☘️St. Patrick Festival☘️

Our 30th Annual St. Patrick Festival is quickly approaching. This is one of our biggest events of the year! Some of the upcoming changes and highlights for this year include:

Carnival fun and games from 11 AM to 4 PM

Corned Beef/Ham, cabbage/green beans, scalloped potatoes, salad, dinner roll, pie, and drink will be served from 11AM to 5:30 PM.

Dance is from 7:00-9:30 pm with the big raffle at 9:30.

This event is so much fun and a very important and big part of fundraising for our church and our school. I please ask that you truly consider lending a helping hand to make this a success. There is a sign up sheet in the back of church with all of the events that need help. Thank you for joining in the food, fun, and laughter!

☘️Carnival Help Needed☘️

The St. Patrick’s Festival is NEXT WEEKEND and that means we NEED to fill the following slots for the Carnival Games as soon as possible, otherwise they will need to be shut down during the open time slots. Now, we don’t want to disappoint the 200+ kids, so please consider picking up a two hour slot. It goes quickly and is fun! We are also in need of some punch card sellers and half hour raffle people. Please see below and contact Jill Hraban at 402-314-0077 (text/call) or email her at jhraban@windstream.net to sign up. The sooner the better, as we need to get a list made. Also, if you are home with your child on Friday the 15th and are bored, we could use more help setting up the games. No need to reply, just show up to help starting at 10am. Thanks for your help!
