I have some exciting things to tell you about:
Kimberly has taken over as the Hope Village webmaster and she has done alot of work on the website.....in fact we have two web sites now. Make note that we are switching from hope-village.net to hope-village.com. Both sites will be up for a while but eventually the .com site will be the only one. There are some new pages on the site, but we are really exited to have a donation page where you can actually make donations thru paypal using your credit card or paypal account. Anyone who wants to test it for us can make a small donation!!!
I have been working hard to set up an ebay store for the Hope Village Gift Shop. Ebay has a corporate giving program call missionfish which, once your registered, gives back all fees from listing and selling on ebay. That means that Hope Village recieves 100% of the sale. If you sell on ebay or know someone who does, you can donate a portion of your profits to Hope Village.
You can pick a single item and designate the amount you want us to recieve. I will be adding items to our store as I get a chance. So far we are selling some ceramics, candles and resale shop treasure, in fact you need to go our ebay store and check it out for yourself. http://stores.ebay.com/Hope-Village-Gift-Shop . You might have to copy and paste this address into your web browser.
If you like something that we sell in the shop and its not in the ebay store let me know and I will put it in.
Don't forget to mark October 7th on your calendars. Hopes Harvest should be a blast. Our theme is Passport to the World of Wine and we will be featuring....wines from around the world.
Anyway it should be a fabulous time, and we already have some great auction items!!!

Planning is well underway for the 2006 Hope's Harvest: Passport to the World of Wine. The wine and art event is scheduled for October 7th from 7-10pm. Tickets will be for sale soon. We need your help with the following items:
Donations of artwork for the auction- do you know a local artist/artisan who would be willing to donate an item(s) for auction. Last year we had a little bit of everything; paintings, ceramics, mosaics, wood carving, jewelery, etc. we need a wide variety again this year, ask your friends!!!
This is a good opportunity to advertise their work.
Donation of items for silent auction: anything, really.... tickets to sporting events, wine, wine related items, anything that can be put together in a basket. Use your imagination......!
Marquee tent... we are hoping to set up a tent to use for overflow seating. we need use of tent for one night......hopefully someone can donate one or knows someone who can!
We will be looking for workers to help set up, decorate and clean up after the event. If you can help us by donating you time to the event let me know.
I know this year will be even better than last year, with your help it will be a great sucess.
