It’s finally cooling off after a rather mild summer here in Tennessee. The air is cooling off, our Saturday’s are filled with soccer games, and the thought of soup after church brings a comforting feeling. Regardless of where you live, fall brings certain memories or feelings.
The major fall holiday is one that reminds us to be thankful. We are thankful for our faith, our family, our friends, and our homes. Those of us in ministry are also thankful for our volunteers. Here are a few fall-friendly ideas that you can use to thank your volunteers.
Thank You Towels:
Everyone can use a good kitchen towel and I found these fall-themed towels at Walmart for only 88¢. Simply print THIS LABEL and tape to the tag and BOOM!!! Instant thanks!
Mums are the go-to flower of fall. I found these miniature mums at Walmart for $1 each. Print THIS LABEL and attach to the care-instructions. To make it a little more decorative, I wrapped the black plastic pot with a piece of colored construction paper.
It’s a lot easier to take that hot apple pie out of the oven with a good oven mitt. These fall-oriented oven mitts were 88¢ at Walmart. Print THIS LABEL, attach to the tag, and your thanks is red-hot!
