Fifth Grade Vocation Day 2018

John Muelhberger again did a great job of organizing the Serran volunteers to prepare, serve and clean up after 950 students had eaten. John was also instrumental in having this meal named for the Zarda family. Here is his report.

There were 20 Serran’s volunteers helping to feed 950 students, teachers, and
volunteers. The day went smoothly considering feeding and cleaning up for over
three hundred individuals in three thirty minute intervals

The day was also highlighted by the presence of Betty and Ben Zarda. Our President, Gary McCoy and the Serran volunteers presented Betty and Ben with the proclamation plaque naming the 5th grade vocation day ‘The Betty and Ben Zarda family 5th grade vocation day luncheon”. Betty and Ben were very appreciative of the recognition.

Thank the Serran volunteers for their efforts during this special day. Prayerfully, our efforts and the teachers efforts that day will result in future priests, Sisters, and holy men and woman for our Catholic Church.

Others had a great time by themselves
A great opportunity to learn about religious vocations
Serrans kept a semblance of order
And some ate more or less quietly
