Fall Church Picnic on September 15 2019
Each autumn since New Valmeyer was established on the bluff, St. Mary’s joins with St John United Church of Christ to have a church picnic with fried chicken, a silent auction, a country store, raffles, bingo, and live music.
Before the Flood, St. Mary’s picnic was on the second Sunday in September; St. John’s on the fourth Sunday.
Having come together to rebuild Valmeyer on the bluff after the flood, the parishes now come together for a Fall Church Picnic on the third Sunday each September.
