St. Gabriel Picnic Cancellation Announcement:
Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the Corona Virus (social distancing, large crowd gatherings, sanitation, etc…) the picnic committee sadly announces the cancellation of the St. Gabriel Picnic scheduled for Saturday June 13th, 2020. All presale purchases will be refunded. Please be patient as we work through those logistics. While our customary gathering on the second Saturday in June won't be happening, the committee does intend to reschedule a picnic like event in the fall. Please be on the look out for details later this summer. The picnic is about more than money, but we can't overlook that it does account for a significant portion of our parish revenue. If you are in a position, please consider donating the money typically spent on ride bracelets, game tickets, pull-tabs, dinners, beer, etc. Your continued support of the parish is critical during these unprecedented times. Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe.
The St. Gabriel Picnic Committee
The following is informational only and WILL NOT take place this year.
Our Parish Picnic will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2020. This wonderful event is an opportunity for our community to come together for family fun with a parade, rides, games, food and music. Additionally, the picnic is an important fundraiser for the parish contributing funds to support parish and school operations. The Picnic is not sponsored by a specific parish organization but is coordinated by a committee of volunteers that lead different aspects of the event.
At this time, the committee has a number of opportunities for leadership positions. Please consider an opportunity to contribute in a big way to your parish community.
We are actively looking for the following position:
Picnic Finance Director - this position involves coordinating/monitoring day of cash management and collection.
Set Up Coordinator – coordinating volunteers during Friday set up
Clean Up Coordinator – coordinating volunteers during Saturday evening cleanup
Parade Coordinator – assist with the organization and execution of the parade
If you are interested or have questions about the roles, contact Kevin Kozminske at firstname.lastname@example.org or 626-848-6181. Thank you!
