Dear Walsh Jesuit Alumni Mother, 

Welcome to another year of Alumni Mothers' Club events and activities! As you may already know, we are a group of mothers whose children have graduated from Walsh Jesuit High School over the past 50 years. We have mothers whose sons graduated in the 60's and mothers whose son or daughter graduated in 2015, and all the years in between - all active members of the club. You do not have to be an empty nester to join! 

Our mission is to foster the friendships we made along the way while continuing to serve and support Walsh Jesuit. By doing this we can stay connected to the Walsh Jesuit community and continue to grow in Ignatian spirit and service. 

I would like to personally invite you to join us and become a member. Yearly dues are $20 and this money funds our budget, which is used to offset the cost of the activities we host and our annual donation to Walsh Jesuit. We are not a money making organization. We have two events per year, one in the fall and another in the spring. We are very excited to offer our fall program this year at the Jesuit Retreat House. Please see the enclosed flyer for details of our first event on Thursday, October 15 as well as a calendar of events for the upcoming year.

In the spring, we host an evening speaker in the theatre at Walsh Jesuit, followed by a wine and cheese reception. Judge Linda Tucci Teodosio, a fellow Walsh Jesuit alumni mother, will be our speaker on April 14, 2016.

Please consider joining and rekindling those friendships made while your son or daughter was at Walsh Jesuit and form new friendships with women who have walked the same path. 

Information is also available online at www.walshjesuit.org. Browse over "School Life", and click on "Parent Clubs" where you will find a link to the Alumni Mothers' Club. You can now complete your membership online and RSVP online for events. For those who would prefer to mail their membership information with a $20 check, please use the enclosed flyer. 

If you have been a member in the past, we thank you for your continued support. Please renew your membership today! To those who have never joined, I hope you will consider becoming a member. 

Sincerely, 

Linda Kardish (’02, ’06, ’11) 
President, Walsh Jesuit Alumni Mothers’ Club
