Floral Affair – October 2017

The Annual Floral Affair on Saturday, 23
September went off with a hiss and a roar or should
I say a sound of trumpets! A most successful event
saw the church full of flowers,music, tables full of
delicious food and happy people enjoying it all.
The theme of “Beside the Seaside” was highlighted
with a large octopus at the door and the yacht sail
slung over the church rafters!
What a great job! hearty thanks to all the helpers
Do Las Vegas Churches accept gambling chips?
This may come as a surprise to those of you not
living in Las Vegas, but there are more Catholic
churches than casinos.
Not surprisingly some worshippers at Sunday
services will give casino chips rather than cash
when the basket is passed.
Since they get chips from many different casinos,
the churches have devised a method to collect
the offerings.
The churches send all their collected chips to a
nearby Franciscan monastery for sorting and then
the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and
cashed in.
This is done by the
Chip Monks.
It’s so easy to fool ole folks………
