Springfest 36 is in the Books!

Ora Labora Market

May 1, 2022, will be a day to remember at St. Patrick's. It's the day our traditional annual Springfest event returned. And it returned with a bang!

Desi Nelson took on the task of chairing this event and did a phenomenal job. She and her committee implemented some great new ideas and incentives to draw in the crowd and create something for everyone. From the Ora Labora Market, which ran on Saturday and Sunday of Springfest weekend and included food trucks on Saturday to satisfy lunchtime needs and even a sweet tooth, to the favorite spaghetti and Italian sausage offerings, to children's games, adult games, our favorite spin-for-a-cake booth, and an amazing auction (thank you, Faith Harper, our favorite auctioneer), the environment was just like old times before the pandemic put it all to a halt. Check out more photos from our Facebook page.

Desi, who was very involved in all aspects of the event, has so many people to thank. Her committee consisted of the following people, all of whom were key players in making this day a great success:

  • James Nelson (Co-chair and Operations)
  • Dale Blanchard (Accounting)
  • Tina Webb and all her helpers (Kitchen)
  • Ann Tulloss / Patsy Byrd (Auction)
  • Joseph Conte / Pat Roden (Raffle Tickets)
  • Jeff & Tara Blanchard (Vendors / Ora Labora Market)
  • Jean Vines (Drinks and Desserts)
  • Krista and Brian Carroll (KidZone)
  • Pam Palmer (Donation to Kids Games)
  • Michael Wehby (Donations to shirts and more!)
  • Patty and Mike Wehby (T-shirt donors)
  • Kevin Callahan of Honda and Hyundai of Jasper (T-shirt donor)
  • Doris Moody (website / social media)
  • Father Weis (for his continued support)
