The Last 2021 Festival Update

Posted On: Friday, August 20, 7:47 am

Thanks be to God and our patroness, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, for making the festival a great event in the life of the parish. All the details seemed to come together to forge a presentation that beckons one and all to gather and enjoy each other’s company. We are blessed by all those who donated their time, talent, and treasure to make this happening a highlight. 

Last week a big shout out went to Festival General Chair, Kevin Radwanski, for his leadership and oversight in putting all the parts and activities together in a relatively short period of time. This week we would like to recognize the Committee Chairpeople who were at the ground floor of getting things ready for the really big show. They are as follows. We are blessed by their dedication to the parish.

Congratulations to the Fifth and last Early Bird winner of $100, Sue Higgins. Of course the Grand Drawing will take place after the publication of this bulletin, but I’m sure that the winner’s name will be broadcast by word of mouth long before next week’s bulletin. 

We are blessed to have received over $40,000 in sponsorship commitment. We are very grateful for their support that will make this event more presentable and contribute to its financial success. The final list and level of sponsorship is at right.

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who came out to volunteer, support, and enjoy our Festival this year! It was so wonderful to be back, and we hope you all enjoyed yourselves while supporting a fun community event that benefits our parish.
