MaryFair 2011 & Auction Slideshow
Dear Saint Mary parishioners,
MaryFair was such a wonderful success this year. Every year this event shows off the hard work, generosity and fun-loving of our parish. It is an honor and joy to work with each of you. Thank you for being a part of this. If you attended or helped, you know what this past weekend meant for the fellowship of our community.
The auction evening was stunning. It was the perfect place for the adults of our parish to mingle, meet and enjoy one another's company. And if the pure pleasure of the evening experience wasn't enough, we grossed over $221,580 for our community. Our Final Appeal is included in that number. Those funds totaled just over $14,000 and will be given to our sister parish and school in Joplin, Missouri, to help get office equipment vital to operating a school. Thank you for your open hearts in giving to this cause.
Our picnic took place the next day, and it too was fabulous. What great fun was had at all the ministries' booths and stations! There were games, giant inflatables, a photo booth, awesome food and a talent show. It is our great joy as a parish to provide this special free family picnic to our parishioners. We are so proud that you are ours. See the Picnic Slide show here.
Many many thanks to everyone involved. Cheers to this year and the next!
