Dads' Club

What an amazing weekend!!!

Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to express how awesome the Halloween Party and NERFagdden turned out. From the setup to tear down, the events went off flawlessly, and most importantly the kids had a truly memorable experience. By rough estimate, we had over 250 kids at the Halloween party and 70 kids participated in the Nerf Battle. Events this large do not get thrown together last minute, and there are a whole host of folks that need to be thanked for helping making everything so special. 

We had a ton of support building the pirate ship, and decorating the gym. Not everyone made it into the photo above, but thanks to all that helped out. I’d like to specifically thank Mike Larson and Matt Thomas and their committees for planning and perfectly executing two complex events. Thanks to Tim Augustine for again providing expert guidance in the construction of the Haunted Forest, and Jim Taggart for manning the forest and shepherding the mass of children through safely. 

As always, we are greatly indebted to Ross Gilmore for donating the time, expertise, and material to make the Halloween Haunted Pirate Ship possible! We managed to convince Pat O’Leary to come back one more year and he not only cut his birthday party short, but guided the design and construction of the ship masterfully.

Thank you to Jim Churches and the Dads’ Club Culinary Crew for again providing an amazing spread of food. They totally went out of their way to creatively present all of the awesome goodies. This group came both Friday and Saturday to prep, cook, and then serve all of the food. We are expecting big things from this group the rest of this year, and can’t wait to taste their creations!

Lastly, I’d like to thank Father Mathias and Father Joe for taking the time to support the events; the kids and parents are so happy to see you so involved!
