St. Andrew the Apostle Parish in Calumet City will be holding their 39th annual SummerFest during the weekend of June 23rd and 24th on the church grounds. Although the fest is open to the public, Saturday evening has been designated as St. Andrew the Apostle School Alumni Night. Former teachers have been invited, and all previous students are encouraged to attend to renew old friendships. Saturday's event runs from 6 until 10pm. A wide variety of food and drink will be available for purchase throughout the evening with music by Rick-Sun Audio DJ. Festivities include a Bean Bag tournament and, new this year, GIANT JENGA. There is a $20 per team fee for the Bean Bag tournament. Prizes include 4 Chicago White Sox tickets, 2 Blackhawk official home jerseys, and two 4-pack VIP passes to the Shedd Aquarium. Signups have already begun. Anyone interested may call the church rectory, or send their information to standrew@saintandrewparish.com.

Festivities resume on Sunday at 3 pm and continue until 9 pm. Be sure to bring a lawn chair so you can sit back, relax and enjoy St. Andrew's traditional live Polka entertainment featuring Tony Blazonczyk's New Phaze from 4 till 9 pm. An inflatable jumper and games of chance and skill for kids, plus Bingo for adults will run from 3 till 6 pm. A newly added attraction this year will be Slot Car Races, a popular hobby from the 1960's. Food and drink will again be available throughout the day.

A special raffle will be held this year for three pairs of CHICAGO BEARS Club Seat tickets valued at $335 each. Three prizes will be awarded, including parking for the 1st and 2nd prize winners. Raffle tickets are on sale now for $20 each or 3/$50 with only 500 tickets being sold.
