Frantoberfest is back!

September 17-18, 2022

What we know so far . . . The Silent Auction is in good hands with
returning chair people – Pam & Boris Banjac and Candice
Koopmeiners. Same thing with the Franny Flyer 5k/10k/1 mile
walk and Children’s Run which starts off the weekend with the
race taking place Saturday morning. Thank you Nick Novak. Saturday afternoon we will have Mass at
4:00pm with music, food and fun to follow . . . . OUTSIDE! The hamburger stand is back, beer will be
poured, music will be playing and there will be activities for children and youth. Thank you to Margaret
Stang (children’s games), Rick Fleege (youth), Jeff Eikmeier (beer), KC’s (food stand), and Mary Fasen
(finance). Lily’s Wings (Steve & Kelli Ehlen) and Fun Time Ice Cream (Francis & Shikha Gomes) will be on
site and selling food.
On Sunday morning, a Dad’s Belgian Waffle Breakfast is getting lined up and we will end the event with
the closing of the Silent Auction at Noon and the raffle drawing. Are there opportunities for more?
Probably. What do we need? More good people to step forward to help. We need prayers for good
planning and the safety of all involved. We need donations for many things – silent auction, parish raffle,
and more. Details will come out as the planning continues. Thank you to those who have said yes to helping
make this happen. Many great things have been started. Please call Tom in the parish office (320-252-
1363, ext. 1105) or send him an email (tofferdahl@stfrancissartell.org) if you have ideas and/or want to
help.
