Fellowship Annual Report January 2006
Special Events: Nadia Doss/Susanne Lisowski
We provided refreshments for many events throughout the year, including a New Members Brunch, a Mission Vespers dinner, a Presanctified Liturgy dinner hosting Sts. Constantine and Helen, a Pascha feast following the Resurrection service, a lunch honoring the church's feastday, New Year's Eve party, as well as various meetings. We also provided support for the picnic and the Patriot's Day (9/11) events.
We gave out carnations to Moms on Mother's Day, and Dad's root beer on Father's Day.
We also organized the potluck dinners following Presanctified Liturgies during Great Lent.
We appreciate all the people who jumped in to help with cleaning up following events this year. It can be a lot of work and take a lot of time, so were are very grateful to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and washed dishes, cleared tables and took out garbage.
On June 12, 2005 the Quad-Parish Picnic was held at Buffalo Grove #3 in Hickory Hills, Illinois. Approximately 180 participants from Archangel Michael Church, St. Luke Church, Sts. Peter and Paul Church and St. Panteleimon Church attended the picnic.
Liturgy was held at the picnic grounds and began around 9:45 a.m. Liturgy was officiated by clergy from all parishes and by Archbishop Job.
Picnic lunch was catered from Valley Inn Caterers. Lunch consisted of hot dogs, brats with grilled onions, Italian sausage with peppers and onions in red sauce, fried chicken, corn on the cob, baked beans, pasta salad and all condiments. The Picnic Committee provided potato salad. Picnic participants took the extra food and a free will donation basket was placed on the table. Extra water and soda was sold at $3 a case.
The Chili Cook-Off had another good year. Three entries for the Traditional Chili with no beans and six entries for the People's Choice Chili with beans. Prizes were given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizewinners.
Raffles were donated by the four parishes and were raffled off during the picnic. Extra raffles were sold during the picnic, but not too many were bought. Eleven adult raffle prizes were given and 15 children prizes were given out.
Clean up was taken care of by volunteers from the four parishes.

Total Income from 2005 Quad-Parish Picnic
A 20 ft. x 20 ft. tent was purchased for use by all four parishes (St. Luke, Archangel Michael, Sts. Peter and Paul and St. Panteleimon). The cost of the tent was $730.00, which is to be shared equally by all four parishes. The $730.00 will be subtracted from the income of $871.31, leaving a total of $141.31. Each parish will receive $35.33 cash from the income, leaving a zero balance to be carried over to next year.
The date of the 2006 picnic has been set for Sunday, June 4.
