NEW THIS YEAR, RIDES!!!
In addition to several of the traditional Inflatables, this year's picnic
will feature 3 rides. The line-up of games has been improved to provide fun
for all young people, whatever their age.
Again, this year, youth bracelets will give unlimited access to the
Inflatables and Rides. Bracelets may be purchased in advance for $15 or on
the day of the picnic for $20. Advance sales will take place after all
weekend Masses two weeks prior to the picnic and in the parish office during
regular business hours.

SH-BOOM FAREWELL TOUR
As part of Sh-Boom's Farewell Tour, they will appear from 6:00 - 10:00 PM
for the last time at this year's picnic. While there are plans to have them
for a dance in the Fall, this will be the last time they appear at our
picnic. Slight Return, a band featuring members of the parish will
open for Sh-Boom on the main stage from 3:00 - 5:00 PM.
DONORS AND SPONSORS
The Basket Raffle, Plant Booth and Country Store are currently looking for
donations and prizes. The Country Store needs your homemade and handmade
pies, jellies/jams, quilts, scarves, woodworking items, and other craft
items. Please drop off non-perishable items in the parish office. (Bring
perishable items on the morning of the picnic).
We are also inviting people to sponsor a booth, game or the main stage.
Sponsorship helps reduce the costs in putting on the Parish Festival and
provides a hedge against unforeseeable eventualities such as inclement
weather. If you are interested in being a sponsor or would like more
information on sponsorship, please contact Kim Lakin (314 210-8451).
PICNIC VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Meet new people and enjoy time with friends by signing up to work a shift at
the picnic. For younger parishioners, volunteering at the picnic is a great
way to earn service hours. You don't need to work all day, just a single
shift. Each shift last for 2 hours. New this year... we've added a
miscellaneous category for those who want to volunteer and are willing to
work wherever they are most needed in the time slot of their choice!
Sign-up list will be available in the back of church after weekend Masses
and on the parish website. For more information, contact Donna Thomas (636
