'RHUBY TUESDAY'S" Rhubarb and Rhummage





The beginning of June, for the past 4 years,
has been marked by our church's 
RHUBARB AND RHUMMAGE
Event!

Private yard sales were set up throughout
the village.

At the country church:

The "Rhuby Cafe" served up their famous
Rhubarb Dumplings
Maple Sour Cream Scones with Homemade Rhubarb Jam
and Devonshire Cream
Rhubarb Cheesecake garnished with Strawberries
Delicious Rhubarb Pie
and Free Coffee or Tea 
all for a $3.00 donation

The ever popular Bake Sale Table offered
Rhubarb Tarts, Rhubarb Muffins, A huge variety of Pies,
Cookies, Cupcakes, Muffins, Squares, to mention a few.
This year there were even some wonderful homemade
Rhubarb preserves (Relish and Jams) for sale!

The piles of fresh Rhubarb were sold for $3/generous bundle.

There was a large table of used books
Even some old cookbooks - yes - I purchased yet 
another cookbook!
Our own church's cookbook was also for sale.

The wee ones had their little faces painted with
delightful designs, the Junior Youth sold
candy kabobs, and of course there were
barrel train rides between the showers.

Free popcorn and Rhu-BBQed Hot Dogs
with fried onions and Rhubarb Relish
were delicious treats for all who came!

The Rhumble Seat Rhummage Sale wasn't
as well attended although
there were a few hardy folks who braved the weather!

Greenwood Hills Folk Band entertained guests
with their musical talents and joined in on the fun.

In spite of the cool rainy weather, a good
time was had by all!

A huge thanks to all the tireless volunteers who made this happen!

"For the Love of Rhubarb"





All proceeds will be used for Mission's Outreach.



Till next time ....... reflecting on this year's sale and planning for next year's event!
