Thank YouWe just want to say thank you for helping us make a success of the photo shoot for St. Rita’s 90th Anniversary. You were the key in making our job so much easier. How did you do that? By sharing your “hot spot” so others could sign people up before and after all the Masses - by stuffing bulletins with “photo promos” – by moving furniture so the photographers had a "studio" to take beautiful pictures – and by checking people in and reminding them to “say cheese” – also, a special thank you for the many stories you shared of St. Rita’s from its humble beginnings on North Lake Street to its current home on Old Indian Trail, and finally, to MaryEllen Bender and Julieta Jacobo for their non-stop search for locating great volunteers, for translating services and for being the back-bone for a pictorial directory that celebrates St. Rita’s 90th Anniversary.
