Back to School Bash featuring a Low Country Shrimp Boil

We’re excited to announce our upcoming Low Country Shrimp Boil on Sunday, August 30th following the 11:00am mass.  We’ll begin in the Fleming Center immediately following mass.  The event will be hosted by the Cathedral Weekday preschool and the Knights of Columbus.  There will be great food, music, beverages, and games for kids.  If crustaceans are too creepy for you, there will be burger and dogs.  The price is $10 per person with a $25 cap per family.

Preparations are being made now so, please mark you calendars and plan to attend.  As with any fundraiser, we need your help to make this event a big success.  Please invite any and every parishioner and their families you see.  This will be an outstanding opportunity to demonstrate the fun spirit and faithful service our council and school are noted for.  We will be passing around signup sheets for volunteers at the August 12th council meeting to: 1) pass out event flyers after masses 2) decorate/setup/cleanup at the party, and 3) cook and serve food and beverages 4) work the kid game stations. 

If you can’t make the meeting to sign up to volunteer, please contact Dave Johnson at 615-585-3675 or to do so.
