The Church Slava celebration on Sunday July 22 was a great success with approximately 200 people in attendance. The weather was not so good and it started to rain very hard just about the time Church services were over so we were very crowded inside of the Church, but it helped to inspire everyone to discuss the need for a larger Church facility. The weather turned better in the afternoon and the Sun came out and it seemed from all the good comments that everyone had a good time. I want to thank everyone that helped to make our Church Slava program a success, and we had many volunteers on Saturday to help clean up around the Church to get ready for the Sunday services. We have a great group of people that volunteer on a regular basis whenever we need help and on behalf of the Church Board we want to thank all of you.

Proslava nase Crkvene Slave je bila veoma uspjesna. Okupilo se oko 200 nasih parohijana. Vrijeme nam nije bas islo na ruku jer je bas kad smo zavrsili sa sluzbom i bili spremni da izadjemo vani poceo veliki pljusak, tako da smo ostali unutra sto je dalo priliku da komentarisemo potrebu za vecom Crkvenom zgradom. Kako je vrijeme odmicalo kisa je jenjavala i sa prvim zracima sunca raspolozenje je naglo poraslo, tako da se nakon rucka odigralo i tradicionalno kolo i vecina ljudi je otisla zadovoljna organizacijom i provodom. Zelim da se zahvalim svima koji su doprinjeli da organizacija proslave bude sto laksa i na sto vecem nivou. Zadovoljan sam odzivom volontera koji su nam pomogli u subotu da ocistimo i pripremimo nas posjed. Cinjenica je da se formirala jedna grupa volontera koja nam pomaze svaki put kad nesto treba, te u ime Crkvenog Odbora im se veoma zahvaljujem.
Predjsjednik Crkvenog Odbora
