Monogram Club Musings – Blue-Gold Weekend 2016

Apr 18, 2016, 12:41 PM EDT

Aside from the fact the Blue and Gold couldn’t both win Saturday’s scrimmage, this past weekend at Notre Dame was nearly flawless. From the weather (70s and lots of sun) to the victories (all Irish teams competing on campus were perfect) to the many fellowship and service events taking place, it would have been hard to imagine a better few days.

Those good vibes extended to the Monogram Club, which welcomed its board of directors to town and held its spring board meeting on Friday. The Club had the opportunity to conduct its meeting in a unique setting, the Schivarelli Players’ Lounge at Notre Dame Stadium.

Later Friday evening the Club and the Fighting Irish football program co-hosted a dinner for current and former players and their families. The event was held at Notre Dame Stadium and the guests were able to enjoy access to the locker room and field.

Early Saturday morning several members of the Monogram Club board volunteered at the athletics department’s Habitat for Humanity house build. The crew worked hard landscaping and laying sod for the nearly-completed home.

The Monogram Club hosted its Blue-Gold pregame reception inside O’Brien’s at the Compton Family Ice Arena. Even with the gorgeous tailgating weather outside, it was great to see so many Club members come inside to enjoy the festivities in a great location, which many of them hadn’t been able to experience before.

Two four-time Monogram winners who took part in many of the events over the weekend were David Bruton Jr. (‘09) and Ryan Harris (‘07). Bruton and Harris served as honorary captains for the Blue-Gold game and were honored for winning Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos in February. It was great to see them and all the Monogram winners who returned to campus!

Take a look back at the fantastic weekend…

Happy 80th birthday, Marty!
