OUR SINCERE APOLOGY to Liquor Depot whose name was omitted from the Fall Festival donor sign for their donation of beer, pop and ice.
                             Fall Festival THANK YOU!

Janice Frakie and Janice Godlewski express their gratitude to all who helped make our Holy Cross Fall Festival a success.

To all area chairpersons for the fine job of making everything run smoothly.
To all our workers...pick up, set up, clean up, and all serving dinner, selling tickets, ushering, office workers, and those in the booths, on the grounds and in many locations.
To our many, many donors...all who brought items for the Flea Market, Bottlemania, Mystery Gifts, Silent Auction, raffles, cakes, pickles and made items for Arts and Crafts.
To all who made "Theme Baskets." We had a great variety of fun baskets.

The Festival is a success because of your help. Holy Cross is blessed with people who are generous with their time and talent to many projects throughout the year and we appreciate it.

Thank you!
