Home Dinners - A Tradition at AASH Conferences

A wonderful home dinner hosted by Dr. Britt and Kelly Thedinger

Home dinners have been a long tradition during the past 80 years that AASH conferences have been held.  Most everyone when asked will say they went to the "best home dinner"!  It gives the conference attendee an opportunity to experience the hospitality and cuisine from a local perspective. Last Friday evening, I was a guest at the home of Duchesne Academy Board Trustee, Dr. Britt Thedinger and his wife Kelly. The Thedinger's daughter, Ainsley is an alumna of Duchesne Academy and it was obvious that they are very proud of the education their daughter received at Duchesne.

Our small intimate group made for an evening filled with lively conversation.  Cor Unum awardee, Jean Hicks Miller, her husband Ken, her sister Gail and very good friend Monsignor Mark Campbell were among the dinner guests.  Also on the guest list were incoming AASH Board member, Roselie Bellanca Posselius and AASH Past President Mary Jane Taber Houlihan, AASH Past Board Member Michele Finn, as well as, Jeanne Burke O'Fallon, Sr. Gina Rodee, RSCJ and Sheila Haggas, Head of School.

We started off the evening introducing one another to our hosts while we enjoyed cocktails and delicious appetizers followed by a tour of the house and its beautiful artwork. Our dinner and dessert were a culinary treat! During dinner Dr. Thedinger told us of his interest in collecting prints by artist Mauricio Lasansky and his experience as a past parent and current Trustee at Duchesne.  It was a most comfortable and relaxing evening.  Yes, this was the best home dinner!  Many thanks to our gracious hosts for opening up their home and hearts and treating us to a lovely Sacred Heart tradition - Home Dinners.
