Bowling Club

Did you know that historical evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers? Unfortunately, all the league records were lost to time, so we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.

[small pause for laughter/groans/crickets]

Our apologies for that one. Bowling club returns today after a short hiatus, so if you've paid your registration fee, come out to Lisle Lanes today at 3:30. Cost to bowl is $8.

Move Your Feet To Fill A Seat

Do you love Benet?

On Friday, October 17 at 2:24 Benet will participate in the Move Your Feet to Fill A Seat campaign which seeks to raise money for underprivileged kids who would like to attend Catholic schools but can not afford the tuition.

What are we going to do to help? 

We are asking you to make a donation to the campaign (of at least $1) on next Friday morning and in return you can show your support and have comfy feet by wearing gym shoes to raise money for the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF).  At the end of the day, we will walk around the track to show support for filling empty desks in Diocesan schools.

Stay tuned for more razzle-dazzle on Tuesday’s announcements.
