August 28, 2014 - garden totes
Bingo is behind during St. Anthony’s. Not in a form of a weekly fund-raiser for a propagandize as it was for many years. This time, a quip is a brief two-day party venue incorporated into a annual Harvest Festival set for a weekend of Sept. 20-21.
The games, that will be open both days of a festival, is usually one of a few changes that will set this year’s family-friendly festival detached from prior years’ offerings. For one thing, left will be a live auction that customarily followed a outside Mass on Sunday. In a place will be “big galas,” something that is still being finalized.
But auctions will continue to sojourn a partial of a festival, a one vital fund-raiser for a bishopric and a school. Both live and wordless auctions will still be there, despite underneath a opposite venue from a outside eventuality that festival revelers have famous it in years – decades, in fact. Auctions will be a partial of a galas, pronounced Lois Wiedenhoeft. She and father Keith are replaying their purpose as festival chairpersons for a second time this year.
“It seems like other parishes had been doing that. People wish something different,” Wiedenhoeft said, explaining a festival’s depart from tradition.
The “generation of people who used to do that (live auction) – a comparison era – are not there anymore,” she said.
The auctions have “done good in prior years, though a people who did a live auction quit and nobody else wants to do it,” she serve explained. “We have to change a (festival) format and make it accessible to all people, strech a wider assembly (by presenting) a whole opposite venue.”
Except for those few changes, a festival will have a same party smorgasbord – from food booths charity a whole array of culinary tastes from Filipino to Mexican, Portuguese, Italian and a tack American food fare, to children’s games, a used-book sale, a farmer’s marketplace where uninformed vegetables will be on sale, continual party on theatre featuring internal talents, a and a drink garden for adults only.
