Return to Around Bausman
The SOAR Committee
wishes to thank all of the members of Bausman who so generously donated food to
the Harvest Home Mission this Fall. A truck load of canned and bottled goods
were delivered to the Reading inner city Food Pantry at Calvary Church and a
car load of dry goods (cereal, pasta, etc.) was shipped to Haiti for the
Hurricane Matthew Relief Mission. Everyone in the Bausman family should be very
proud of your support of these two missions.
Thank you to the 9 Bausman walkers, 3 Bausman rockers and all who
sponsored them. And a special super thank you to the anonymous sponsor who gave
a fantastic donation.
This year's Benevolent Bling Award, for most money raised goes to - Bausman UCC of Wyomissing who raised $5,326!!! Amazing! Thank you again to all participants and sponsors. Bausman truly did make a difference.

New Kitchen Improvements!!
Please come check out the new stoves and the new floor in the kitchen. In order
to keep our new things looking like new there will be new procedures for using
the kitchen starting in July 2016. Thank you all for your donations to the Capital
Campaign - these pictures show your dollars at work for the good of Bausman.
Another Successful Rummage Sale!!! On Saturday, June 4th, the 2016 Rummage Sale generated at least $1,400 for use in Bausman’s general fund. To accomplish this: 9 people volunteered their time to sort, organize, price, and stage in Fellowship Hall during the two weeks before the event and 27 people worked the day of the Sale from set up until the Purple Heart truck drove away. These dedicated people donated more than 250 hours to make this event successful. Thanks go to them, to the people who provided baked goods, and everyone who donated their unwanted “treasures” for resale.
Yum! Did you get your sticky buns in March?
The Sauerkraut Dinner on Sunday, March 6 was very successful this year. Total profits are over $1,300 and the
numbers are still growing. This money will be added to the Capital Campaign Funds to purchase a
new oven, up- grade the electric system, and other changes which will make our kitchen more user friendly.
The entire Bausman Family is to be thanked for the success of this project! From the day we
made sauerkraut in late October to the preparation and serving of the dinner on March 6th, many came
Thanks to the energetic group of soup sale volunteers during our January sale - for sharing their time in picking
chickens, cutting up vegetables, pulling beef, filling containers to prepare a record
number of quarts of the soups and turkey chili for sale by the Women's Group.
