Yard/Bake Sale Fundraiser
A recent fundraiser held on September 12, 2020, by the St. George & St. Archangel Michael Church Choir was a great success. A big thank you to all those that donated, contributed baked goods, and volunteered their time.
Special thanks to Father Milorad and Popadija for supporting this event. The storage trailer Father Milorad was able to obtain for us was invaluable. Another huge “Thank you” to the Yard/Bake Sale Committee: Georgina Kiraly, Mike & Cookie Borich, Slavica Malbassa, Rada Vujic for working with me to organize and deliver this event. A special thanks to Rick Serada, Danny & Mara Puhar, Judy & Misha Djurdjevic, Joanne Vasic, John Mrmak, Marianne Borich, Anne Kajganic, Evica Lazic, Lillian Mirovich and Milos Vujic.
Thank you all for your dedication to St. George & St. Archangel Michael Church. Your compassion and kindness towards others is an inspiration to all members of our congregation! It was a wonderful opportunity for so many to work together toward a common goal:
