The Holy Smokin' Jamboree is the big fundraiser for the parish that takes place in early September each year.  If you'd like to get involved but don't really know what you're good at, this is the place for you.  You'll get to know lots of people and have fun doing it.  You could commit nine months in the planning process or as little as a couple of hours the weekend of the Jamboree.
