Parish Picnic & Raffle Sunday, September 9 Sponsored by the Men's Club
As you can imagine, the Parish Picnic is a very large undertaking. Without the help of parishioners, hosting this huge party for the entire parish would not be possible. Over the next few weeks (Aug 19th & 26th), sign-up sheets for volunteers will be available before and after Mass.
Please consider taking some time out from enjoying the picnic to help out. If everyone does a little, the day is more fun for everyone. Volunteer opportunities range from helping with the carnival games to serving food with lots of things in-between. For the younger parishioners in need of service hours, this is a great opportunity to help the parish community, while getting credit for hours worked.
The Men’s Club of St. Margaret Mary donates a significant amount to the parish and community. The Picnic, Raffle and Silent Auction are our primary sources of fundraising for the year. Donations are being accepted for silent auction and raffle prizes. If you would like to make a donation please contact Jeff Krebs at (630) 240-4429. We appreciate your help and support.
