Another successful Oktoberfest celebration has come to a close and a great time was had by all. The school is grateful to all who stopped by to enjoy the wonderful Antiques Market, fabulous Family Festival and Biergarten and Oktoberfest’s delicious German dinner and outdoor dance party. This annual community wide event brings many school parents, parishioners, friends and neighbors together. The co-chairs were Anne McKiernan (outgoing) and Rachelle Leech (incoming), who led a dedicated and hardworking Oktoberfest Committee and many volunteers.
