Good Morning Everyone!

We hope you had a good nights rest, especially if you attended last nights festivities at the SFYA Casino Night! 🙂 We hope that we have contributed in ending your week with a bang and starting another week in high spirits!

For those who weren’t able to attend, no worries, there are still more events to come 😉 with more opportunities to meet others. But just in case you’re curious or wanting to recap the night, here is what the evening entailed…

We wanted to be able to provide you with an atmosphere that corresponded with the nights theme: FUN! YOUNG ADULTS! DANCING! GAMES! and FUN!  That’s right…FUN was mentioned twice and that was our goal…double the fun!

The delicious food was provided by The Empty Nesters:  lasagna, Italian salad, bread assortments, condiments.   To compliment the main course, various desserts were provided by the Empty Nesters and the Hispanic Ministry.  There were poker tables, blackjack table, and roulette table for all to play. So if you wanted a “warm-up” for that Shreveport vacation, then our Casino Night was the place to be :p .Now what dance floor is a success unless there is some grooves and moves? 😀 That’s right!…a dance floor area was setup with your very own DJ, Marcelo Davis.  To top of the night of fun, some of your Hispanic Young Adults, offered Salsa Dancing Lessons. It was great to see that once the dance floor was open, it was never empty…

Before the closing of the event and the last few songs of the night, we presented the winners of the raffle with not only their prizes but a cheerful, Father Vincent.

The Casino Event was altogether a great success!

We would like to give a special thanks! to Cristina’s, Mary Kay, and La Hacienda for providing prizes for our raffle; to the Empty Nesters for the delicious food, their time and help; our DJ, our Babysitters Volunteers in the nursery and youth room, and to ALL Volunteers that helped setup and cleanup that night!  We couldn’t have done it without you!  Everything was made possible because of your support, excitement, and energy.

Most importantly, BIG THANKS!!! to our supportive and loving priests: Msgr. Larry and Fr Vincent!  They were just as excited as we were, to see all your faces as well as all the newcomers!

We look forward to seeing you all again soon…so keep an eye out for our SFYA events!

May God Bless you all,

The SFYA Leadership Team
