Kiddie Karnival Rescheduled

St. Charles Borromeo Carnival is delighted to announce that we are rescheduling our Kiddie Karnival.

Kiddie Karnival is our special, kid focused and kid friendly Carnival event traditionally held on Friday afternoon of Carnival week from 12:00 noon to 4:00pm.

This year, we've noted the impact of the winter weather on the school calendar and we know that our young carnival guests who normally enjoy the Kiddie Karnival will still be in school on Friday, June 13.

In order for all youngsters to have the most fun with us this year, we've rescheduled Kiddie Karnival to Saturday, June 14, 2014 from Noon - 4:00pm.

The price is the same $15 for unlimited rides from noon to 4:00pm. And all the traditional Kiddie Karnival rides and games will be open.  Also, we'll have our special kid's lunches and parent's lunches available, too!

So, come and join in the fun this Saturday from Noon to 4:00pm for Kiddie Karnival in Final Frontier!

Wrist Band Night

We were very fortunate to have a break in the early rain last night on Tuesday. As a result, we were able to have a very safe and fun wristband night, so there is no need to reschedule it.

Thanks to everyone that came out and we hope to see you back this week!

Important Updates For Next Week

Carnival is next week! Be sure to check out the updates we made to the site with new details including our food and entertainment schedule and our rides and raffles info.

Also it is not too late to volunteer. Click here to sign up.

Lastly, please be advised, due to a change in delivery schedule we are moving up the BOOTH SETUP!

Please be on-site  Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 1:00pm to review the booth setup.  It is EXTREMELY important that you physically review your booth on Saturday, June 7, 2014 for anything you need that is not already in your booth.  Sunday our construction crew will be otherwise occupied and opening night is too late. 

You can check out your booths and pick up your Carnival T shirts all at the same time! 

Live Long and Prosper and see you next week!

T-Shirt Pickup

ATTENTION ALL HANDS!

SCB Carnival is rapidly approaching!!  Now, we're planning the distribution of Carnival volunteer T-shirts.

Carnival T-Shirt pickup will be Saturday, June 7 and Sunday June 8 under the food tent on the Carnival grounds. Please stop by between 1pm and 3pm to pickup the Carnival shirts for your booth.

If you haven't submitted a T-shirt form yet, please contact captain@scbcarnival.com ASAP!  We really need the forms to ensure that each booth receives all the shirts requested.

Live Long and Prosper!

 

Construction Under Way

The trailers are here and we are in desperate need of volunteers to assist in carnival construction.

Please stop by on evenings after 6pm or on weekends starting in the morning. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, and we can't wait to see you.

Volunteer Drive

Just a quick reminder...

The parish is light refreshments after all Masses and this event will give all of us a chance to fill out the volunteer schedules by inviting to new folks to our team.

I'm very excited to interact with all the parishioners.  We'll have plenty of volunteer forms to help you with sign-ups and I'll be there to answer questions and support the volunteer effort.

Please pass this email along to anyone who is looking for volunteers and anyone who is looking to volunteer.  All are welcome to join us!

Thank You From The 2013 Chairs

We would like to thank all the new and returning volunteers of this year’s carnival who dedicated their time and talent to make St. Charles Borromeo’s 2013 “There’s no place like Carnival” a success. All the time and effort that was donated by all the volunteers to bring forth our theme and to make it an exciting addition to the annual carnival, is truly appreciated and could not be accomplished without you. As the Chair family we had a great time sharing our week with you and we hope that you enjoyed each and every minute as much as we did.

Thank you,

2012 Carnival

Greetings to One and All!

Planning for the 2012 Carnival is ongoing. The theme this year is "In the Jungle" and marks St. Charles Borromeo's year after the Golden Jubilee. Our goal this year is for everyone to have more fun then ever before.

As always, the carnival only works with the volunteers that make it all happen. Two specific calls we issue this year are for chair people for ride tickets during the week of Carnival (this job requires someone to handle tickets and money all during the open hours of Carnival) and for Chair people for the funnel cake (this job requires someone to handle the operation of the funnel cake stand). We hope to find 2 Co-Chair Couples to split the work load of each position. Please let us know if you can handle it.

Another area that we could really use help is during Construction and De-Constriction.  We start to build the Carnival in Mid-May and it usually takes us till the first week in July for De-Construction. 

We can be contacted via e-mail: renee@independentimaging.org. Volunteer forms can be filled out and sent to us, please just look under the heading Volunteers at the top of the site, or click here.

Have a wonderful year and hope to see you at the Carnival.
