The Festival of Two Rivers
Festival of Two Rivers (Parish Fair)
Food booths will include Cajun, Italian, American and Fun Foods. There will also be some Fiesta-themed foods. There will also be ice cold soft drinks, beer, and other adult beverages.
The Chee Weez will be performing on Friday night. We will also have the Horseshoe Tournament again this year!
Festival of Two Rivers - Volunteer Sign-up
We are in the midst of planning for this year’s 11th annual Festival of Two Rivers activities. As you know these events are only possible by the many volunteers that step up to assist with all the activities. We are going to utilize Sign-up Genius again this year for volunteers. It will expedite the volunteer sign-up process by creating an online sign up form which allows the individual to select the date and shift you are available. We have developed a sign-up for the concessions (food & drink booths) another sign-up for manpower and another sign up for the games.
Festival Dates and hours needed: May 3rd (4:45 PM - 11 PM), May 4th (10:45 AM - 10 PM) and May 5th (10:45 AM – 5:00 PM). We are asking you to complete the sign-up ASAP, but no later than Tuesday, April 30, 2019. The directions for Sign-Up Genius are noted below. If you have any questions, please contact the volunteer coordinator, Kyle Cutrer at email@example.com. Volunteer forms are available in the church office, if you prefer to fill out a paper copy instead of using the computer format.
We are asking the parents of our school children and CCD children to please make the game booths your first priority for volunteering. We would ask each child’s family to work at least one 2-hour shift in the game booths. Although, if there are parishioners without children in our school or CCD classes that would like to volunteer for game booths, so please feel free to do so.
Directions for Sign-Up Genius
Please select the link to the sign-up sheet for the area you would like to volunteer. Once you select the link you will be able to view the volunteer schedule. Next to each time slot it will indicate the number of volunteers needed, select the date and time you are able to volunteer. You will be asked to enter your name, email and telephone number. The online schedule will only display your name. The email and telephone number is only available to the volunteer coordinator and chair persons for the events.
Note: there are different links depending on where you would like to volunteer.

We would like to thank those of you who have already returned your tickets or picked up your raffle tickets in lieu of us mailing. The tickets not picked up were mailed on Friday, April 5. If you are in need of additional tickets they can be obtained from the church office or by contacting Lisa Deaton at 225-933-3242.
Many of you have already returned your sold tickets. If you have not returned your tickets, you have three weeks left until our drawing on May 5th at approximately 4:45 PM at the Festival. You may drop them in the collection basket or the church office.
According to the state gaming rules we are required to have all unsold tickets returned, therefore, we are asking you to send any tickets you are not planning to sell or buy ASAP. There is a box in the gathering space of the church labeled cash raffle tickets, that you may drop unsold books of tickets.
Thank you for all of your assistance,
Lisa Deaton, Cash Raffle Chair
