St Eugene Parish held its annual Wine Tasting Dinner at Chester's Restaurant with the generous support of Kevin Kitson of Christy's Liquor. Each of the five courses of the wonderful meal was paired with a wine that complimented the food. Wines included one from our own local winery, Mulberry Vineyards. The evening ran from 4 pm till well after 6 pm and needless to say, everyone had a wonderful time.
St Eugene Church Parish held its annual 20 Week Club Dinner/Dance on October 17th at the Village Haven Restaurant in Slatersville. After an all-you-can-eat Chicken and Pasta dinner, guests enjoyed dancing to music provided by Back Beat Sounds. Basket raffles, a scratch ticket money tree, and a 50/50 drawing added to the excitement that led up to the Grand Prize drawings that totaled over $2,000.00! A good time was had by all!

All the scout troops and groups will be coming to the 10:15 AM Mass Sunday, February 1st. Part of the scouting program is the dictum “A scout is reverent!” They honor the maker and giver of life. We encourage parents to consider the scouting program for their children. Leadership skills are taught in a fun and creative way. On “Scout Sunday” we welcome the Boy Scouts, Tiger and Cub Scouts, the Brownie Troop, and the various Girl Scout Troops.
