Springfest 32 was held on Sunday, May 1, 2016. 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, held indoors in the Raymond J. Murrin Family Life Center, were a big hit and the cake booth drew a crowd throughout the day. We were excited to add some new games this year as well as new prizes for the kids. Our merchandise table sold our "Be Like Patrick" t-shirts and wristbands for the kids' games.  The plant sale featured some favorites and also offered some new plants both indoor and outdoor contributed by our parishioners. Our auctioneer, Faith 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 the end of the auction.

Our second prize $100 winners are as follows:

  • Jim Glover
  • William Boone
  • Sherrill Cochrane
  • Danny Peoples
  • Harold Myers
  • Janice Busby
  • Ann Tulloss
  • James & Jean Vines
  • Jim Glover
  • Bobby Butler

Our $2,000 grand prize winner is Trisha Guy.

Our auction was a huge hit. A special thank you to our auctioneer, Faith Harper, for giving of her time and talent to help our parish raise money through this effort. Our clotheline raffle ticket winner was Gwen Hallmark.

Our thanks to those who rolled up their sleeves and gave a total of 11 pints of blood to the LifeSouth blood mobile.

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.
