A Magical Evening

Amazing magic was part of the evening.

Magic was afoot on Saturday evening of June 3 at the parish’s Spring Fling. Thank you to all who donated food and beverages, who gave of their time and gifts, and to those offering dinners so that the fund of one evening can continue. We are grateful to our younger members who worked as servers, and wasn’t the magician amazing? To all who contributed in any way. We raised approximately $4000, and as is our custom, 10% of that will go towards mission in the community beyond us. This year, the 10% will be shared with Harvest on Vine Emergency Food Pantry, the Harvard-Kent Leadership and Scholarship Partnership, and the BSAFE program at St. Lucas/San Lucas Church in Chelsea.
