St. Eugene's Parish Car Show and Craft Fair October 12, 2014. This is a family day for our parish. There is no cost to view the wonderful cars of past generations, enjoy great food and browse our
craft fair. You can help, we are asking everyone who attends to bring a can good for our food pantry. If you are a business person please ask how a small donation from you can go a long way to stock our pantry and enhance your standing in our community. As a parishioner who would like to memorialize someone who took you for long Sunday rides, to the Drive-In, or just loved old cars you can purchase a set of trophies engraved with your loved ones name and then you can select and present the trophies to the winners. This would also make a great gift for your children or grandchildren. Watch their faces light up when they are presented their own personalized trophy.
