Memorial Day is typically the unofficial start to summer, but the St. Anselm Catholic Academy (SACA) Home Academy Association has begun a new tradition for “ringing in” the summer— the “Year End BBQ”! On Saturday, May 30th SACA families and friends gathered in the St. Anselm Courtyard to feast on delicious burgers, hot dogs, beans and salad prepared and served by Tommy Stramka of Mejlander and Mulgannon. And if that wasn’t enough of a celebration there were wonderful desserts—ices and a beautiful cake that said it all: “Happy Summer”! It was a relaxing, fun evening for catching up with each other and celebrating another successful year for SACA.
SACA is blessed to have such involved, energetic parents in the Home Academy Association (HAA). They have worked tirelessly to fundraise for our Academy with events such as the Ladies’ Night Out Extravaganza, Winter Wonderland, the Plant Sale, the Scholastic Book Fair, the Bake Sale and the Used Book Sale. In addition to these major events the HAA members run Pizza Day, Chicken Day, Deli Day, and Bagel Day during the academic year. We are most grateful to the HAA Board Members: Eileen White, President; Maria Caputo, Vice President; Maria Gambino, Treasurer; Fran Auletti, Corresponding Secretary; & Lisa Gutwirth, Committee Coordinator and to the Year End BBQ Committee Members: Regina McPadden, Michelle Soto, Christine Deem, Christina Cahill and the HAA Board Members. We can’t wait to see what the HAA is planning for next year!
All the best,
The St. Anselm Publicity Committee
