April 2017 Quarterly Luncheon Meetiing

The Society's Quarterly Meeting was again held at Pio's Restaurant on Saturday, April 29th, with a large and convivial group in attendance.
The meeting was a busy one commencing with the annual election of Board members. Those elected were Robert Brown, Dennis J. Hahn, Joan Koechig, Maureen Rogers-Bouxsein, Janet Newberry Gralen and Justin Watkins.
The election was followed by lunch and a lengthy business meeting where our new Treasurer, Mr. Larry Smith, was introduced, the 60th Anniversary Committee and its Chair, Dr. Robert Sandfort, were recognized and appropriately lauded for their very successful fund raising efforts - which exceeded all expectations - and, a listing of the equipment to be purchased by the 60th Anniversary funds was presented by Dr. Brown.  Our Archivist, Amy Haake, awarded Certificates of Appreciation to the SCCHS Volunteers that were present.
Following the business meeting, a wonderful presentation was made by Theresa Grass, Archivist, and Sister Munch, Historian,  about the history of Philippine Duchesne and the Academy of the Sacred Heart.  The presentation was particularly appropriate as the Academy will celebrate the 200th Anniversary of its founding in 2018.
We hope to see everyone in July at our next QUARTERLY MEETING.
NOTE: The July Quarterly this year is on the 5th Saturday (7/29) instead of the 4th Saturday (7/22).
