pasty was when she became involved in the project in 2002. “Lorraine Deblock called and asked me to chop vegetables and I’ve been here ever since,” she said with a laugh. Now Avis recruits volunteers. “The response is always positive. We’re blessed to have so many wonderful volunteers.” While the majority of volunteers attend St. Joseph’s parish, helpers come from other parishes as well. For example, Deb Eisen, who is a member of St. John’s of Cedarbrook, joined the crew in 2014. “I love the community aspect of it,” Deb said. “It’s a great group of people getting together for a great cause.” Devoted volunteer Karla Patrick takes vacation time to assist. Her husband, Randy, also helps out as a member the meat cutting crew. While the majority of volunteers are women, a number of men pitch in as well. Laughs abound throughout the church hall as good natured ribbing is volleyed back and forth. According to Jackie Butorac, the best part of pasty season is the camaraderie. Almost everyone echoes her sentiments. Glee Lundgren said she likes getting to know new people. “We laugh a lot and have fun,” she said. “I love the fellowship and the coffee breaks,” Elaine Butorac added with a laugh.

shows that 2,000 pounds of vegetables, 875 pounds of meat, 1,375 pounds of flour and a host of other items are needed to produce the 3,000-plus pasties. Proceeds are used to make needed repairs on the church, fellowship hall, rectory and the adjacent building which houses church offices, classrooms and an adoration chapel. Last year handicapped accessible doors were installed in the church. Over the years, upgrades have been made to the kitchen, heating and cooling systems, flooring and music system. The group has even purchased defibrillators. Despite the work and time involved, Avis looks forward to pasty season. “I have separation anxiety when it ends,” she said. “I miss the people and the fun. Everyone is exhausted but it’s a good exhaustion.” It won’t be long before the phone starts ringing, the church basement buzzes with activity and production begins.
