After breaking for the summer, the ECW held their first meeting on Saturday, September 19. It was a delight to see members in person and was a very productive gathering.

We are not letting the pandemic thwart our fundraising efforts and have come up with a creative solution for both our October Souper Sunday and our December Bake Sale.

This year our “Souper Sunday” will be held on Saturday, October 24, and will be a –
“Souper Saturday Sidewalk Sale”
Pre-orders for any of four of our popular soups (including Brunswick Stew) can be placed by completing and returning this form OR by contacting one of the following ECW members:

    Pat Hovorka    (919) 351-0094
    Theressa Rose    (919) 306-1643
    Kay Hewitt    (919) 934-6800

Orders will be available for curbside pickup between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 24. See the enclosed order form for variety of soups available at $10/quart, payable in advance or at pickup. Please make checks payable to St. Paul’s with the notation “ECW Soup Sale”. Deadline to place an order is Friday, October 16.

Our December Bake Sale will also be on a pre-order basis with curbside pickup. Stay tuned for additional details on the delicious goodies that will be available.

Unfortunately, due to changes in deadlines with the publisher, our St. Paul’s Cookbook will not be available this December. However, we are still moving forward with the project and are planning a release date sometime next year. In the meantime, please continue to submit your recipes either by entering them directly online or by utilizing the enclosed form. We look forward to seeing recipes from any and all who would like to contribute.

Each month ECW members gather together for fellowship and to discuss ways in which we can assist those in need in our communities. We invite all women of St. Paul’s to join us. Please come and take part as we bring our projects to realization. Your input is important, plus new and fresh ideas are always welcome.
