For more than three decades, the Women of Peace group has hosted the annual Peaceful Country Boutique at Peace Lutheran Church, Coon Rapids.
Proceeds from the 2013 event Oct. 25 and 26 will go to such programs and projects as the church’s Sunday School, the church’s preschool and camperships to send children to Bible camp as well as Meals on Wheels, Loaves and Fishes, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America’s World Hunger Appeal and local foodshelves.
The boutique featured crafts, a bake sale including homemade lefse, children’s Christmas shop and door prizes.
But to be eligible for door prizes, people attending the boutique had to purchase an item or items on tables set aside specifically for that purpose.
Supper was served the evening of Oct. 25 and lunch the late morning and early afternoon of Oct. 26.
