Thank you to all those who came to our festival on Sunday. We had a wonderful day, a great turn out, and a lot of fun. In addition to being a lot of fun, our festival generally raises over $40,000 for our parish. Without it, we could not offer the services, staff, outreach, and activities that help us to fulfill our mission as a parish. Thank you. It’s too early to report on the financials this year, but the early reports seem to be positive and on track with other years.
I want to offer a special word of thanks to Bryan and Sheri Nichols and Josh and Brandi Brandstrom who co-chaired the event this year. They put countless hours in to the festival to make sure it had the needed volunteers, that everything ran smoothly, and any problems were addressed. It is a huge undertaking, and their willingness and generosity to help is greatly appreciated. Please thank them too when you see them.
I’m also grateful to all those who stepped up to the plate to chair the various events and activities. Everything seemed to run very smoothly. Thanks to all those who worked the festival and volunteered. It is a great blessing.
Finally, thank you to all those who sponsored the festival in various ways. They were listed in the bulletin and on posters, but I would also like to include them below. Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to make it run. Finally, congratulations to Anne Pribyl who won the grand prize in the cash raffle, taking home $1,500. It was good to see so many of you on Sunday. Thanks again and see you soon.
