From all the fun of the chili cook-off and washers tournament on Saturday, to the fun run, petting zoo, pancake breakfast, giant inflatables and everything else on Sunday—this year’s Country Fair was a fantastic weekend! Thanks to all who came out to the Fair, guests and volunteers alike. What a fun and easy way to support Goal IV of Sacred Heart education: the Building of Community. Special thanks to Country Fair Chairs Matt and Jackie Johannesman and Co-Chairs Mike and Bridget Maroney for leading the way.

Fourth Class student Suhani researched Mary Engelbreit as her Famous Missourian, so when the best-selling author and illustrator visited the St. Charles County library at Spencer Creek recently, Suhani’s mother took her to meet her. After presenting and answering questions, Mary signed books and calendars, including her newest work, A Night of Great Joy. Mrs. Reepmeyer—Suhani’s teacher and a longtime Mary Engelbreit fan herself—helped Suhani explain how the class had studied famous Missourians. Together they showed Mary the picture of Suhani standing next to her poster. Mary was humbled and said to Suhani, “Thanks for choosing me!” Mrs. Reepmeyer added, “It’s not every day that you get to meet your Famous Missourian in person!”
