A Great Big


To All Of Our Supporters!

Thank you once again for attending and supporting our annual St. Joseph FunFest. Although the final numbers are not in, our FunFest was a success and we enjoyed beautiful weather, despite the rainfall in other parts of the county.  Our parish counts on this fund raiser in the annual budget and every dollar helps significantly!

A very special thank you to all the wonderful people who donated their time and talents. Again this year there was an outstanding crew and without their help there would not be a St. Joseph FunFest. God's spirit was evident from the beginning with planning, with envelope stuffing and with printing of our flyers and letters; with set up and preparation, to staffing all the games and events, and then ending with tear down and clean up.  Thanks to Janice Zimdars who did a spectacular job of getting Signup Genius up and running and made our volunteer process very manageable.   A very special THANK YOU from the rest of the committee to Mark Moen for his 11th year (of a 50-year minimum) of leadership and unending efforts before, during, and after our parish festival.

Thanks again to each person who volunteered their time, talent and treasures. Most importantly, thank you for attending and supporting our parish FunFest. God bless you all!  From your St. Joseph FunFest Committee members: Mark Moen - Chairman; Doug Young - Sound System/Fellowship; Karen Schuh & Sue Bucholtz - Food Purchases; Aaron Barnickel - Corn/Brats; Julie Myers & Donna McLeod - Prize Purchasing/Distribution; Tom Tomasik - Finance; Janice Zimdars - PR and Advertising/Volunteer SignUp; Lynn Barnickel and crew - Rummage; Michele Whitehouse, Corporate Sponsorship.
