9/20/2013 11:06:00 AM Hog roast at St. Pius V eaten up
by Sue Sullivan
St. Pius V Catholic Church put a new spin on their Fall Festival last Sunday. They had a hog roast that served more than 200 people before it ran out. Pork sandwiches, hot dogs and nachos with cheese filled the gap.
Winner of the $600 raffle drawing was Caroline Priore.
Both destination timeshares were auctioned off giving each successful bidder a week-long stay for up to eight people - one is going to Texas and one to Hawaii.
Father Siebenauler's bicycle, an ongoing auction item that returns to the block annually, was again successfully bid upon.
Along with the fine items in the silent auction, a country store sold hand-crafted items garden produce and pies.
Balloon artist David Olson created rubbery creatures for children while the Jim Busta Band played behind them.
There were games galore including golf putt, hula-hoops and dart toss games, Wheel-of-Fortune and Free Throw, Plinko, fish pond, bean bag toss, splash ball and more.
Coral, lavender, pink and green hair spray colored the coiffures of many, especially but not limited to youth, giving them that ethereal look.
Money raised by the event does directly to the church to be used as needed.
