St Pius X Parish Bazaar 2018

St Pius X Annual Parish Bazaar is always a colorful, lively and a fun filled community day. The parish Bazaar this year (28th July) was no exception. The event was graced with brilliant sunshine, thus the colors of the 11 parish communities sparkled as never before. The Bazaar Theme for this year 'Healthy Happy and Resilient' was on display and evident in all Community Stalls and on the faces of the parishioners. A great day in more ways than one. Praise God.

We Thank the Bazaar Committees for their Hard Work: The Pre-Bazaar Committee; On-the-Day Committee they did a great job. Their many meetings in preparation paid off on the day and things ran smoothly without too much stress – Thanks to our Security Team, our counters, Lillian and Rosemary, Richard, and Angie Kainamoli (Parish Treasurer). Thanks to 360 Tech who provided the Sound System on the Day, the  Green Team (Youth) and the DJ, Nua Kunau who came all the way from Nadi – to our MCs Mausio and Master Dan while good and secure sheds were erected well on time by Nabzville Scaffolding. We thank Lavinia Qalo (Smith) and her team of helpers for decorating the Stage. The Bazaar Committees are appreciative of the effort and good will in all of the Communities during the year.  The Parish Team also recognises and salutes the great effort Community leaders and the Financial Reps made to make this year’s Bazaar a huge success. It was a wonderful display of Community and Parish Spirit. The day was weather-wise kind to us for a change. – The End results were gigantic. The Community stalls couldn’t be better, reflection the Theme of Day – “Healthy, Happy and Resilient”. To everyone involved in one-way or other Vinaka Vakalevu. Communities will surely be having their Vakaciri Salusalu celebrations in the next week or so and those who passed the target will be rewarded.
