The 24th annual Spring Gala Dinner and Auction was held March 7 in the St. Mary's gym.

A delicious dinner was served, with creamy parmesan garlic and mushroom chicken, smoked beef brisket with raspberry glaze, roasted new potatoes, orange glazed roasted carrots, salad, assorted breads, chocolate ganache brownie and plenty to drink.

The gala began with hors d' oeuvres and drinks and silent auction bidding. There were many chances to win great prizes before the live auction began: Lucky Pick; Gun Raffle; Gala Raffle Drawing; 50/50 drawing; Guys and Dolls.

The chairperson for the gala was Brandy Maes and the dinner prayer was offered by Brian Niermann, pastoral council president. The live auction was handled by Wayne Voss.

A fun and fulfilling evening was had by all. And mark your calendars: the 2021 Spring Gala is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 6, 2021.
