Region 6 Update

Oct 7, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

Fellow Monogram Winners,

Fall sports are well underway. With the change to the ACC, there are significantly fewer athletic events in our region. However, that should not stop us from participating in various Notre Dame events, such as:

  • There is a great opportunity to help the Men’s Lacrosse team for Playing for Peace: A Day of Service with ND Student-Athletes & Alumni. This day of service, being held on Saturday, Oct. 12, includes a number of service projects at three inner city Catholic schools in Chicago.  It is an exciting way to help schools very much in need with fellow Notre Dame students and alumni. For additional information, or to sign up, CLICK HERE.
  • Participate in your local Alumni Club events, including game watches, service projects and fundraising efforts.
