Many who came to the Annual Fall Festival held Sunday, Sept. 18, at St. Michael's Catholic Church, Russellville, noticed some marked changes this year. There were new additions housing the new cookhouse, restrooms, to-go window and there was even space for a new pie and cake cutting room. Those who came in for the roast beef and whole hog sausage dinner also were seated and enjoyed having their meals delivered in bowls to their seats by members and youth from the parish.

This was Andrea Koetting's first year as the director of the festival. She had volunteered with the festival for years, helping with the silent auction. She said the festival included the dinner, silent auction for quilts and other items, country store, drawing, bingo, turtle races and other games, and a country band of local parishioners.
