St. Jerome’s Fall Supper: A Night Of Community, Good Food, And Success


St. Jerome’s school hit a high note in community engagement as it hosted its annual fall supper on September 21 at the Vermilion Regional Center. The event, which saw both the 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. sittings sold out, can be aptly described as a resounding success for the school.

Principal Allan Chase remarked, “We sold all of our 750 tickets, with 350 diners at the 5 p.m. sitting and an additional 400 at the 6:30 p.m. sitting.” The turnout showed the school’s strong ties to the community and its ability to bring people together for a wonderful evening.

What truly made this fall supper a standout event was not just the numbers but the quality of the experience. Members of the public couldn’t help but praise the delectable supper items and mouthwatering desserts that graced their plates. The evening’s centerpiece, the roast, was sourced from the Vermilion Packers, ensuring top-notch quality. Principal Chase explained, “The meat was cooked and cut there, but the rest of the groceries were generously donated by families and staff.”

Chase was quick to emphasize the collaborative effort that made this feast possible. “I want to say a big thank you to all the families for their contributions of food and the community members for volunteering their time in the kitchen on Wednesday and Thursday,” he said. “A special thank you goes out to Mrs. Protsch, Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Moir, Sara Dewwing, and Charlene Young for their leadership in organizing this event.”

Chase couldn’t hide his admiration for the students, staff, and the broader St. Jerome’s school community. “I continue to be amazed by the unwavering commitment and dedication of our students, staff, and school community at St. Jerome’s. They consistently come together to create memorable events like this supper.”

The success of this fall supper not only fostered a sense of unity but also served a meaningful purpose. All proceeds from the evening will be channeled towards supporting extra-curricular activities and the student union at St. Jerome’s.
