MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
September 9-11, 2016

The annual harvest festival is the biggest social event of the year at the Parish of St. Maximilian Kolbe. It’s a celebration of our faith and fellowship. The extensive dinner menu, the games for kids and adults, the farmers’ market, silent auction, men’s game night and ladies bingo night make the festival an event for all parishioners and the community. This festival is possible because of the generous help of parishioners. Over 100 people are needed to pull off this event. Working together is a parish tradition and a lot of fun!

Silent Auction:
It’s that time of year again! This is a parish-wide event and we need lots of help to make it a success. Last year, the items that brought in the highest dollar value donations for the church were items or services donated by parishioners.

Please consider donating some items that create excitement in bidding, such as:
• A week or weekend at a cabin
• Tickets for sporting events (from you season ticket holders!)
• Service that you could provide, such as: shoveling, mowing, babysitting, or hosting a dinner.

We will still have the adopt-a-basket program as it gets closer to the silent auction, but we just wanted to get you thinking about some larger ticket ideas!! Thank you so much for your generosity. Please contact Louise Babatz, at 651-246-0580 or lbabatz@gmail.com with any questions or to donate your gift.
