FAMILY FESTIVAL THANK YOU

Thank you to all who supported the 14th Annual Blessed Sacrament Family Festival. All donors, volunteers of all ages-parishioners, non-parishioners, all who attended the three day event, contributed to Blessed Sacrament’s largest fundraiser. A special thank you to our two maintenance men for all their hard work this past week, Ed Bush and Tom Pearce. A special thank you to Judy Novak for office support. Thank you to Mid Valley Electric for providing work in memory of Neil R. Intoccia (a long time parishioner/electrician at our Blessed Sacrament Facilities and events). The winner of the 50/50 was Nicole Lutz, $1083.00.

We began on Friday night with all hands on deck, things going smoothly and well. A great night! On Saturday night Mother Nature hit us with a one-two punch; storm and electricity outage, a second storm to follow. Our leadership, Karen Doyle, Debbie Rimosites and Adam Davitt helped to direct enthusiastic volunteers to continue our efforts in the most amazing, creative ways. A remarkable feat! The Family Festival final profit will be determined after all the bills are paid. Again, thank you to everyone!

BLESSED SACRAMENT HOLY NAME THANK YOU!

The 14th Annual Blessed Sacrament Parish Family Festival began with a Play Wiffle! Youth Event that saw the two teams play to a 18 to 18 tie.

Karolewicz Chapter of Blessed Sacrament Parish Holy Name Society. Participates included: Reese Yazinski, Gavin Griffin, Skylynn Williams, Rhys Griffin, Gabe “Babe Ruth” James, Sage Marshalek, Leland James, Greg Vangorder, Kevin Essig, Joseph Griffin, Landon O’Malley. Big thank you to the James Family for their help in making this another successful event as part of the 14th Annual Family Festival.
