The school board has been very generous to help with the cost, and we are getting closer to helping these children to have this amazing opportunity. The community support has been amazing so far and we truly appreciate all that is being done. If anyone wants to make a donation, please contact Kerry Tallon, Klinda Brennan, Lee Ann Gagnon, or DWKS school. Our small school with a big heart will be shining in Tennessee with your support. These children have worked hard to get this far, let’s help them make it all the way!

Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) Congratulations to Eli William Albert Raymond, infant son of Dustin Raymond and Laura Pecoskie who was baptized in Chapeau last weekend.

2) The dates have been set for those children preparing for sacraments this year. First Confession and First Communion will take place on the weekend of May 19-20th and Confirmation will be celebrated on Sunday, June 10th. All three sacraments will be celebrated in the Chapeau Church. Watch future bulletins for more details.

3) Attention all couples who are planning to be married in 2018: Most of you have yet to contact me to complete the required paperwork for your weddings. This must be done ASAP!!! If there are any issues or problems and you wait too long, I will not be able to celebrate the wedding. PLEASE contact me without delay to avoid this fate.

4) Bible Study continues on Thursday evenings at 7 pm in St. Joseph’s rectory.

5) When was the last time you checked out the parish website? ( Not only do we post the bulletin there every week but we often post articles that might be of benefit, interest, or help to you. For example, this week I posted the story about Chris Hayes of Chapeau receiving his Stanley Cup Championship ring after waiting for 46 years for it to come! Check it out the next time you’re online.

6) Here’s a “canine humour” that might bring a smile to your face:

a) Why don’t blind people skydive? Because it scares the daylight out of their seeing-eye dogs!

b) What do you get when you cross a dyslexic, an insomniac, and an agnostic?

Someone who lays awake at night wondering if there is a dog.

c) Why did the cowboy get a wiener dog? He wanted to get a long little doggie.

d) If you want to find out who loves you more, stick your wife and dog in the trunk of your car for an hour. When you open the trunk, who is happy to see you?
