I submitted a separate Email comment a week ago about my personal fund-raising experiences. I think a big consideration is how much money we want to raise annually. Each alternative event has a "typical" net income level. If an alternative event raises less than the Nutmeg Festival than we would need multiple events to match it's income. If one objective here is to reduce the work load, it seems like multiple lower income events would instead increase the workload.

I do not agree...Multiple events that are less would not need nearly as much preparation and we might get some people who do not want to give a LOT of time to actually help out. Everyone cores ned to realize that the only money that goes to Outreach is currently from a Silent Auction (no one will donate in town unless they are told that the money is for charity, not our church) and the Raffle..pretty much the same thing....If the money is just for the church, then that needs to be spelled out and there may be people who wish to donate that way..There should be numerous ways to cut down on expenses.
We don't need to have printed bulletins that are so many pages..we do have prayer books in every pew. There is a lot of mail that is sent out needlessly....
