Crab Feast

Hello everyone! Peace be with you! So below and above this message are pictures from the Crab Feast. It is essentially the same picture, but one has Friar Santo in it and the other does not. Also one has Michael's eyes closed and the other does not and one has Rick's full head and the other not.

Anyway, the crab feast is the friars of the St. Anthony of Padua Province's Annual Fundraiser for the Education Fund. Friars, benefactors, family, and friends come from all over the east coast to support this effort. Essentially you pay $5o and get all you can eat crab with the fixins' and spend your money on various games, booths, and tables. I am in charge of the instant win lottery. This year I sold 2 and 3/4 boxes worth. It was a lot of fun, but busy.

A More Realistic Commitment...

Over the summer I made a wonderful commitment of offering to write a new post once a day for an entire year. Well that was great idea during the summer and with no summer classes. Here is a more Realistic Commitment = 1 Year - 365 Days - 52 Weeks - At least 1 Post a Week! I think I will be more faithful to this commitment then my previous one.
