Chicken Noodle Dinner & Bazaar
The biggest fundraiser that the HCAA sponsors is the Annual Chicken Noodle Dinner & Bazaar held at the end of November in the gymnasiums and cafeteria on the grounds of St. Cecilia's Middle/High School.
This event is a prime example of how HCAA promotes Catholic Community involvement. It takes volunteers from the Hastings Catholic School System, from St. Michael's and St. Cecilia's Churches, and countless other volunteers to make this event such a successful one.
Bringing the school, parishes, and community together is one of the main focuses of the HCAA organization. Many volunteers are needed to set up, supply, and run the various booths such as:
- Attic Treasures
- Baked Goods
- Book Sale
- Center Booth Basket Raffle
