“Well, the Frenchville picnic is used for the church. And that’s what keeps our church going all year. A lot of times in this community, people come in and have reunions and things, and this year we have the 100-mile yard sale so it’s total chaos.,” Eileen Pisanechi, a member of St. Mary’s Church said.
