Help! Reward offered for ‘Inadvertently Missing Punchbowl’

This arrived in the WSB inbox under the heading, “The Case of the Inadvertently Missing Punchbowl.” Admiral UCC Church hopes you can help solve the “case”:

Here are the facts as we know them:

1. A glass punchbowl set with punch cups and a glass ladle was loaned to the Admiral Congregational United Church of Christ for use during receptions a month or so ago.

2. At some point it was inadvertently placed in a stack of items to be sold at the annual yard sale.

3. On July 30th, at the annual yard sale, it was sold to a lady from West Seattle whom the cashier did not know.

4. There are a number of red faces around our church because this happened, and shouldn’t have.

5. The punchbowl set was sold in a box with the name “Verle Kramer” written on it.

6. While the owner admits that the set has no great monetary value, it belonged to his mother, and therefore has sentimental value.

7. If anyone has any knowledge of the whereabouts of the set, please contact the church at 206 932-2928.

8. The purchase price will be refunded, and there is a reward being offered.

    This sounds like one of my bar exam questions.

    Me too – this is too sweet compared to a lot of the news and issues we read about.

    some of the helpers at the yard sale related that the purchaser was from another church.

Sorry, comment time is over.
