Dear Alumni,

2015 has been unfolding into such a great year as our Alumni Association has built an incredible amount of MOMENTUM!

Since the beginning of the year you have hopefully seen, heard or felt the presence of the Alumni Association in one of the many events we have hosted or sponsored. It’s the result of being intentional and prepared to make a DIFFERENCE to the Holy Cross community.

We are hosting a GENERAL MEETING this Wednesday, September 16th at 6:30pm at the Holy Cross Convocation Center. We will be announcing changes to our organization, a new long-term strategy, plus much more!

How can you HELP?

We need you to send this message to your respective classes and get them motivated to ATTEND!

Please confirm if you will have a team from your class in attendance and have them RSVP with Steven Zumaran ’09 We will have drinks and snacks available.
