NEXT FALL FESTIVAL MEETING
Our committee will meet Monday, July 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Parish Center. We welcome new members to join the group, bring along your new thoughts and ideas. Needed this year are folks to head up individual events. Our annual Fall Festival will be held September 22 & 23 this year. The Festival can’t be a success without volunteers. Come be the success behind our Fall Festival 2018.
FALL FESTIVAL SILENT AUCTION TEAM NEEDS YOUR HELP TO BUILD A BETTER BASKET!
We need new items with the price tags on please. We need to know the value when making the bid slips.
Items for men are especially needed. Items for babies, bridal shower items, Minnesota items, gift wrapping items, pet items, grilling items, sports items, wine, baking, holiday, home décor items. Items for teens. Small appliances such as pizza ovens, toasters, mixers, blenders, waffle irons, hair irons and blow dryers. Games and toys for children, please remember the boys!! Tickets to the Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Twins, and Minnesota Wild are always well received. Power tools, tool kits. Gift cards are great too. Theater tickets (the Ordway, the Guthrie, etc.) would also be another welcome additions.
When dining out at your favorite restaurant, inquire with the manager if they would consider donating a gift card to the Fall Festival. We will send a “thank you” letter to them.
Bring your donations to the Parish Office Monday – Thursday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Friday 9:00 am to 12:00 pm or you can leave them by the St. Matthew Icon when you come to weekend Mass. Thank you for your donations.
IN-PERSON VISITS TO BUSINESSES
The Fall Festival can use help going to area businesses and soliciting donations. Besides the Silent Auction, donations are need for the Paddle Wheel and other games such as Bingo. This might sound like a job no one wants to do but it is really not that hard. Most of the businesses have already received a letter. They may have forgotten to send an item. We can work in pairs so you would not have to go alone. Consider helping out with this task. We will be starting this the first part of August. If you have questions or want to help contact Ann Contreras () or leave your name with the parish office.
Also, keep checking the this website for updated information about the Fall Festival and silent auction.
