A TRULY WONDERFUL PARISH PICNIC! The line from George Gershwin’s song “I’ve Got Rhythm” sums it all up: “Who could ask for anything more.” We had great weather, great food, great refreshments, great music, great people volunteering, a great crowd attending, great spirits, and great fun which gave us a perfectly great picnic at Slovenska Pristava this past Sunday. We can only be most grateful that Mary, the Mother of God, once again prayed with us and for us to her Son Jesus for a beautiful day. There are so many people who worked together to keep everything running smoothly. We especially thank the Picnic Committee members for organizing the day, including chairman, Deacon David Kushner, David Hocevar for taking care of the bar, Geri Hocevar for the Chinese Auction, Bob Frederico for the burgers and Italian sausage in the Biergarten, Joanna Pope for raffle tickets, Florian Osredkar for the Biergarten, Anci Mihelich for raffle and kitchen help, and Julie Zalar overseeing the kitchen and preparing wonderful chicken/roast beef dinners. Our thanks to the Altar Society for overseeing the Bake Sale and to so many parishioners who provided baked goods for the sale, to Kristjan Sedmak and Jovo Mejak for the always delicious cevapčiči, Toni Kozak for the Ice Cream Stand and Children’s Games, members of Veseli Godci, to everyone who supported the raffle by selling or buying tickets, to so many who donated baskets for the Chinese Auction and to Boris Music from Hansa Brewery for his donation of beer, to Slovenska Pristava, to all who advertised our picnic, both on the radio and in the Slovenian American Times newspaper, and to all of the people who came to support our parish. God bless each and every one of you, especially our volunteers. Without you, we couldn’t have done it.

RES LEP ŽUPNIJSKI PIKNIK. Besede iz George Gershwin pesmi “I’ve Got Rhythm” zbere vse skupaj “Who could ask for anything more.” Imeli smo lepo vreme, dobro hrano, dobro pijačo, veselo muziko, dobre prostovoljce, dobro publiko, veselo vzdušje in zabavo ki nam je dalo perfekten piknik zadnjo nedeljo na Slovenski pristavi. Moramo se zahvaliti Mariji, božji Materi, da je molila z nami in za nas k njenemu Sinu Jezusu za krasen dan. Zahvaljujemo se Pripravljalnemu Odboru za pripravo piknika, posebno voditelju Davidu Kushner, Davidu Hočevar za skrb točilnice, Geri Hočevar za pripravo Kitajske loterije, Bob Fredericu za hamburgerje in Italijanske klobase v Biergartnu, Joanni Pope za raffle tickets, Florijanu Osredkar za postavitev Biergartna, Anči Mihelich za raffle in pomoč v kuhinji in Julki Zalar za vodstvo kuhinje in pripravo okusnega kosila in drugo hrano. Hvala Oltarnemu društvu za vodstvo Prodaje peciva in vsem, ki so prinesli pecivo za prodajo, Kristajnu Sedmak in Jovotu Mejak za vedno dobre čevapčiče, Toni Kozak za dobavo sladoleda in pripravo otroških iger,Veselim Godcem za muziko, vsem ki ste darovali košarice za Kitajsko loterijo, Borisu Mušič od Hansa Brewery za darovano pivo.
