We’re looking for 200 people that will sign up with a $20 donation to support Springfest 2006. One-half (that’s 50 percent) of the donations will be given back to ticket holders at the St. Patrick's Day dinner on March 17th. The other 50 percent provides much needed start-up funds for Springfest. If all tickets are sold, that means a total of $2000 will be raffled off and $2000 will go to Springfest.

What is Springfest? Springfest represents many things to the community of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Adamsville.
It is not just a fundraiser but a "fun" raiser. It is a time when the members of the church join together to put on a wonderful festival with games, food and fun. Through Springfest, parishioners come together for the common good of the church and the community. Many people in the Birmingham area look forward to the opportunity to join us for good food and family fun on the church grounds.
Springfest is held each year on the first Sunday of May. The day features delicious home-made food in our dining hall. Outside there is live entertainment, lots of inflatable attractions for the children, the cake booth and other games for adults. In the Family Life Center is our huge 'bargain basement' with garage sale type items and "Shamrock Sales" with crafts and new items. Just past the Bargain Basement is Bingo which is always fun.
The day concludes with a live auction of all kinds of items, followed by the big drawing for a $3000 grand prize. Chances are available for a one dollar donation.
Springfest - an event which depicts St. Patrick's people at their finest. The hospitality, the food, the surroundings are all first class. Plan to be there on SUNDAY, MAY 7.
