UUMC Presents: The UUCM Mad Hatters Annual Auction
"Show me the money!"

This year's auction committee chairs are: Peter Kent and Sheila Donovan. Email auction@uumarblehead.org


Our auction is an important fundraising event for the church (and always a fun party), but it is also a great way to bring people together. Do you have a special talent or skill or a unique item to donate? Can you host a dinner? Does this sound like a fun project to be involved in? Then you've come to the right place!
Yikes! The auction is only -1086 days away, so it's too late for changes to your items to get in the printed catalog, but please make corrections anyway - they will still appear on statements and bid sheets.
The Catalogs are Ready! Pick one up at the auction table in the Holyoke Room, and use it to plan your bidding strategy. We'll have them available at the auction too - Please share with a friend.

Pie of the Month for a Year
Olga makes fabulous pies: Types of pies are somewhat but not entirely related to seasonal availability of fruits and holiday need: Apple, cherry/cranberry, blueberry, pecan, pumpkin, sweet potato, peach, pecan, custard, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry or spinach/mushroom quiche. The crust is free of trans-fat. Some of these pies could be low sugar, like apple and pumpkin. We can decide what you want and I will make it. You come pick it up at my house or I could bring it to church on Sunday. We can schedule a particular day each month or I could make it when you need it and I have enough time.
