Nite at the Races–Thank You!

After 8 years of Nite at the Races, there is no surprise in knowing how generous our parishioners and community are.   Whether you are a horse owner, donate to our raffles and auction, participate in “betting” on that favorite horse, purchase raffle tickets and auction items, or volunteering to work or bake you are what makes this event a success.  This year we are able to contribute the profit towards Rectory and Administration Office improvements.  Pick up a Nite at the Races flyer at Church for a list of winners and donors.  We encourage you to support those businesses that contributed the wonderful items made available throughout the night.  On behalf of the 2017 Race Committee, THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible.
