Big things are ahead for St. Martin in the Fields this fall. It starts on August 2nd at 9 a. m. when there will have a special clean out of the basement. Willing hands are needed to help. Bring your gloves, boxes for packing, your helpful spirit and a strong back. There will be a “dumpster” for the waste. If you have a dolly for loading boxes, that would be a big help. Hope to see you there.
August 30 is the tentative date for Third Annual Picnic for St. Martin in the Fields at St. Matthews Grove on Nuangola Rd. It is just down from the corner by the Church. Bring a covered dish or dessert to share and your own soft drinks. The Church will provide the hot dogs and hamburgers. There will be games for old and young, lots of good food, and fun for all!
Have you flown a kite recently? To fly a kite in the wind is a great and simple pleasure that you should share with your children. Well, St. Martin in the Fields is going to give you an opportunity to fly with the experts from the Pocono Kite Symphony. Here is you chance to not only enjoy the outdoors but to participate in an activity that you and your children will enjoy. Watching a kite ride the wind will amaze and touch you with wonder as it dances randomly in its own unpredictable path.
St. Martin in the Fields is sponsoring the Second Mountain Top Kite Festival on September 27th. This will be a fantastic event for “children” of all ages and the second one to be held in our area. Each child can sign up to build a kite and then be helped to learn how to fly it. There will be a kite flying exhibition by the Pocono Kite Symphony and a DJ will keep you entertained. Mark you calendar now so as not to miss out on this experience.
October 18th is St. Martin’s annual bazaar featuring fabulous gift baskets, a bake sale featuring our Welsh cookies, craft and rummage sale, and plenty of great food.
