Parishioners at St. George Catholic Church plan to cook up a day of food, fun and festivities for the entire community in a newly renovated church hall Sunday, August 2, at the annual church picnic and barbecue in George West. From good old fashioned barbecue and a live auction, to artist booths, children’s games, bird house competition and the ever popular paper bingo, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

The event kicks off at 11 a.m., barbecue sirloin plates complete with all the trimmings and homemade desserts. The $6 plates will be served inside the parish hall until 2 p.m. or they can be picked up in the drive-through lane located on Travis street.

For those interested in finding unique, one of-a-kind items, the live auction begins at 1 p.m. and the country store and area artist booths will be open throughout the day.

The ever popular paper bingo will run from 2:30 - 6:30 p.m. Players can either bring their own dauber or purchase them at the hall.

Other events slated throughout the day include children’s games a birdhouse building/decorating contest and silent auction, and a parish raffle. Raffle tickets are $1 a piece and are available at the rectory or may be purchased from parishioners. Winners of the raffle will be announced at approximately 6:30 p.m.

For additional information or to purchase raffle tickets contact the St. George rectory, (361) 449-1893.
