150th Anniversary Celebration Meeting
Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Courtyard Marriott by the Outlet Mall
We will need to discuss any areas not covered and determine if they can be covered, or if they need to be eliminated from the plan. Things are progressing nicely and there is alot of excitement in the air!
Brochures have been mailed. We have mailed approximately 3,200 to date. Thank you for helping with the stuffing, sealing, stamping & sorting of this huge mail-out!
If you are interested in selling any of the car raffle tickets, please come by the St. Francis Office and pick up a few.
Mrs. McMinn would be happy to have you help sell tickets!
If you would like to check with your Pastor and see if you can sell tickets after Mass that would be a great way to help as well. We can provide a large board with the raffle information on it.
A few reminders of upcoming dates:
