“It takes a Village…”
In reflecting on the past few months and the preparations for our 9th Annual GlobalFest celebration, this phrase couldn’t be more accurate. It takes a village—school and church community— to put together and host such a fun and successful fundraiser. From the Sponsors that make it all possible to the food donations, to the children, teachers and parent volunteers that have spent countless hours creating art, practicing songs and choreography, providing logistics and decorations, we thank you for putting your all in to helping St. Matthias have such a wonderful community event. We should all be proud of all of our efforts and talents that are being showcased during this week of arts and culture.
Lincoln and Leland May 30-June 2
One of Lincoln Square’s most infamous celebrations is just around the corner! Maifest is the traditional German celebration of the arrival of spring. Maifest is still celebrated throughout Germany with the maypole (maibaum) decorated to show off the history and crafts of the local village or town.
