Special Events Coordinator Report Annual Meeting January 2004

Prepared by Nadia Doss

The Fellowship Ministry tried very hard again this year to provide special events at the lowest possible cost. I believe that we have succeeded in doing this.

The church picnic was a great success this year. Four parishes came together for fellowship and fun. The Chili Cook-off had more entries this year and the first place winner was from St. Panteleimon. Next year I am sure St. Luke will regain the title.

Valley Inn Caterers catered St. Luke's Feast Day. Approximately 100 people attended the event.

The Christmas Eve Holy Supper was attended well. Thanks to all those that helped in the setup and clean up.

The New Year's Eve Party took place after the Vesperal Liturgy on Jan. 31, 2003. 51 people attended. The cost was $30 per adult and $15 for children 6-15 years old. This year the menu consisted of appetizers, prime rib, double baked potato, green beans almondine, tossed salad, rolls and desert. Karaoke added to the entertainment of the evening as well as dancing and bringing in of the New Year. Thank you to the Lisowski Family and to my husband Robert for all their help in getting the church hall ready for this event. A special thank you to our chef Peter Zekios. You carved that prime rib so well!!!!!!

The end of year expenses for the Community Team total came to $6,270.92.

Total amount of monies collected from participants came to $5,992.00.

For 2004 the picnic has been tentatively planned for June 6, 2004. Bishop Job and all four parishes in our area will celebrate Liturgy together at the Forest Preserves.

St. Luke's 20th Anniversary Celebration will be held on October 24, 2004. Planning for this event is now in process.
