ALBION – The Polish bread is baked, an array of 50 themed baskets packaged, and an assortment of children’s games await.

It’s the annual Holy Family Parish Lawn Fete. The event begins at noon today and runs until 5 p.m. at the Elks Club grounds at 428 West State St.

“It’s a way to get your parish and the community together for fun,” said Sue Starkweather-Miller, the themed basket coordinator.

She thought an autographed team jersey signed by all of the players on the Western New York Flash soccer team may prove to be the most popular item. That jersey includes the signature of Rochester star Abby Wambach.

The Ladies of Charity and other parish members have been busy preparing ethnic foods for today’s event, including beef on weck, Italian sausage, hots, goulash, pasta fagioli and fried dough.
