The Brazilian parishioners at I.C. are having their annual festival “Festa Junina” at Ward Park on June 15, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
This is a big event for our Brazilian brothers and sisters, and they raise a bundle of money for the church each year. This year, the raffle proceeds will go to the fire restoration fund.
They have reached out to us and we are helping them in two areas:
(1) They are having a marvelous raffle. First prize is a 2018 Kia Optima. Tickets are $25 a piece. I will have some on hand at our June 11th meeting, so bring your wallets.
(2) They have asked for a few knights to help out during the festival. I don’t know exactly what they want, but we discussed things like staffing a table under a canopy to greet people, hand out water bottles, sell drinks, sell more raffle tickets, etc. I explicitly told them we do not sing or dance or entertain, and we are limited in our ability to lift heavy objects.
I split it up into two shifts, 4:00 to 7:00 and 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. If you want, you can sign up twice for the whole time.
And did I mention, they have great food.
