     “A special thanks to Rob Schollmeyer, Wayne Trachsel, Mary Jane Starke, and Teresa Skaggs for coming to the fundraising meeting and their willingness to help coordinate the upcoming Seafood Buffets. They are scheduled for March 21 and April 4. If you know of any conflicts on those days, please let Rob know immediately. If you weren’t on the work list last year, or want a change, please notify Rob, or we’ll have them out much as in the past years again. We count on everyone to help out and make them a success once again, as these have become our major fundraisers for the year.”...Fr. Dave
