After a two-year absence, the St. Matthias Funfest and auction is returning for its 30th year. The Funfest serves as the largest fundraiser for the parish, supplying general expenses to keep the lights on and parish staff paid.

“We wanted something different,” said Vicky Fischer, co-chair of the Funfest. “There’s plenty to eat, a bake sale, auction items, it’s just a good parish get-together.”
