DEAR SUN SPOTS: Mexico Congregational Church, UCC (the “Green Church”) at 163 Main St. in Mexico, is planning a “Sweets for Your Sweetie” sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10. The sale is to feature baked items, candy, fudge and other goodies, all with a Valentine’s Day theme.

The event is to include three raffle baskets: a valentine basket, a fisherman’s basket and a family basket with items to appeal to children. Drawings for the raffles are scheduled for 1 p.m.
Seating will be available for customers to enjoy coffee or tea and sample the wares, which are expected to include fresh cinnamon rolls.  Attendees may also browse the puzzle swap in an adjacent room. Those who are tired of the puzzles they have already assembled are invited to bring a puzzle and take a puzzle.The event will be held in the conference room on the main floor of the church building. It can be accessed by the ramp from the parking lot or the Main Street door, near the mailbox.

Proceeds from the event will help with repairs and restoration to the church dining room, which was damaged by the December flooding.

—Carol, Mexico
