A successful picnic

The Catholic Ministry to the Sick and Aged recently sponsored its 38th annual picnic for the eldery from the surrounding five counties. More than 200 residents and their caregivers from 16 long-term facilities, and the volunteers enjoyed a festive day with a hot dog and hamburger lunch with all the trimmings, including ice cream, and dancing and inter-generational fellowship.

Our thanks to the youth who helped set up, serve and clean up and the CWV members and auxiliary who helped cook. Special thanks to the Knights of Columbus groups and the St. Clair County Junior Service Club for their generous donations. It was a memorable occasion for those who attended and for those who donated their time to make this event so special.
