OCTOBER 25, 2015
The sun shone on Family Fun Fair 2015 making possible a comfortable and wonderful
time for all who attended.
Staff and volunteers from parish committees and parishioners at large supplied the
muscle to mount and execute the event. Holy Child is grateful to them all.
Many generous people contributed to the Raffle Baskets. This year an honorable
mention must be made of Mr. Sal Torre whose fantastic effort in gathering goods and
gifts from local concerns graced the Raffle Tables with many an appealing item. Sal’s
remarkable initiative and involvement resonated perfectly with the cooperation of all
who dedicated themselves to our parish activity.
The major donors who sponsored booths and rides on “The Midway” are especially
thanked by Holy Child.
