September will be the Second Annual Picnic for St. Martin in the Fields at St. Matthews Grove on Nuangola Rd. It is just down from the corner by the Church. Bring a covered dish or dessert to share and your own soft drinks. The Church will provide the hot dogs and hamburgers. There will be games for old and young, lots of good food, and fun for all!
Future plans for September at St. Martin in the Fields include the FIRST Mountain Top Kite Festival on September 28th. This will be a fantastic event for “children” of all ages and the first one to be held in our area. Each child can sign up to build a kite and then be helped to learn how to fly it. There will be a kite flying exhibition and a DJ. Mark you calendar now so as not to miss out on this experience.
October 19th is our annual bazaar featuring fabulous gift baskets, a bake sale featuring our Welsh cookies, the BOOK NOOK (new books arriving almost daily), rummage sale, and plenty of great food. We are planning on opening the BOOK NOOK weekly in the fall. You will be able to stock up for those dreary winter days of snow and ice. We have books for all interests. Watch for the opening date.
Father Dan Fitzsimmons is planning on teaching classes in knitting or quilt making this fall depending on which generates the most interest. If you are interested in one or both of these classes lets us know by calling Janeann at 570-868-6895.
