Here are some shots Pastor Kerry took from our camera. The menu was hot ham sandwich, vegetable soup, mixed fruit salad and pineapple upside down cake. Our featured fun for the day were 3 Peep candy flowers in pots to 3 lucky winners who had the respective numbers under their soup bowls.

The Sister Bay Moravian church prepared 45 Thanksgiving Baskets for
various families in the community this past year. We have been
involved in this project for the past 5 years. This is an extension of
a project we did several years ago that asked the congregation to
bring a part of the Thanksgiving meal each Sunday. One week it was the
making for a pumpkin pie, next the ingredients for the ever popular
green bean casserole. This continued until we had the potatoes, gravy,
yams, stuffing, etc. We took it one step further and bought the
turkeys as well. The first year we were able to put together 25
baskets. Each year the numbers have increased. The Stewardship
Committee is so thankful for the generosity and enthusiasm shown by
the congregation for this outreach program. We hope to continue this
effort next year. Thank you one and all.
