We have an exciting project brewing on our new IPFES Facebook page!   Bernadette Pires-Herriage is creating online albums as a digital history of our organization.   Dust off the old photo albums, get to a scanner and email photos with names/year (if known) to bherriage@comcast.net ! 

        Help us create this online scrapbook to honor those who worked so hard to represent us in the past, as an archive for future participants
         To view the photos and become "fans", click on our Facebook badge on this blog's home page, or do a search for IPFES Holy Ghost Celebration while signed in to your account.  Not a Facebook page member?  No problem, we'll offer expanded event information at both sites! 

Thank you!
