It’s picnic time at St. Andrew’s

One of the biggest events in Atascosa County during the spring is the annual St. Andrew Catholic Church Picnic. It just keeps growing and growing. The picnic is planned for Sunday, May 7 at the parish hall located at 626 Market Street, and as always, will be filled with food, fun and festivities. When talking about a picnic, the most important event is food – and lots of it.

The meal, consisting of brisket, sausage, beans, potato salad and coleslaw also comes with dessert and tea - all for $9 per plate.

Serving begins at 11 a.m. and there’s lots more to do before or after the meal.

The Country Store and Plant Sale will be going on next door to the parish hall. Bingo and children’s games plus a raffle and the big auction - which begins at 1 p.m.
