That event took place every year, as far back as the 40's. We kids of St Helena school had to march through Parkchester to announce their opening. It was truly a big happy event. Many parishoners families had to work to put it together. The Webers, Hartlings, the Kellys and hundreds more at least put the whole thing together. Some years after we were attending Mass Msgr Scanlan made the announcement that the mortgage had been paid off on the church & school.One thing in particular I remember was they had an Indian/Native American dressed in full costume with feathers was there as a celebrity. As a little kid I was so impressed. Don't remember his tribe but he was from NM or AZ. My Dad was not usually lucky at gambling but very year he did manage to win my sister a few dolls.
