St. Ann’s Family Fair Cancelled

ST. ANN’S FAMILY FAIR CANCELLED                                                            July 8, 2020

 

                St. Ann’s Family Fair, which was to have been held on the last weekend of September 2020, has been cancelled, according to the pastor, Msgr. Larry Droll.  “We are very concerned with the safety of all the guests, volunteers and employees, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.”

                St. Ann’s Family Fair is a Midland tradition; this was to have been the 72nd annual fair.  It usually features carnival rides, booths with games for children, bingo, food booths and so much more.  The parishioners spend weeks constructing the fair and hosting the weekend activities.  “The fair builds up fellowship within the parish and at the same time serves the whole Midland community.”  Income from the fair helps the parish to support St. Ann’s Catholic School.

                “We want to thank all those who were already working on the 2020 fair, and all those generous supporters in the Midland community,” said Msgr. Droll.  “We look forward to next year, with renewed hope!”

  ​In place of the Family Fair, St. Ann’s will have a “Fairless Family Fair.”  All who would have supported the fair or participated in it will be asked to think about how much they would have spent on this event.  They could then donate that amount to the parish by check or on-line giving. This will continue to assist the parish to support St. Ann’s Catholic School.

Help Strengthen a Bio Family
(generic image)
An Infant has been placed with her biological father after coming into care when her mother died giving birth. This infant was born with holes in her brain and her medical providers estimated she would only live days. At this time the infant is now 3 months old and requires extensive medical care. This infant has a feeding tube that she solely relies on for nutrition and Medical professionals have stated that due to her conditions she will not function and meet milestones that an infant normally would.

This father and his family are doing all they can to meet this child’s medical needs. The infant sees specialist’s 5 hours away from the placement frequently, and while there are helpful resources available with Covid-19 and the economy down the family is struggling financially to continue to meet these needs. The family has provided receipts of expenses for their last trip that the child’s medical insurance was unable to assist the family with. Financial assistance would be helpful to this family during this time as they are exhausting their resources trying to give their medically fragile daughter the best medical care possible.
