2018 Parish Lawn Fete

The 2018 Lawn Fete is scheduled for the weekend of July 20-22nd. SO much help is needed to pull off this large scale event! Whether you are part of the school or the parish - or both! - please check back often to find out ways you can offer needed assistance to make this weekend a financial success. This is our parish's BIGGEST fundraiser every year, and our school benefits in a big way as well, because of our generous, supportive parish. 

Every year, we have many hard working volunteers coordinate this event, but it hasn't been enough! We need more help, and as a school family, we'd like to step up and help to make things run a little easier for all those involved.

Kids' Tent

The Committee is asking for our school's help in a specific way this year, asking us to coordinate and run the Kids' Tent. This tent will feature games, fun and prizes for all the kids in attendance, and it is a beloved attraction of the Lawn Fete each year.

Please see below for ways to help the Kids' Tent, including links to the upcoming online Sign Up Genius Form for volunteer tasks and times! Even if you cannot make it to help during the weekend, there is much preparation that can be done beforehand, so please check the form and this page (soon!) for information regarding the items and spots needed. Many hands make light work, and it is our goal this year to find as many parents to help with this endeavor so that no one parent feels overwhelmed.

Please message Melissa Burger (HSA President), Jennifer Livermore at the School Office, our Principal Jonna Johnson, or our Pastoral Administrator Debbie Brown to ask any questions or offer general help! You may also call the School Office at (716) 937-9483 or the Rectory at (716) 937-6959. More specific information on needs will be posted here ASAP.
