Another Springfest in the Books! (Click for photos)
Springfest 31 was held on Sunday, May 17, 2015. We had a great day of food, fun and festivities including the return of our Italian feast of sausage, meatballs and spaghetti with a touch of Slovak traditional pagachi and some good ole American hot dogs to round out the menu. Our children's games were a big hit and the cake booth drew a crowd throughout the day. We were excited to add a cotton candy booth this year as well as our merchandise booth promoting St. Patrick's caps, shirts and even our own famous Sara Jean Brookere's cookbooks. The plant sale featured some favorites and also offered some new plants both indoor and outdoor contributed by our parishioners. Our auctioneer, Teddy Harper, did a fabulous job of generating some super bids on our one-of-a-kind auction packages. The afternoon was interesting as Fr. Vernon drew names for our 10 $100 raffle prize winners throughout the day and our grand prize winner was drawn at 3:00.
Our second prize $100 winners are as follows:
Our $2,000 grand prize winner is Wanda Edgil.
Winners for the highest raffle ticket sellers are:
Gaeton Conte - $100 for selling $582 in total raffle tickets
Jim & Barbara Glover - $75 for selling $500 in total raffle tickets
Pam Palmer - $25 for selling $400 in total raffle tickets
Our auction was a huge hit. A special thank you to our auctioneer, Teddy Harper, for giving of his time and talent to help our parish raise money through this effort. Our clotheline raffle ticket winner was Mark Lovell.
Thanks to all who worked so tirelessly to make this year's Springfest a success. Thanks also to those who supported our effort by attending on Sunday.
