At the Our Lady of Grace Church’s annual roast beef supper hosted at the Castor Community Hall on Sunday

Community comes out to support Our Lady of Grace Church’s Fourth Annual Spring Supper

The evening was well attended and the funds raised will be used to maintain the church.

The Castor Community Hall parking ground was crowded with vehicles from near and far as Castor residents and community members from as far as Byemoor came to enjoy and support the annual roast beef supper on Sunday evening, April 2, hosted by Our Lady of Grace Church in Castor.

“The evening was very well-attended,” said Elanor Mah, member of Parish Pastoral Council as Parish Life Coordinator and Coordinator of the Spring supper. “The funds raised from the event will be used to maintain our church.”

According to Mah, the event was not just a fundraiser, but a chance for the parish and community members to get together with friends and family, celebrating spring in Castor’s small community.

“We had a menu of roast beef, mashed potatoes, corn, carrots, gravy, salad and three kinds of pickles along with homemade buns and a variety of dessert to choose from,” Mah added. “We also had beverages coffee, tea or juice, there was plenty.”

Mah also said that events like these are well received and supported by the community as they serve as a platform for people to mingle and know one another.

There was an Elmo doll, a free door prize raffle for the children, donated by Mike and Wendy Bain, which was won by Kennedy Hronek.

“We also had a decorated cake raffle for children’s liturgy,” Mah noted, which had been donated by her.

The cake was won by Sheila Gorcak, and all money from the purchase of the raffle tickets would go back into buying stationery and other supplies for the kids.

“We would like to thank the whole community who supported us, all the guests and visitors who came from Castor and area,” Mah said. “A big thank you to the volunteers who worked so hard to make our supper a success, and to Father Don, our priest who supported and encouraged us. Our heartiest gratitude also for the children who shared their musical talents in the background.”
