FALL FEST 2017
Dear Parents and Parishioners:
On October 8, 2016, St. Christopher’s Men’s Club will produce and host the annual St. Christopher Fall Fest. For those of you who are not familiar with the event, it is a pay-one-price event that includes live music, food, beer, soft-drinks, multiple activities for children and a sock-hop for older children. The entire event is contained to the school grounds and gym. This is a great, safe, family-friendly event.
The Men’s Club is an organization made up of gentlemen, some who are fathers, step-fathers, uncles or grandfathers of current and former St. Christopher School students, many who are former students themselves, and others who have no connection to the school other than the fact they are parishioners, and it is their parish school. The Men’s Club motto is “Serving God and Community”. Throughout the year, the Men’s Club fulfills this motto by assisting other parish organizations with their events and fundraisers and by donating funds to those organizations.
St. Christopher does not have a traditional parish fair. For over 20 years, the St. Christopher’s Men’s Club has produced the Fall Fest with assistance from the school and many other parish organizations. By all accounts, the Fall Fest has always been a huge success. The Fall Fest is the biggest fundraiser of the year, both in scale of production and money raised. It is also the largest gathering of the parish, and school families, where everyone in our parish can renew acquaintances and share in the fellowship of our Christian and Catholic Community.
This year, the Fall Fest will be the great event we have always known it to be, with live music, great food and drink, and several activities to entertain the children. This year, Fall Fest will be bigger and better than ever, with new attractions for the children and a large T.V. for all fans to watch the L.S.U. and/or other college football games.
The success of Fall Fest depends upon the cooperation of all parents and parishioners, and SCMC respectfully requests your help. There are several opportunities for all parents and parishioners to volunteer and participate in the production of this year’s Fall Fest. The Men’s Club could use your help. To volunteer, contact the Men's Club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because this is a family event, we hope to see many families there. All tickets are pre-sold. No tickets will be sold at the gate. For the safety of all children, no tickets will be sold to children without the purchase of an adult ticket. In addition, no child can be admitted without being accompanied by an adult. Also, for the safety of all attendees, no footballs, frisbees, etc. will be allowed at Fall Fest. Any balls or other items being thrown by children will be confiscated.
Please come and participate for the betterment of your parish and school. Help us Serve God and Community.
St. Christopher Men’s Club
