St. John’s Lutheran holds summer picnic
An early overcast day that broke into sunshine later in the afternoon was the backdrop for St. John’s Lutheran Church’s summer picnic, held July 25. The merriment was held at the pavilion at Coplay Parkway.
Following the picnic registration, Timothy Boyer, pastor of the 18 S. Third St., Coplay, church, held worship service at the pavilion. Afterward, the picnic luncheon began.
Great food, fun and fellowship were the hallmarks of the day. It was a day of reconnecting and bonding in a wholesome environment.
Helmut Fried, a deejay of note, played 1950s to ’70s-style music to everyone’s delight. There were games, such as Let’s Make a Deal and bingo, dancing, a cake walk and more.
Nadine Shull, gift basket prizes coordinator and games emcee, did a great job running the games and garnering full basket prizes for bingo and other game winners.
Jeff Reinhard, church picnic committee chairman, was delighted with the fun gathering his committee and numerous church volunteers helped assemble. The planning phase was months of preparation to provide parishioners with a quality event.
Boyer said he was delighted at the fellowship evident with his parishioners.
