blessed by the public’s support for this fundraiser through both sales and donations, but the sheer amount of work involved by the members of our congregation across all generations has warranted a much needed rest,” said Joy Mounts, associate minister.  “Next year we look forward to harnessing that support in the form of a new fundraiser, stay tuned!”
