Parish Picnic

Parish Picnic - Sunday, July 30, 2017

Our Annual Parish Picnic will be held "Under the Trees" in the grassy area just south of the church building (where the Outdoor Stations of the Cross are located). There will be opportunities for fellowship and fun with some new activities to help build community here at St. Joseph. We are expanding the Bake-Off to include a Jr. Bake-Off for all kids 17 years old and under. We're adding another inflatable called the "Obstacle Course". We're always on the look-out for new sponsors of this annual event. If you know someone who would like to sponsor the picnic, please contact Larry Cadorniga at 360-823-2829 or email.

Recap of 2016 Parish Picnic

The annual parish picnic was a great success on Sunday, July 31, 2016. This year it moved to a new location in the grassy area behind the church. Large overhanging trees provided lots of shade for families eating at tables, kids playing games and kept the overall temperature cool. One new addition to the event this year was the bake-off contest where parishioners could test their best treats. Brownies, cookies and bar cookies were the three categories for the contest. Not only did the judges get to enjoy the treats but all the sweets were served as dessert for the enjoyment of everyone.

Congratulations to all of our Bake-Off winners!

Cookie - 1st Place - Krista Bryant; 2nd Place - Averie Fleck; 3rd Place - Chris Sneider

Brownie - 1st Place - Dolores Monroe; 2nd Place - Edie Arambula; 3rd Place - Ashlyn Aikin

Bar Cookie - 1st Place - Colleen Sneider; 2nd Place - Arambula family; 3rd Place - Emily and Victoria Shamrell

Molina Healthcare set up a booth where anyone could spin a wheel and name different fruits and vegetables depending on a category and win a prize. Their most popular attraction was a stationary bike that you could pedal to power a blender and make a healthy smoothie. Overall the parish picnic was a wonderful afternoon filled with many laughs and fun for all.
