Our Lady of Fatima is looking for vendors for our Ladies Night Out. It will be held at Our Lady of Fatima church. It will be on Saturday, December 6 from 5 to 10 p.m. It will follow the 4 p.m. mass. To start, we will likely see a lot of church members followed by a lull and then we anticipate a very good crowd. If you are interested in purchasing a table, the cost is $30 per table and we are asking for a donation to our auction table. It does not have to be big or very expensive. We provide the tables and then you set-up and sell your product. Your profit is your profit. It’s Christmas time, so it could be very successful for you. We hope that you will join us and, if so, we are requesting that a check or cash be sent to secure your spot. We will also be providing beer, wine, cheese and other snacks for the crowd. There will be steps to come down, but we will have help for you if you need it and it’s not more than 8 to 10 steps. You can send a check made payable to OLF-CYO as follows: Our Lady of Fatima Rectory, c/o Amy Polito, 1 Fatima Drive, Secane, PA 19018. If you know of someone else that might be interested, you can direct them to Theresa Myers at tmmyers04@comcast.net or 610.809.9691.

If you are interested in playing OLPH basketball grades 5th – 8th boys or girls, please contact Dan Staiber at 610-532-8822
