UA-8412995-1 The Southport Globe: 2014 ANNUAL ST. ANTHONY'S PICNIC SUNDAY, JULY 13TH 2:30PM TO 6:30 PM

Wednesday, July 9, 2014


Admission $3
In addition to the food, fun and dancing, this picnic is an important fundraiser for our parish and for the Merton Center. As in the past years, we will donate 25% of the proceeds to The Thomas Merton Center’s food pantry. Please pray for good weather and please consider volunteering some of your time or resources to this event. Here are some ways to help:
• Donate some time—Volunteers are the heart of the picnic. There are many areas in need of help. Sign up online at the parish website or call Her Royal Majesty, Marcy Vidoli, Queen of Volunteers, at 203-259-6561 Come and spend a little time with other parishioners, raise a little money, have a little fun! Thank you!
• Buy your way in—Tickets are $3 each and include eligibility for several door prizes. If you have not received your tickets or would like more, please call the parish rectory.
• Take a lobster to dinner—An annual attraction at the picnic is the lobster dinner (potato, corn-on the- cob, and coleslaw to go along with crustacĂ© du jour!) There are limited number of lobsters available, but you can reserve one by purchasing ahead ($14 single, $22 twin). Look for the table outside in front of church this weekend.
• Pitch a tent—Give us a hand setting up some tents or making a final sort through the White Elephant items this Tuesday evening, July 8, at 7pm. The more hands the merrier! Thank you!
• Drop off your pearls—We are collecting old/new/broken jewelry for the annual picnic. Please enclose your name and phone number with your donation so anything valuable can be returned to you and either call Mary Anne Sulik (203) 877-6573 for a pickup or drop off your jewelry on the back porch of the rectory.
• Drop off your old treasures—We are collecting treasures to sell in the White Elephant Booth (just about anything EXCEPT electrical items, cribs, car seats, large furniture, clothing, or sports/exercise equipment). Items may be dropped in front of the middle garage.
• Take a yarn for a spin—and drive it over and drop it off. We’re talking about all the yarn and fabric you bought to make that Prom gown and now is just sitting in a bag in your dining room making you feel guilty. Donate it and we’ll resell it to quilters and knitters and crafters who are looking for a bargain.
• Bake a batch of brownies—or any kind of homemade goodies (breads, muffins, cookies, etc.) for the Baked Goods Booth. Drop them off in the basement meeting room of the church next weekend. Please remember that, in the heat of July, the less frosting, the better! Thank you for your great spirit and tremendous help!
