Fall Church Picnic, Third Sunday in September
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.
Fish Fry, October 18
We came to St. Mary’s Parish Hall for what may have been the best fish in Monroe County, cooked by the Knights of Columbus.
Fish dinner included your choice of side dishes: Valmeyer’s famous chippers, potato salad, cole slaw, and stewed tomatoes.

St. Mary’s Parish Hall was the site for a delicious breakfast, cooked by the Knights of Columbus.
