On behalf of the Oxford scrapbookers Facebook Group, we would love to thank the community of Oxford for the wonderful support in helping make our first “Crafting for Our Community” on November 25 a successful fundraising event.
We would like to give a very sincere and heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Holy Cross Lutheran Church, especially Pastor Matt Schuler and Roxann Marchesi, for graciously allowing us the use of their facility.
We would also like to thank the 43 crafters for supporting Blessings in a Backpack-Oxford by coming out to spend the day with us and financially supporting our activities, especially the raffle to benefit the Terrian family of Oxford.
Last, but certainly not least, we want to give a big thank you to all the local Oxford businesses, sponsors, vendors, and individuals who graciously contributed to this event by either donating raffle prizes, goodie bag trinkets, or other items to support our event- Thank you for sharing your time, talents and products with us.
