We had a very successful Holiday Bazaar last Thursday with the Lake Erie Islands Nature and Wildlife Center! Thanks for all who had a table or came out to shop!! The Conservancy made over $600 selling birdseed, island jelly, t-shirts, raffle tickets, and calendars. We still have t-shirts and calendars for sale-photos are attached. Our 2023 Conservancy calendars are $20 each and have beautiful photos by island photographers of our preserves! We can mail for an extra $3 or you can call Lisa Brohl or stop by the Island Hardware Store to pick one up.
Attached is also an order form for the delicious peanut butter made by the Brown’s. They were unable to attend due to weather but will still fill orders and bring to the bay if you want some. Give them a call.
Conservancy member Jeanine Steinle has offered a Tastefully Simple Fundraiser to benefit the Lake Erie Islands Conservancy. You can still order using this fundraiser link before November 30. https://www.tastefullysimple.
com/p/11461345 and the proceeds will benefit the Lake Erie Island Conservancy. Visitors to the Bazaar got to taste the delicious Nana’s Apple Cake and Beer Bread from Tastefully Simple. Jeanine also donated a basket of Tastefully Simple products to raffle at the Holiday Bazaar-we sold over $180 worth of tickets that night and the winning ticket holder was Linda Parker! Thanks Jeanine for thinking of us!
We also had brats/hotdogs/buns donated by Patty LoPresti which we received donations for during the Bazaar as well! We appreciate the use of Village Town Hall and wish to thank their employees Erin and Jenny Fuchs as well as Elizabeth Heineman, Michael McIntyre, Susan and Mike Byrnes, Tom Thanasu for help in setting up that day!
So it was a delicious fun evening at the Town Hall! Thanks to all who participated and reach out if you still want to purchase anything from vendors or Conservancy!
