On Sunday, August 28, Proto Dobrivoje blessed the new picnic pavilion recently completed at St. George Church grounds in Schererville. The parish is extremely grateful to Jovica Tica, Momir Keric, Michael Radjenovich and all the parishioners who came to help under their direction to construct this pavilion. Now the Midwest weather won't be such a factor when planning future picnics and outdoor events.
Once again the combined efforts of 4 KOLO's Humanitarian Fund Mothers Against Hunger Banquet was hugely successful and well attended. Representatives of all four KOLO's (St. Sava - Merrillville, St. George - East Chicago, St. Elijah - Merrillville, and St. George - Schererville) planned and coordinated the annual fundraiser for Serbian orphans in the homeland. This year's host was St. Sava, Merrillville, and the banquet was held at St. Elijah's Hall. Milena Rudman was mistress of ceremonies for the event. Thanks to all the ladies who served, baked, set up, and cleaned up for this worthy cause. If you missed the banquet, donations can be sent to St. Sava Church, 9191 Mississippi St. Merrillville, IN 46410, checks payable to: Humanitarian Fund.
The Northwest Indiana Four Kolos will again sponsor the 18th Annual Humanitarian Relief Fund Banquet.

The banquet will be held on Sunday, October 3, 2010, at 1:00 pm at St. Elijah Serbian Hall at 8700 Taft Street in Merrillville.
