We have started to collect baskets for the Festival Booth, and want to encourage you to think about creating a themed basket for our game of chance under the big tent. Baskets, which parishioners create around a theme of their choice, go home with the winners of our game. It is a popular spot, and we want to make sure we have enough baskets to satisfy the women, children and men who stop by. The ideas are endless for a basket theme, and here are just a few ideas: Summertime fun, movie night, baby, game night, sports, spiritual enrichment, candles, wine, coffee, gardening, family activities, scrapbooking. As an example, the sports basket may include golf balls, towel, tees, a certificate to a local course. The movie basket may include boxes of theater candy, a DVD, popcorn, theater certificates.

Have fun with this opportunity – the possibilities are endless. The festival in June 7 – 9 and we will accept baskets until festival time.

Perhaps you can’t make a basket, but have a basket around the house that someone else could use. Please bring it to Mass with you and leave it on the table in the Narthex. If you are in need of a basket to fill stop by and pick one up.
