Planning for the 37th annual St. Joseph Festival in the 175th year of our parish has officially begun! Please mark your calendars and join us July 17, 18, and 19 for some family fun. Festival co-chairs Mike Flaherty and Doug Babcock, along with many dedicated committee chairs have begun the process of planning and executing another exciting and fun-filled festival.
You can count on many of the Festival event favorites you’ve experienced in the past along with new entertainment to keep the Festival fresh. The Knights of Columbus will be grilling their world famous chicken and the Country Bakeshop will provide confections that are sure to please. The Classic Car show is a personal favorite and always brings in vehicles I had not seen in previous years.
Few of you may know that the St. Joseph Flea Market is actually celebrating is 39th year, preceding the Festival in its inception. The Flea Market has accepted many quality donations in the past and requires many helpers to sort and price each item. The Flea Market committee will accept donations June 28 – July 6 from 10 AM to 5 PM. The Flea Market will be open for business July 9, 10, and 11.
We are always looking for more volunteers to help with the planning and executing this annual community event. Whether you are new to St. Joseph or a longtime parishioner, this is a great way to meet fellow parishioners and be part of the excitement in delivering a fun event to our friends and neighbors.
