FESTIVAL 2012 A ROUSING SUCCESS!

 

Fr. Gary and Chris Pulos start the Festival with a blessing while Chair John Poulos and Parish Council President ChrisMallakis look on. Throughout this newsletter, you’ll find pictures of parishioners smiling and working together. So many familiar faces. Why are these people happy? Because they are working together to benefit the parish. We’d love some new faces next year. It takes MORE than a village to run this event. Please consider adding your smiling face to next year’s pictures of happy memories read more ...

Following our deployment we are to submit a report to identify some of the work we encountered. The following is part of my incident report. The names have been changed to protect identities.
