Fall Festival

Thank You…

Our 2018 Fall Festival was a huge success! Not only did God smile on us with beautiful weather, he also brought out the best in people and I truly believe we came together as One Community Growing in Christ. Please watch the wonderful video showing the highlights of our event.

There are so many people to thank this year… Thank you to our priests (and their many talents), St. Matthew parish and school staffs, and the many dedicated super volunteers! Thank you for being flexible -when we asked for more than the norm, moved you to a different position or you stayed to help out because you saw we were shorthanded. I would especially like to thank the incredible committee of coordinators. Your energy, enthusiasm and hard work paid off.

A special thank all of the 81 Fall Festival chairs and their committees who came before us. They created and built our festival throughout the years and without them our success would not be possible.

Thank you to all the many donors who generously gave to our efforts...especially Longbottom Coffee & Tea Co for their donation of coffee for both the cafe and the dinner; 7Eleven (25th and Cornell) for their numerous donations; and to the neighbors of St. Matthew Parish who graciously allowed us to use their parking areas.

The table below shows comparisons over the last 10 years, but please keep in mind that there have been many changes over the years so some comparisons are not exactly across the board. The report will give you a general idea of how we've grown.
