Annual Parish Picnic was Great!
We had a great day at our beautiful Toddhall Retreat Center on Sunday, May 31. We began with a celebration of the Eucharist in the St. Cecelia Chapel, which worked very well and allowed some folks to see parts of Toddhall they had never seen before!
Following the service we had big, juicy hamburgers, hot dogs and brats (grilled every year by George Schneider) and Tom Miller provided all the fixings, chips, and paper products. People brought salads, potatoes, fruit and melon, cookies and brownies. The weather was perfect – not to hot, no rain – and everyone enjoyed visiting with each other.
We had a (sort-of) softball game, with little children – and adults! – who had never even held a bat before joining in. Onlookers cheered and helped little ones find the bases, Ann Miller documented the event with her drawings, Abby and Claire Skaff blew bubbles to “confuse the other team”, three-year-old Charles Davidson ran from base to base to pitchers mound to base throughout the entire afternoon, and there was lots of laughter.
Thank you, God, for our parish family!
