Come Join the Lawn Crew

February 28, 2011 by Denise in blog


Spring is just around the corner.  Joining the Lawn Crew can be a very rewarding Ministry.  Having a clean well kept property lets our local community and passers by know that Saint Therese cares about being an active part of the local landscape.   For example;  Last year Saint Therese had the good fortune of being neighborly by lending our lawn to be the  practice site  for the Special Olympics from Wauwatosa.   Having the lawn well cared for by our volunteers helped to make this possible.  We would very much like to do this again with your help and a  few hours of your time we can accomplish great things. You can be a good neighbor by volunteering 3hrs one weekend per month to help cut & trim the lawn both Here and at the Parish house .  For more details Please contact Building Services via the web site, email or phone.

A huge thank you to Tom Ratkowski and all the performers who participated in the “Yet Another Pretty Good Variety Show, Going Fourth”. Your talent and creativity are amazing. Thank you to the behind the scenes stage workers. You’re a great team! Thank you to the audience and parish members who shared their yummy treats and snacks, and thank you to the parishioners who helped set up, serve and clean up. Your helping hands made the show and its intermission a warm and pleasant good time for all.
Thank you to those who attended and who have shared their positive feedback. We all had a great time, and we’re glad that you enjoyed yourselves, too.

St. Therese Parish is hosting its first Harvest Craft Fair on the weekend of November 7th/8th. We have filled the hall with 26 of the areas crafters, and they are all looking forward to selling their wonderful handmade items. Please join us for this free event, for a great fundraiser and friend-raiser. We have many beautiful handmade raffle items as well, for which you can purchase a chance to win. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. A portion of the proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Hunger Task Force. In fact, if you bring and donate 2 non-perishable food items, you will receive a free raffle ticket. (Limit 2 free tickets per person.)

Concessions will be available all weekend, including donuts and coffee on Saturday morning. There will be a separate room where you may sit and relax away from the bustle of the fair while you enjoy your food.

Entertainment Books will also be on sale all weekend. A Milwaukee-area edition is only $35 ($5 off the cover price!) and you can take it home with you and start saving immediately. Perhaps you have relatives out-of-town, or perhaps your family has a “summer home” in some other part of the country? You will be able to order an Entertainment book from any region of the country for anywhere from $25-$40. Canada and Puerto Rico editions are also available. Payment is due on purchase, so please plan ahead! Checks will be accepted for Entertainment Books only. Remember, they make great Christmas gifts!

This is a completely indoor, handicap-accessible event, with ample free parking. We hope to see you there!

Now, we still need plenty of volunteers in order to make this event a successful fundraiser for the parish. If you are willing and able to volunteer a few hours of your time on the weekend of November 6th-8th, please call Courtney in the Parish Office to discuss your availability. We especially need help for set up and clean up.

We are also in need of some food items for our concession stand. We need cookies/bars/brownies, cans of diet soda, individual-size bags of chips, shredded cheese and shredded lettuce. Please, shredded only. If you are able to donate any of these items, please bring them to the Parish Office any time during business hours next week, or on November 7th from 6:00-8:00pm.

We are looking forward to this event, and we believe it will be quite successful, but we need your help to pull it off. If you have any questions, please email the Craft Fair Coordinators with any questions you may have. Thank you for anything you can do!
