Flower Fund Book Sale is on the 22nd of March 2020
Happily the environment was not burdened with a huge fire to get rid of all the books brought into the hut for this year’s Flower Fund Book sale. Even the amount of people using an E-reader did remain quite low I understood. In fact, quite a number of members of our congregation did rummage through the, generously donated, huge pile of books on offer. Unfortunately the amount of books in the English language was a bit disappointing. Luckily a lot of us do read Dutch as well and they could find a lot of fine quality reading material.
Saturday before the Book sale Theda and I will sort through the books and try to set up the tables in an orderly display of categories and titles.
This year’s books were quite a number of donated by Blair and Marilyn because of their move to Wales. We do hope that a lot of books on offer will go to a new owner. At the end of the Book if some titles are still unsold, part will be taken by Theda to try and sell them at the Summer Teas and the Castle Fair church stall in due time. The remainder will again be taken to the collection point of the Glanerbrug Book Fair depot. They organize, each January a huge Book Fair aimed for Charities. The revenue is split three ways, one part for the homeless shelter “De Wonne” in downtown Enschede. Another part for the young girls home “Casa de Menino in Campina Grande, Brazil and the last part for the Vincentius Vereeniging (Association to counter poverty in material and physical sense > community social service.)
