News from the Holy Rosary/Juan Diego Community

Message from the Principal: Jan. 11th

Happy Wednesday!

Thank you to everyone who was able to fulfill their Crab Feed procurement obligations by last Friday. We have very few who did not either procure an item or pay the $100. So, very few have the $150 auction charge on their bills this week. Yeah!! Statements are going out today, so please take a look for those in your Wed. envelopes. Speaking of the Crab Feed...it is right around the corner. If you haven't purchased tickets for this amazing event, please do so. It is on Saturday, Jan. 28th at Bellarmine. We will have crab, prime rib, beer, wine, and a silent and live auction. It is a fantastic evening. Did I mention the dancing, as well?? Please join us. You can purchase tickets online at https://hrrsjda.ejoinme.org/crabfeed2017tickets or through the front desk. This is a critical fundraiser for our school, but also a lot of fun. I hope to see you there!
