This afternoon, we had over four hundred parishioners turn out for our annual parish picnic. It’s just a nice afternoon spent with parish family. We have a local caterer prepare the main course — pulled pork, grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, and chicken tenderloins — as well as the salad. We have cookies and refreshments and a complimentary shaved ice stand outside with several different flavors (I had cherry and butterbeer — Mmmmm, good!)
Thanks to all who organized the event, set up, and/or cleaned up. Thanks to our scouts for not only helping in the set up and clean up efforts but who also did our flag ceremony. They’re top notch!
