FISH FRY THANK YOU

We would like to thank everyone who in any way made this event so successful.  The camaraderie and spirit was gratifying and there were lots of new people who came to help from both parishes which in itself made it so successful.  There were a few glitches which we will iron out for the next time.  The response was overwhelming.  It was the most food we’ve sold in 30 years.  Thanks to all the helpers and the guests who came and helped support their parish.  We realized a profit of $2,496.18.
