They’re here . . . or will be soon!

It’s the time of year when students from all over the globe arrive at Put-in-Bay to work and learn about American culture. To help them make the transition, St. Paul’s Church is hosting a Welcome Fair on June 6th, from 5:30-7:30, in the church undercroft (enter through the Food Pantry).St. Paul's Episcopal

St. Paul’s would like to introduce the student workers to some of the great things PiB has to offer, starting with a homemade soup supper, a gift bag, and information about some of the services that are available. We would also like to give the new employees a chance to obtain some additional household and personal items by offering a bargain sale (think 10 cents or less) of new and gently used items.

A new service to be introduced at the Welcome Fair is a ride sharing program. If you are going to “the other side” (Bassett’s, Wal-Mart, Kroger, Sandusky Mall, Best Buy, etc.) and have room to take some passengers, just leave a sign-up sheet in the Church foyer. Interested student employees can then sign on to join you.  This program, and more, will be explained at the Fair.

If you would like to help, there are plenty of opportunities:

  • Donate items for the bargain sale (contact Candy Baker 440-708-8176 to drop off your goods)
  • Help stuff gift bags (June 1st, 10:00, St. Paul’s undercroft)
  • Attend the Fair to meet and welcome the students
  • Volunteer to share your ride
  • Most importantly, encourage your employees to attend

Let’s show everyone the best of our culture!
