Parish Winter Social

Annual IHM Parish Winter Social

The Parish Winter Social, sponsored by the Killgoar Foundation, is an annual event held (usually) on the Saturday preceding the beginning of Lent.  Members and friends come together in the Parish Center for an evening of dinner, dancing and camaraderie.  It is an informal occasion where newer parishioners have an opportunity to get better acquainted and longer-time parishioners can catch up with each other.  The evening comprises a social hour, dinner, a short program, including the annual presentation of the Killgoar Foundation’s Dutch VanderVeen Service Award, music and dancing.
