Looking for Festival CORE TEAM and EVENT leads!

The Fall Festival is September 17-19, 2021!

The Fall Festival Committee is looking for some energetic volunteers to share ideas from Big Ticket Items to weekend activities and everything in between! Each Festival CORE TEAM member communicates between other CORE TEAM members and with the staff team and with your Event Leads. With our new normal changing daily due to the novel COVID-19 virus, the 2021 Festival will be fluid, plan for multiple contingencies, adhere to local and state requirements and restrictions and use the MN State Fair and Woodbury Days as our barometer with safety always in mind.

As a core team, we’ll get together and liaison for the community members to host this annual event. Advisory, visionary people are wanted to meet via Zoom about 4-5 times (before the festival in September) and touch base with all activities, such as Volunteers Signup slots & shifts, Big Ticket, Food and Concessions, Silent Auction, Woodbury Days and Festival Weekend.

Needed Fall Festival CORE team leads brief descriptions:

  • Volunteers & Weekend Sign-Ups: Assist with volunteers to communicate event leader needs, recruit high school service hour volunteers, event sign-ups and manage info counter volunteers (maps/info). Sign-up tables set up for before and after weekend masses if in-person.  95% of the tasks could be done at home.
  • Woodbury Days: If not cancelled, we will be participating in the Grande Parade and in need of a leader, or co-leaders, for this event.  Leader(s) will work with parish office to promote Guardian Angels during the Grande Parade. Organize display, supplies, giveaways, and volunteers. 2021 parade is scheduled for 11:00 am Sunday 8/22/2021 and is 1.5 miles long.

Needed Fall Festival EVENT leads (brief descriptions): 

  • Silent Auction: Work with fellow volunteers sorting, data entry and business follow-up calls & visits, packaging and itemizing silent auction items. Many computer tasks and follow up calls could be done at home.
  • Saturday & Sunday Dish/Tray Cleanup Coordinators (Food Tent): This position is perfect for Co- Leaders who like to volunteer behind the scenes. Co-Leaders will work with and assist fellow Food Event Leads to keep up our fabulous dinner’s effortless appearance up.

 Next Fall Festival Core and Event Lead meeting is Monday, August 16, 2021

Logistics: Zoom meeting by invite. Questions or to RSVP reach out to Sharon in the Parish Office, call 651-789-3182 or email at .

Fall Festival News/Updates:
  • The Women's Club will host our crowd-pleasing Bottle Lotto!  It is especially popular with the younger crowd ages 5 to 15. The younger kids love to get wrapped candy, coins or other treats, small stuffed animals (think beany babies).  Teenagers like shampoo, nail polish, silly socks, any beauty and hair accessories. Use your "bottled up" creativity to come up with your own mix of fun things! You can also drop off a bag of wrapped candy (no loose M&M's please) and let the Women's Club members put together bottles for you. Donations accepted August 1 - September 10 at the Bottle Lotto drop off location outside the Parish Office.
