On Sunday, August 21, 2016, at Verona Beach State Park, St Basil hosted a rainy-day picnic! It was a wonderful time, despite the weather! All attendees remained under the pavilion, where we enjoyed each others’ company and a lot of great food. Our Most Reverend, Bishop Nicholas Samra attended this special event. Eddie and Mary Nassimos were our barbecue chefs, with assistance from many parishioners. The entire St Basil community wishes to thank all of those who attended, helped cook, brought covered dishes, prepared special recipes, assisted with set-up & break-down, or made a generous donation!
