Christmas Stockings at Fields of the Wood

I am posting this for Pastor Don Johnston. It is taken from a post that he made on another forum.

The Fields of the Wood is doing a little fund raiser that will go to benefit our Christmas Light Display. The money raised will be designated specifically for that purpose and will not be used for any other purposes. The funds will help us to purchase new decorations and repair some that we all ready have. The more we raise the better and better our Light Display will be each year.

Here is what we are doing. We are doing Christmas stockings made out of plywood and painted like a stocking. We are asking for a donation of $5.00 dollars per stocking. What we are going to do with them is put your name or what ever name you request and it will also have the abbreviation of the State you are from. It will also be numbered so in the case of more that one person with the same name from the same State your personal stocking can be found. We are then going to put them on stakes and line the driveway and roadways with them. We have several that have requested that we do one in memory of a loved one and we have set aside the side walk that goes up to the tomb to give the In Memory stocking a "special" place. We have one local church that requested a copy of the order form and they purchased 38 of them.

If you would like to do that with your local church we will also make an "extra" stocking that will have the name of your local church and then all of the orders that you send in with it will be grouped together following the church stocking.

You can make your donation one of two ways. If you are interested, please contact me at
