Sixty-five people attended the 30th celebration of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church of Lakeport on Sept. 8, 2013.

This years celebration was dedicated to Monsignor Carlton Hermann, Yankton; Father Rodney Farke, Brookings; Father Bill Osborn, Colman; and Father Joseph Puthen Kulathil, Florence. These priests have said mass at this chalkstone church.

Father Daniel Moris, Tabor, celebrated the mass with altar servers; Reanna Kotalik and Katelyn Sternhagen; lector was Grace Zimmerman; gift bearers were Joan Mazourek, Martin Mazourek, Ben Kotalik, Brock Kotalik, Joyce Kotalik, and Edward Gleich.

Sacristan was Delight Paulson; organist was Florence Sutera; choir was St. Wenceslaus parish choir; greeters were Darlene Pokorney and Renee Becker; ushers were Gary Becker and Ronnie Cap; dedication readers were Martin Mazourek and Alan Feilmeier; David Cap read names of the priests that served mass at this church.

A moment of silence was for the deceased members in the past year: Bernice Cwach, Katherine Logan, Leonard Gleich, Faye Beran, Norene D. Peterka, Mildred Cimpl, Roman Honner and Daniel Devine.

Next year’s celebration will honor the Laddie Kostel Family.

A pot-luck dinner was served at the Legion Hall, Tabor. A short meeting was held after dinner, talking about trimming the trees and floor in the church.

Next year’s celebration is on Sept. 14, 2014.
