FLORIDA — Almost 400 parishioners from St. Joseph’s and St. Stanislaus churches attended for this year’s Parish Picnic held on Sunday, Sept. 8.

The picnic began under clear, blue skies with an outdoor Mass at noon celebrated by pastor, the Rev. Joseph Tokarczyk.

The Mass was followed by the traditional barbecue; each family brought a favorite dessert to share. In addition to great food, there was music.

More than 50 baskets and gift certificates were raffled; the proceeds went to St. Joseph’s Religious Education Program.

The children had a delightful time playing a variety of carnival-type games and face-painting; Binky the Clown provided entertainment for all ages.

“We would like to extend much appreciation and thanks to the members of the Parish Activities Committee, as well as the many other vendors and individuals who assisted with the picnic, for all of their time and effort spent to make this wonderful day possible,” the organizers wrote in their press release describing the picnic.
