COME ONE, COME ALL TO THE ST. JAMES ANNUAL SUMMER PICNIC

Summer 2001

In This Issue:
It feels like summer outside, and that means it must be time for the annual St. James Parish Picnic. The Parish Picnic, which will be held on July 22nd this year, the day we celebrate the Feast of St. James.

For newcomers and regulars alike, the Parish Picnic is a great way to spend a sunny Seattle afternoon. Volunteers take over Terry Avenue, turning it into an arcade under the trees. The street is filled with tables and chairs, and the sidewalks lined with stands where volunteers serve hot dogs and hamburgers, cold lemonade, popcorn, and ice cream treats. There is always a clown, of course, and balloons and games to keep the younger parishioners hopping and happy.

The St. James Brass Ensemble turns from baroque classics to Sousa, and jazz for the afternoon, performing a band concert in the park. It’s a great opportunity to listen, dance, or simply spend time getting to know the people you see each week at Mass.
