Annual Bazaar
Mark your calendars for this year’s Bazaar and Turkey Dinner! This has been a highly popular annual two-day event in the community for over 60 years. This year’s Bazaar is scheduled for November 1 and 2.
Turkey Dinner News! 
November 2nd is our Annual Turkey Dinner Fund Raiser! Turkey Dinner 2019 begins a new era of the annual fundraiser and we are asking for your help. This year, Jennifer Idell, Allison Jessup, Sam White, and Susan Winward will be continuing the tradition by leading the charge with organization and management. In addition to baking all of the pies on Friday, they will be making sure the roles Fr. Jim played are fulfilled, gather donations, as well as getting other volunteers lined up to handle the many jobs that go into making this one of our biggest events -- one that is a fun family tradition for many. They are seeking volunteers to establish a leadership role for the 2020 dinner so that this tradition can continue. They are hopeful that a few good hands for the future will ensure this time-honored fundraiser continues for all to enjoy for years to come.
