Neighbor to Neighbor Announces Winners at Holiday Boutique
After having to cancel last year due to COVID-19, the Neighbor to Neighbor almost-annual Holiday Boutique finally returned November 20th at Neighbor to Neighbor in downtown Concordia.
The event featured baked goods, crafts, art and holiday decorations just in time for the holidays. Director Sister Missy Ljungdahl said the event was a great success.
“We want to thank everyone who came out to support us this year,” she said. “It was great to see everyone back at Neighbor to Neighbor again.”
A highlight of the event was the raffle ticket drawings and silent auction.
Raffle ticket winners were: Rod’s gift card, Sister Jodi Creten; El Puerto gift card, Mary Denise Carlton; Walmart gift card, Delaney Boucher; Chocolate basket, Roger Long; Coffee basket, Linda Brown; and Cross Stitch/Quilted Wall Hanging, Tomlin.
Silent auction winners were: Wooden truck, Sisters Kathy Schaefer and Jean Ann Walton; Dinosaur park, Lacy Champlin; Butterfly painting by Sister Ramona Medina, Sandra Detrixhe; Crocheted bear in a buggy, Kay Cummins; Doll and outfit, Pam Campbell; and Toy wagon, Tari Kadel.
All proceeds from the event go to support the women and the ministries of Neighbor to Neighbor, a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.
Sister Missy said that because they had so much fun, they will have an encore event from 8 am to 11 am on Friday, November 26th. She said it is called the “S’more Sale” because “we have some more to show you.” The event will contain more hand-crafted goods, decorations and art — and the lowest prices of the season. There will be no baked goods at this event.
The first 30 people inside the door will receive a free S’mores packet for making a delicious treat.
