Plan to join us next year!
Everyone had a great time at Oktoberfest, on October 9, 2022. We had 118 people in attendance, enjoying such great foods as bratwurst, sauerbraten, Spaetzel, Black Forest Cake, Apple Strudel and lots of German side dishes. Many thanks to all who helped. We also thank the "Rusty Pipes" from Croasdaile for beginning our celebration with rousing music. A wonderful yearly tradition at St. Paul's.
