Spring clean-up at St. Archangel Gabriel’s on Saturday 5/14/16

With the arrival of spring, as well as being prompted by the fundraising-dinner planned for Sunday, May 15, 2016, some of our parishioner’s volunteered to help clean-up the grounds of our parish on Saturday 5/14/16. Though the day started off cold with rain, the gentlemen of our parish came forth to mow the lawn, clean-up the parking lot, collect the litter, remove any unnecessary items from sight, as well as to clean up the children’s playground and the bocce lane. The leader of the effort was Drgan Curcic who lended a full day off work and his landscaping gear so that we would be equipped for the effort properly. The busy hands helping were our Father Vasilije Tomic, Dragan Curcic, Srdjo Stojsic, Mile Kotarac, Aleksandar Cvijetinovic, Sinisa Cvetkovic, Dejan Pavlovic, Ziko Bozic and Zoran Radisic. We’ve also had junior assistants: Jovana Cvijetinovic, Jana Stojsic, Marko Curcic and Jakov and Kalina Pavlovic.

Sinisa Cvetkovic donated meat and prepared it on the kitchen grill. It was a joyous atmosphere at the table with the delicious BBQ, music and our merry company of not only the outdoors clean-up crew, but also the Kolo sisters who were preparing the hall for the fundraiser dinner on Sunday. The day was finished with a game of bocce where both the grown-ups and children played, while indoors Sinisa and Zoran pealed the roasted peppers!

We thank all of those who were able to come by and help out and appreciate everyone’s help in any way and ask that anyone who was not mentioned please forgive the writer of these lines.
