Despite a rainy weekend, the annual St. Mary Magdalen Parish Picnic attracted hundreds of people on Friday and Saturday. Friday night was mostly dry and the carnival rides, live music, games and barbecue were in full swing. On Saturday it sprinkled on and off for much of the day but it didn’t stop people from coming. It helped that there was a covered eating area and games in the school’s gym. The annual event raises money for the parish’s school.
