Despite competition from a rainy night, some cool evenings, and two Penguin hockey playoff games, the week of Spring-a-Rama turned out to be another great success. That is due in no small measure to the amazing army of volunteers: those who stepped forward and spent hours of their time working in the various booths ... and to the donors of home- baked goods ... those who purchased raffle tickets ... the tireless energy of those working behind the scenes in the White Elephant ... the nightly money counters ... the crew who set up booths and took them down on the last night ... and those who stood for hours-on-end making, icing, and selling those delicious Spring-a-Rama donuts!
My thanks to each and every single person who was involved in any way in the work of our annual parish festival. All of you prove yourselves to be most generous in the sharing of your time, talent and treasure.
Special mention of gratitude and appreciation is due to some individuals: Mary Ann McPaul who co-ordinated and chaired the work of the White Elephant; Joliene Battistone who oversaw everything related to the food available during the week; Linda Bechtol and the entire donut crew; Gary Remlinger and his coordination of evening entertainment; Glenn Breier and Larry Parker for their attention to maintenance, lighting, sound, and daily clean-up; Catherine Soltis, Margie O.Leary and Janet Mahoney for their work each evening with the money counters; and a great big THANK YOU to Chris and Patty DiCarlo who served as the Chair Couple and kept everything moving throughout the six days of Spring-a-Rama. A job well-done by everyone!
