Thanks to the help of everyone involved, last Sunday’s “Taste of St. Bridget” was very successful. CCALA sincerely thanks all of you, those who bought tickets, those amateur chefs who donated their labor and material, and those who donated their labor for setup and clean up. The total income is $1098.50. Minus the $171.74 for expenses, the net income is $926.76. That amount has been included in this year’s fund raising income.
St Bridget Chinese Catholic Church is celebrating its diamond jubilee this year. The Association is organizing a great fundraising banquet to celebrate this exceptional milestone. Fr.

The date is Saturday, October 18, the place is the newly refurbished Empress Pavilion, and dinner tickets can be purchased at Church on Sunday or contact Maggie Tsui at (805) -241-5905.
