Hi Music Lovers!
Just five weeks until the FEST!  Here is some current info along with some contests and volunteer opportunities you may want to consider.
I'll be singing in the Choir so we'll need some Event Hosts to help organize the group and stake out some good spots on the lawn for the concert.  Remember to bring blankets and chairs.  Food will be available or bring your own.  Of course, alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
Hope to see you there,
RSVP NOW! (click here)

FEST Team Member of the Week:Louise Formica
Louis serves as an Activity Coordinator and a vital member of the FEST Core Team. Her interests include photography, anything outdoors/organizing and helping with different events for others.

Louise’s favorite thing about the FEST is helping new teens, families and groups get involved with the FEST to be able to share their gifts and talents for the love of God!
