October 11th Bake Sale for the Helping Hands Food Pantry
A special Thank You to St. Augustine parishioners Carmen Aristy and Milan Habel, to Ms. Deyanira Fernandez and their many friends who baked and helped sell pastries at the Bake Sale on Sunday, October 11th, to help raise money for the Helping Hands Food Pantry. On sale was the popular Dominican pastry pan de maiz, together with muffins, cookies and other baked delights. The bake sale was a big success and raised $500 to buy food for those in need. Many thanks for your kind efforts.
Families, Fathers & Children Halloween Party
On Sat., Oct. 24th, Families, Fathers & Children had our annual Halloween Party, for clients and for children from St. Augustine’s. Many thanks to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make our Halloween Party a success.
If you hadn’t come and spent hours doing everything from setting up chairs to cooking food to helping kids do arts and crafts, we couldn’t have done it. And special thanks to our faithful volunteer, James Palmaro, who led the children in interactive music, which as usual was the high point of the party. Thanks to: Andrea Maldonado, Cindy Cruz, Serena Henderson, Autumn Haywood, Debra Bailey, Mary Williams, Bob Biegen, Tom Wargo, Barry Polrusky, James Palmaro & Ede Fox.
