St. Stanislaus Bazaar and Dedication Coming Soon
By Gail Sowell
St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Anderson has hosted many annual homecomings and bazaars in the past, but this one will be special for all the long-time parishioners, as well as the more recent parishioners.
This year’s event, set for Sunday, Oct. 12, is dedicated in honor of retired pastor the Rev. Louis Sikorski, who served more than 28 years, and to the loving memory of Maxine Lee, parish secretary, who served for more than 30 years.
The present pastor, the Rev. Raul Marterior, and the parishioners of St. Stanislaus are inviting the community to help celebrate this special occasion with them for the 53rd time.
A barbecue and sausage dinner, costing $7 per plate for adults and $5 for children, will be served at 11 a.m. There will be booths and games for all ages. Tommy Szymczak will once again head up the live auction beginning at 1 p.m. with lots of nice items, antiques and quilts as well as some very special historic pieces.
Live Polish music will be provided for entertainment and dancing throughout the day by Brian Marshall and the Texas Paradise Band. This year marks the twentieth consecutive year this band has
entertained at the annual bazaar.
A raffle of 11 nice prizes will be drawn at the end of the auction. Participants will also be able to purchase lots of handmade and homemade items at Babusha’s Porch.
The beautiful, historic church, which was completed in 1917, will also be open for visitors to view.
Proceeds will benefit the beautification and maintenance of the church as well as the building of a new parish hall.
