Scarecrow Fest... another Creation Sundae (on Saturday) Outreach
Today our Church participated in the community Scarecrow Fest by offering free ice cream sundaes. Creation Sundaes - we did this in August and it was such a big hit (gave away over 270 then), and we had leftover things to use from then, so we decided to do it again.
Unfortunately at first, the weather didn't cooperate, it was rainy and there were no people out, but then it cleared up and we served over 100 free ice cream sundaes. It was a lot of fun, and the 3 hours sped by... we even stayed open about 20 minutes longer because the crowds were still around. There were lots of nice comments, tons of thanks, and both kids and adults LOVED them!!
Our Creation Day people did a great job, and the outside "hawkers/barkers" did a great job of getting people to come in too! Each business, or individuals also can enter, does a scarecrow outside of their place. We did an "Adam" scarecrow to advertise the Creation Sundae Giveaway... people can vote on the one they like the best, and the winner gets a prize (not sure what the prize is this year?), but the contest runs until the 27th of Sept...so GO VOTE FOR US! *S* (Good job by the ladies who made our scarecrow this year!!)
Since our theme was Creation, I displayed my Adam(s) and Eve torsos, and used the refurbished altar rail for the first time too...it went well with the theme and between serving ice cream and chocolate syrup as the Day One of Creation person, I overheard some nice comments on the torso assemblages, so that was pretty cool too!
We had counted on giving away more sundaes than we did, so I have two pans of blue jello left... anyone want some jello?? FREE!! *L*
