SINCERE GRATITUDE I would like to sincerely thank anybody and everybody who had anything to do with our Christmas Parish Family Supper. Sincere thanks to Jeannie Logan and anybody who might have helped her in decorating the Family Life Center, to the Knights of Columbus for preparing the food, for the terrific turnout of our people. [Many favorable responses for the turnout and the goodtime together] Also further sincere gratitude to our choir for leading our Christmas Carols and for our wonderful Santa Clause who brought joy to the hearts of our children, and congratulation to Vicki McKnight who won the Madonna and Child. The raffle and bake sale were a grand success and a big financial boost for the CYO.
