Thank you to everyone who came last Sunday to our Winter Carnival!  I think everyone had a fun time…young and old! And a special thank you to all the volunteers who worked.  It could not have happened without you!

Prize winners were: Sadie Hilbing, Aubrey Waterkotte, Hailey Terwelp, Kacie Stegman, Lanie Fesler, Kinslee Carpenter, Jennifer Holman, Vincent Edmondson, Oliver Vale and Ryan Collins.  Also 10 lucky ones received gift cards to Scotties!  The evening was a great start to our Catholic Schools Week!
