Success: ND Soccer Tailgater at Creighton’s Morrison Stadium

We saw over 100 spirited Club Members, students, parents, and friends on a beautiful Sunday, August 18. The Skutt Catholic High School Marching Band turned the corner of VanTeicher Mall and entertained us for an hour, including the Fight Song. Members took the opportunity to greet our new freshmen, and to renew friendships on the lawn.

The Club Board is especially appreciative of the time and effort invested by:  The cold beverage team; Andy Fenoglio ’88 and Bob Murphy ’80, grillmen; and Catherine Kelly SMC ’81, executive producer. Special thank you to Maggie McKeon for her announcements on the KVSS Spirit Catholic Radio Network.
