  • Craft Fair a Huge Success!

    Posted by Siobhan Murphy on 1/11/2019


    We are delighted to report that our 37th Annual Saint Joseph School Christmas Craft Fair raised $33,857.74!

    We offer our heartfelt thanks to all of the many people who contributed to the success of the fair!  Jenny Brown and Michelle Minasian were terrific co-chairs and leaders.  All of the Craft Fair Committee Members spent countless hours preparing for and running the fair.  Many of our families, teachers and staff made contributions, whether financial or by volunteering their time.  So many of our parishioners were very generous with their contributions and raffle ticket purchases.

    Jenny and Michelle said it best in their report to the Fundraising Committee with these terrific results:

    "This is definitely a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved for the benefit of our children and beloved school.  And a testament to our parish family who lovingly support us."

    We are truly blessed.  Many thanks and congratulations to all!
