Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
It’s CARD PARTY TIME!!! I know everybody is filled with excitement and anticipation. It is not only our largest fundraiser, but one of our biggest social
gatherings as well. The Rock Card Party goes back over 50 years. It has been held at The Chase and other hotels, our own parish (a bit of a tight fit for those who remember those days) and for the last decade or so, at Cardinal Ritter Prep. I am so grateful for their very generous hospitality.
I trust you have made your reservations. If you haven’t, please do so as soon as possible, so that you have your choice of venue: the gym where all the excitement is or the bingo room, which is uncharacteristically quiet for a Rock gathering. If you’ve never been to one of our Card Parties, let me explain one thing, you don’t have to play cards. In fact, most people don’t. Some do of course, everything from solitaire to rummy to bridge. Some bring board games and others just come to
socialize with family and friends.
Since this is our primary fundraiser I am asking every adult parishioner to:
Finally, come and have fun!
I truly want to thank Kendra for willingly accepting the challenge to head up the Card Party Committee, as well as the entire committee for all the work you are doing. There is an awful lot of work that is needed to pull all this together and have a successful event. Last year’s event was the most lucrative on record and a great time. If we all do our part then there is no doubt that it will be another big success.
In the Redeemer,
