This week begins the last minute “rush” to get the first Annual Fall Festival set up and ready to go for Saturday, September 29th, at 10:00am out on our fields through Sunday, September 30th at 6:00pm.
A remarkable volunteer committee began this opportunity for raising significant funds for the school, replacing a twice a week BINGO operation that ran for several years, which likewise raised significant funds for the school over the years, but, in the latter years it was wearing out committee members, volunteers, and producing a dwindling net profit.
As BINGO did, this FESTIVAL will bring in some alternate sources of revenue and not rely solely on the IHM school families. We invite all parishioners, school families, PSR families, alumni, the community of Cuyahoga Falls, and its surrounding neighbors to enjoy a two-day community event loaded with entertainment on the stage, vendors selling their various products, carnival games, rock wall for kids, tents evangelizing our church programs, and glorious food!
Admission each day is $10.00 for an adult, $5.00 for a child (ages 5-17). To buy entrance tickets in advanced go online to https://one.bidpal.net/ihm/welcome or stop by the Parish Office during normal business hours. A ticket is needed both days – Saturday & Sunday.
I do look to all of you parishioners to joyfully partner with this effort and attend some portion of the FALL FESTIVAL.
Likewise, I ask for these four things from you! Perhaps you can do at least two out of the four.
- Your prayers for NO RAIN and NO ACCIDENTS during the event!
- Purchase one $25.00 ticket to win a 27 month CAR LEASE or a $7,500.00 cash prize. Buy them at the doors of the Church TODAY or stop by the Parish Office during normal business hours.
- Bid on ONE item at the SILENT auction with every intent to be the top bidder! To do so, go online to https://one.bidpal.net/ihm/browse/all.
- Volunteer a two hour time when you attend the FALL FESTIVAL. To request a volunteer time period:
