St. Jerome’s Fall Supper
St. Jerome’s Catholic School was thrilled to host its Fall Supper at the Vermilion Regional Centre on September 22. Not having had one for two years, students said they enjoyed the preparation and everyone getting together to have a good time.
Between two sittings approximately 800 people attended the event, many of whom were thrilled to take part in the longstanding tradition. All of the funding from the fall supper goes to support programming in the school.
“A huge thank you to the people in the room. The meal was donated and prepared by school families and community members; it really is a community supper,” said Principal Allan Chase. “A big thank you to Charlene Young for spearheading the cooks and to the several organizers.
The high school students set up and prepared he said, while the elementary students handmade the decorations and others served juice and coffee.
“It’s about community; eating in communion is part of our celebration of who we are. What I love about it is the visiting, the comradery, the alumni that come out; everyone’s support makes for a fun night,” said Chase.
