Belles invite fathers for Senior Dads Weekend

first_imgMembers of the Saint Mary’s class of 2014 and their fathers enjoyed events at Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame this weekend during the College’s annual Senior Dads Weekend. Susie Larson, vice president of the 2014 class board, who helped organize the event, said the board worked hard to find an open weekend for this event since last spring, because it had to account for the numerous events on campus and the football schedule. Larson said there was a great deal of interest in all of the scheduled events, which resulted in a large turnout from the senior class and their fathers. “The weekend had 280 students register and our class is 298 strong, so we were extremely excited about the turnout,” Larson said.  Student body president Kat Sullivan said the class board did a good job of including the entire senior class community. “Regardless of who the father figure is in a girl’s life, the class board made sure the events were welcoming to all, including some mothers,” Sullivan said.  The weekend’s events opened with a beer garden and silent auction Friday evening in the College’s Student Center.  Sullivan said the event included an open bar with all types of beer and wine, and the silent auction was filled with donated items from the fathers. “Whatever money that was made from the auction was then given to the class of 2014’s board, so it was a great way to fundraise for future class events,” Sullivan said.  “Also, everyone who went got a beer sty with a French cross on it and little koozies with bowties on them to commemorate the weekend.” On Saturday, the College Archives and the Riedinger House were open for morning tours. Sullivan said this helped the girls to share their College’s history with their fathers.  Senior Bridget Byrne said the tours of Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday afternoon were one of her favorite parts of the weekend, as well as a watch party for the Notre Dame vs. ASU game at CJ’s Bar later that evening. “I have always loved watching games with my Dad, so this was something special for us to do together before graduation,” Byrne said. “It was also so fun to do push-ups in CJ’s during the game watch, and I know all of my friends were really looking forward to this weekend after all of the fun we had at Junior Mom’s Weekend last spring.” The weekend culminated with Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in Le Mans Hall on Saturday night, Sullivan said.  At the Mass, Saint Mary’s students and their fathers celebrated their relationships.  The celebrant, Fr. John Pearson, stressed the importance of letting their parents know how grateful the students were for their love and support, Sullivan said.  “Fr. John talked a lot about making sure us girls recognized that our fathers make sacrifices for us not because they’re expecting a thank you, but because they love us,” Sullivan said. “I think that that really resonated with a lot of girls and their fathers that were present.” The parent weekends at Saint Mary’s are among many students’ favorite traditions on campus, Larson said. “I am a strong supporter in how Saint Mary’s organizes their parent weekends throughout our four years on campus because I think it reflects our experience growing as young women,” she said.

first_imgFine Gael in Inishowen have held one of their largest District Meetings in many years.Minister Joe McHughA number of key issues were discussed at the meeting.Minister of State, Joe McHugh, attended the meeting and here he outlines the issues he says are being addressed locally on the Peninsula. “We had a very positive Fine Gael district meeting this week, with one of the largest turnouts in years, with thorough discussions taking place on key issues that people in Inishowen are focused on and what the priorities are for people in the area – the dominant theme being issues that affect rural Ireland.“There is no doubt that Cockhill Bridge is a priority issue, and I informed those present that a deputation from Donegal will be meeting with the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe, on the 1 April 2015. That deputation will include officials from Donegal County Council and Councillors and it will be an opportunity to highlight directly with the Minister how great the need is for investment on a new bridge.“There was a presentation from members of Young Fine Gael on broadband and the importance of broadband in rural Ireland. I recently had a meeting with Enet, the company which operates the Irish State’s Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) which has become known as regional Ireland’s fibre optic infrastructure, the purpose of that meeting was to highlight the potential of the existing MANs network in Carndonagh and Buncrana. I am also working closely with my colleague, Minister Alex White, on the National Broadband Plan and ensuring that the plan has a key focus on rural areas.“During the district meeting this week, I outlined a number of projects I have been working with the local community on, including: having Minister Paudie Coffey visit Inishowen where he met with members of the MICA Action Group and visited a number of houses, this is an issue officials in my own Department of Natural Resources, the Geographical Survey of Ireland (GSI) team are assisting on, working closely with officials from the Department of Environment; ongoing engagement with the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Marine, Simon Coveney, on much needed upgrades to Greencastle Harbour and Bunagee Pier; the meeting with Minister Coveney’s officials and a number of farmers earlier this year to highlight concerns of commonage farmers; working closely with both Failte Ireland and Minister Paschal Donohoe on the importance of investment at Malin Head, even more so than ever now it is a signature point on the Wild Atlantic Way. “I acknowledged the years of service and personal sacrifice made by both “Black” Mickey Doherty and Peter “The Egg” McLaughlin to the party and their respective communities. I thanked both Councillors Bernard McGuinness and John Ryan for their ongoing and continuous hard work and efforts, their commitment to their communities is a credit to both of them and the work they are doing on the ground is invaluable. I also acknowledged and commended the party members for all their hard and tireless work over the years, there is a great team of people involved in Inishowen.“There was a firm call on the night for more regular meetings and it was agreed that an AGM evening would be arranged for mid May 2015. I want to thank Chairman Paddy Gordon for chairing such a positive meeting and for all his work as Chairman.”FINE GAEL MEET TO ADDRESS KEY ISSUES ACROSS INISHOWEN was last modified: March 12th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Fine GaelInishowenlast_img read more
