Octoberfest 2017

poster-for-grace-octoberfest-landscape-2016What could I possible give for the Octoberfest Silent Auction? I’m not a skilled painter and I certainly can’t draw! What kind of item could I make or cook or sew or do that would both celebrate my God-given gifts and skills, and help raise money for the Stepping Stone Emergency Shelter residents?
