To Our Picnic Volunteers: A Heartfelt "Thank You!"
You did it all! You prepared and executed; you contacted vendors; you attended meetings. You built things. You created signs. You moved tables and chairs, and all sorts of equipment from storage to “picnic-ready position.”
You decorated and covered tables. You cleaned fryers and grills and made the place sparkle! You ordered food, picked up food, cooked food, and served food to last them until next year. You painted faces and manicured little girls! You sold T-shirts. You made arts and crafts. You did your thing with sand art. You bounced on the moon! You dunked a priest and retrieved softballs and basketballs. And when it was all over, you assumed the ugly job of restoring the school campus to its former state.
Our "little" parish picnic community of volunteers was over 500 people strong this year, and it felt like family. Like any other family, we were never bored (or boring). You do know this all means that you are cordially invited to participate in our little family reunion again next year.
We are Blessed! St. Mary of the Lakes, Pray for Us!
Our thanks to those who contributed the following photos, especially Geri Delissio and Bill DiBlasio.
Owls from the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge were a big hit with
kids and adults!
A Picnic for All Ages!
