Thank you for supporting church picnic

Editor, the Advocate:

On behalf of the parishioners of St. Theresa Catholic Church of LaSalle, we want to express our appreciation to all who made our annual church picnic Oct. 20 such a success. It was so nice to see many of our neighboring church members come out to support us. We thank the news media, radio stations and churches for advertising our event. We want to thank all the donors for our raffle and auction, the banks, businesses, individuals and parish members and those who bid and purchased them. We also appreciate and thank everyone who helped in some way, either by baking cakes and other goodies or by working both the day of and days and weeks before in preparation for the picnic.

Without the participation and donations, help and cooperation of our members and nonparishioners, a small parish like ours could not operate.

Thank you, and may God bless you all!
