A form will be sent home with each child on Monday. We are asking each family to try their best to sell two memberships.
This is our only major parish fundraiser in addition to the Parish Picnic and Turtle Soup Supper, which were both replaced by the Drive-Thru dinners this year. The proceeds from the 250 club are designated to an account and then used for parish/school activities that require funding. This avoids the creation of additional fundraisers throughout the year for the parish/school. Our goal is to acquire 250 memberships. Please help us achieve this goal! Thank you!
To all our Wonderful School Families,
Please remember to fill out your stewardship hours to the office. Remember all Stewardship Families are required 40 hours of volunteering throughout the year. Last spring, because of Covid, any remaining hours needed were forgiven.
We have many opportunities this year for volunteering in and out of the school day. The volunteer link is on the St. Nicholas Website (I Volunteer). Please remember we have many openings for the upcoming Chicken dinner Oct. 12th. including set up all week and cleanup afterwards.
