Volunteering brings Sacred Heart alums together all in the name of GOLF

Since I am a board member of the Chicago Women's District Golf Association, yesterday morning I drove to Itasca Country Club to attend our annual Fall Meeting.  This meeting is a nice gathering of approximately 150 woman from all over Chicagoland and a few from Indiana.  The group consists of Golf Chairs, Team Captains and players who have participated this past golf season in team matches and tournaments hosted by the CWDGA.  We gather together for a little socializing over a delicious breakfast buffet, complete with prepared to order omelets and waffles. During breakfast we hold a business meeting and listen to reports and vote on a new slate of officers and directors for the CWDGA.  Beautifully wrapped prizes, "hole-in-one" pins and certificates of appreciation are awarded to many before they depart.  Traditionally the incoming and outgoing board members gather afterwards around Noon for a celebratory toast to a great year with anticipation of yet another wonderful golf season in 2012.  

Of course it seems I can never go far without running into or connecting with fellow Sacred Heart alums.  I first learned from Sally Clissold that she was an alum when she brought to a CWDGA board meeting her copy of Esprit de Coeur which had a photo of me in it. It was later this summer at our annual CWDGA Championship hosted at Ruth Lake Country Club that I learned Nancy Hammond who recently joined the board was an alumna too!  What a wonderful day indeed!   

I hope all have enjoyed this Feast of Mater and have had an opportunity to go to the website to view the beautiful photos.  If not, click below and be sure to turn up the volume!
