From the Pastor…Fr. McHugh

We thank everyone who helped make the Good Shepherd Parish Festival a great success. Our leadership team was exceptionally adroit in organizing the volunteers, the food, drinks, etc. The entertainment was well-received, and people really enjoyed the fireworks, which, though quite expensive, were very impressive. Our only “dead spot” of the festival seemed to be the 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM time on Sunday which we can alter next year. Perhaps, we should set a $20 or $25 minimum on tricky trays. We will have diet soda available for the beginning of the festival next year. Again, we will have the festival on the second weekend of July. I thank all who acted in leadership capacities for the festival, volunteer workers, sponsors, those who donated tricky trays and baked goods, purchased raffle tickets, set up and took down the tents and stands, and all who patronized the event. The festival was not only an important fundraiser for the parish, but it also provided a good deal of enjoyment to many people. We were blessed with good weather and likely benefited from the many rainy weekends that preceded the festival. It seems people, in general, were ripe for a festival and we attracted many people who attended a Good Shepherd event for the first time. Hopefully, the good times they had will lead to their returning next year.
