Yesterday we held our annual Love Crop to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Thirty-two women gathered at Central Presbyterian Church in Chambersburg to scrapbook and make other crafts like jewelry. The weather cooperated - no snow! From 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, we worked on a variety of projects, shopped at the yard sale tables full of goodies, and enjoyed a delicious lunch provided by Martha Mongold. Thanks Martha for the yummy baked potato bar. Brenda Geiman's homemade iced tea and pink lemonade gave us a summertime feeling!
Everyone enjoys seeing what other scrapbookers are making to get new ideas.
Shopping at the yard sale was fun. There were so many items to choose from. Thank you to those who donated items for sale. 100% of the proceeds benefits the JDRF!
One of the first to arrive, Martha gets right to work! Scrapbookers don't waste a minute of scrapbooking time!
What a wonderful group of ladies! Some traveled from as far away as West Virginia! Notice the gentleman in the above photo. He brought his lovely wife Gloria and spent some time with us working on his computer before heading out to find a hotel. Gloria and her daughter Donna were the first of eight to register for our fall crop to be held October 23rd.
Thanks to everyone who made this event such a success. We raised $920.00 which will be sent to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on Monday. Because of the generosity of area businesses, the church, and volunteers, we had no expenses for this event. Every penny raised will go to JDRF. You can visit the website to read about the progress being made to find a cure as well as less invasive treatments so that hopefully children afflicted with this disease may either be cured and/or no longer have to endure a lifetime of needles. Our next Crop For A Cure will be held October 23rd!
