    WEST MILFORD-On a clear and cool Sunday, on the last week end of summer, approximately 150 St. Joseph Church, West Milford, parishioners gathered to enjoy good food and each others company at the annual Parish Picnic. The event was held at Willow Lake Family Center on Germantown Road. The theme of this years picnic was "Kindness to others changes you and the world". Over 50 children participated in a poster contest relating to the theme, the first place winner being Lauren Vroegindeway. The children also enjoyed scooters and a jumping castle. The Father Francis Koch Council, Knights of Columbus, manned the grills and a group of confirmation candidates helped with parking and set up. An old fashion country pie baking contest was held and the judges selected Paula Korinko's raspberry pie as the first place winner.
