News from Around

PORTLAND, OR –  Oregon’s Catholic Youth Organization, in addition to organizing sports leagues, holds junior high dances throughout the year.  On Saturday, June 4, it’s the parents’ turn. 

  Despite the danger of thrown-out backs and overuse of hair gel, CYO has found two popular Portland bands who specialize in ’80s music — the tunes and beats with which many parents came of age.  The dance is set to begin at 6 p.m. at St. Pius X Parish.   Proceeds from the evening will benefit CYO and Camp Howard.

JAMESTOWN, NY — The youth group from Our Lady of Loreto Roman Catholic Church, Falconer, received the Ed Argey Award for outstanding community service at the annual Diocesan Youth Convention in Buffalo. Group members made 60 fleece lap blankets for the Roswell Park Cancer Institute pediatric ward. Read about it in the Post-Journal

News from ‘Round Here:

  Last Sunday, son Clark returned from his Iraqi deployment for a two-week leave (and arrived earlier than expected!) The day revolved around settling in, visiting with sisters, and sneaking in trouble-shooting on the web-site.

  Monday involved everyone hunkering down in their offices leading into a staff meeting and council meetings on Tuesday.

  Wednesday was a curriculum meeting and a conference call on for MAC and Thursday also was another MAC meeting as well as focus group on the Catholic Newspaper.  Tech glitches delayed the newsletter until the next morning and the evening finished out with a planning meeting for a new program at the Youth Retreat house.

  Friday, youngest daughter arrived and a brunch was held in her honor followed by a tour of the aquarium.  Saturday, my brother and family joined my family in home-made pizza and a two-deck game of Hearts.
