Fishing with St. James

I want to thank our parishioners and their crews who participated in the project; Larry Nickman, Dan Buser and Shane Roach.

Carl & Diane Kucera, owners of Country Catering, prepared all of the turkey for us this year and donations from our Oktoberfest letter covered that cost. A listing of drawing...  continue reading
