Some Info - January 2016

posted Jan 8, 2016, 9:05 AM by Maryann Stradczuk
Hello Ladies!

Happy New Year!  We have a couple of things coming up soon and I want you to have the details on them.

Fr. Ted has asked Columbiettes to set up for the Epiphany Dinner.  So we know it will look good!!  We have chosen Saturday (1/9) at noon to accomplish the task.  I'm going to assume we set up for 130 people.  I think that the total has been running around 105 the past few years.  Also, Fr. Ted requested four separate tables for the food.  Let's use the same format as we used for the Ladies Tea with the food tables interspersed with the seating tables.  Having them separate will mean no lines, no waiting.  I like it a lot.  Then two or three tables for desserts - perhaps by the stage.  I think we can still use the poinsettia centerpieces, but I will leave that to those of you who set up.  Please consider giving up a bit of time on Saturday to make our Church Hall look good for the Epiphany Dinner!    

Sheila asked if we could get the paper goods and tablecloths and submit the bill to the Parish.  Donna, would you be able to take care of this?  You know what Fr. Ted likes.  If you can't do it, please let me know ASAP.  Vicki is ready for the assist on this task.

The Knights have been asked to clean up afterward and Vicki said that some of the St. Catherine's parishioners will be helping them.  

I hope to see you all at the Epiphany Dinner!  It will be this Sunday (1/10) at 2:00pm.  The Parish is supplying the roast beef and all who come should bring a side dish or dessert.  

You may have noticed that we did not have our Columbiettes Christmas Party this year.  I spoke with a few members and we agreed that it would be much more enjoyable after Christmas.  We have picked Friday, January 22nd at 6:30pm.  Lisa Lavado has volunteered her house for the party.  Her address is 2 Haley Meadow Road in Griswold, which is off Geer Road.  Pat Metzler and Leona Minski need a ride to and fro, if you can help out.  

If you have adopted a member, please call her.  I heard from one adoptee that she hasn't been called for things that are going on.  Here's a reminder of who adopted who:
  • Ceil Roberge - Jackie Connelly
  • Vicki Rosich - Kathy Luty
  • Vicki Rosich - Glenda Marion
  • Claire Hull - Rosemary Robitaille
  • Paula Nowakowski - Joanne Belisle
  • Paula Nowakowski - Ann Leffler (perhaps Dottie Rex would like to assume this responsibility?)
  • Maryann Stradczuk - Kristi Surratt (nights and weekends)
  • Becky Jusseaume - Tara Ingraham
  • Terri Craig - Therese Garguis
Thanks for caring for your sister Columbiettes who don't have e-mail!  Email is an amazingly convenient way to communicate, but it's not for everyone.  This helps them be included.  

I will add this information to our website.  I hope to see you all on Sunday!
