(07/08) 2021 Sports Wrap Up

Mr. Hodge reflects on the 2021 sports season in his latest blog.

(07/02) 2021 TK III Golf Outing

The 2021 TKIII Golf Outing is on!
Sign up your 4-person team for a day of great food, great golfer gifts and raffle prizes on Saturday, August 7, at Willow Wood Golf Course. Registration is limited to the first 30 teams that submit their entry form.

Hole sponsors are also needed. The first eighteen (18) sponsorship forms we receive will have their custom flag used on the course. Additional sponsors will still get a flag but it won’t be placed in 1 of the 18 holes. So, sign up early and get your flag on the course and then display it in your office for the rest of the year. We’re asking for your registration information by July 8,2021 but don’t wait because we’re going to be at capacity.

Proceeds from the outing go towards the TKIII Scholarship Fund, awarded annually to a St Patrick graduate, and to the St. Patrick Alumni Association in memory of Tony Kolarik III.

(06/24) PFCU Cash for Classrooms Recipient: Mrs. Russman

PFCU launched our Cash for Classrooms program this year, running from January to May. This program was created to recognize the dedication and hard work of teachers in our community. Teachers were able to enter themselves or be nominated by someone in the community to win $150 to be used towards any classroom expenses they have. I am excited to share that Stacy Russman was one of our winners. The $150 is just a small token of our appreciation for all of the hard work teachers like her do each and every year.

(06/22) Athletic Association elects new officers

From outgoing President Mike Coyne:

This meeting wraps up fiscal year 2020/21 for us. It was an interesting year full of virtual/in person meetings, unexpected financial hurdles with game attendance restrictions and amazing support for the events we were able to have from great people like you. Even with all of the unknows we faced this past year, we were able to raise the necessary funds to support St Pats sports….whew!

This is my last meeting as SPS AA President. As you will see in the meeting minutes, our leadership team has transitioned and Andy Mosser will take over as President when we kick off our 2021/22 fiscal year in August. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be part of this unbelievable organization. The associations history of supporting St Pats sports over the past 70 years is an amazing story of humble behind the scenes support for our sports programs. I and confident and excited to see what the future brings us under Andy’s leadership.

Meetings scheduled for 2021-22 school year are: August 1, September 12, October 3, November 7, December 5, January 9, February 6, March 6, March 27, May 1, June 5.  All meetings are at 6:30 p.m. in Parish Hall.  Members who attend 8 meetings per year receive a free family athletic pass.
